Ms. Franz grew up in the Midwest and completed her undergraduate degree in social work at Tabor College. Graduating with her Masters in Social Work from the University of Kansas in 1980, Ms. Franz came to Houston in 1985 because she was chosen to receive the prestigious Postgraduate Fellowship in Clinical Social Work from Baylor College of Medicine.

In her independent business, Ms. Franz provides consultation for individuals, couples and business groups including several major Employee Assistance Programs servicing employees at leading oil gas and manufacturing industries, engineering corporations, business owners, as well as county, state and federal government branches. Ms. Franz develops bridges between people by establishing safe, trusting, and responsive environments—where all people can learn.

Additionally, she is a part of a Critical Incident Stress Management Team which is available to provide appropriate crisis intervention throughout Houston.
