Franchesca Ramos is #MadeForKnoxville.

Undeterred by setbacks, Frankie has found purpose in being a positive impact for others. With an attentive spirit, she provides tailored guidance so her clients can unlock their full potential.

Being raised in a military family and recently moving from the west coast to Knoxville, Frankie has grown accustomed to big transitions. Still, she knows it isn’t easy to face the unknown. After losing her job in the Mass Tech Layoff of 2023, she decided to pursue her dream to help others through life coaching. As an empath and former People Operations Manager, Frankie is keenly intune with people. She knows it requires intention to overcome obstacles–whether emotional or mental. By working with clients to uncover and remove those blocks, she helps people get to where they want to be.  

“I aim to encourage people of all ages and abilities to create their own incredible and successful life.”

In Their Own Words…

Hi there, my name is Franchesca, but most people call me ‘Frankie’. I am happily married and a stepmother to three wonderful children. Alongside them, we have three fur babies who are an important part of our family – Kitkat, Mulan, and Mimzy. I am extremely passionate about animals and the environment, and I enjoy meeting new people, reading, and living in the present moment.

I am proud of my Puerto Rican heritage, although I was born in Jersey due to my parents’ military service, which resulted in me being a military brat and moving around quite a bit. After spending seven years in San Francisco, I realized the importance of being close to my family and eventually settled in Knoxville, which I now consider my home.

I hold certifications in both People Operations and Life Coaching, and I also have an Associate’s Degree in Marketing. My goal is to integrate myself into the Knoxville community and provide support and empowerment to those around me. I believe in contributing to my community and making a positive impact, and I am excited to see what the future holds.

xoxo, Franchesca

What led to entrepreneurship:

I experienced a significant turning point when my tech company unexpectedly let me go during the recent Mass Tech Layoff. It was a devastating blow since I had formed close connections with my colleagues and felt that I had positively impacted their journey in various ways. However, this experience reinforced my desire to continue making a difference for others and motivated me to pursue entrepreneurship instead of working for someone else. I wanted to continue changing lives even if it’s for the smallest reasons.

Lessons learned:

When it comes to entrepreneurship, it’s important to keep in mind that experiencing failure doesn’t mean the end of the road. Instead, it can serve as an opportunity for a fresh start. It’s unrealistic to embark on this journey without experiencing a setback or two. However, if you begin with the understanding that failure is a possibility, you’ll be better equipped to handle it.
