We’re dedicated to giving back to others because we’ve seen how the smallest amount can make a difference in someone’s life.

Giving Back To The Community
Hunger & Homelessness
Fran wouldn’t be here today without the kindness of strangers. Post-WWII, a family living on a farm in rural Wisconsin sent food and care packages to her grandmother, who lived at a refugee camp in Germany with her four young sons. The American family didn’t have much but gave everything they could – from tins of rice and Spam to burlap sacks used to make clothing and shoes. Fran’s family survived through the generosity of others — a fact that’s drastically shaped her worldview and she holds close to her heart.
Youth Education, Arts & Sports
While growing up, lessons played a big part in Fran’s life. Piano, ballet and violin lessons that is. While Fran didn’t love playing piano and 16 years of pliés and pirouettes didn’t make her a great dancer, the concentration and comprehension skills learned through classical violin training have helped her throughout life. She was fortunate to have access to these enrichment opportunities – and a mom who was happy to drive her all over the state – and knows the lasting impact arts and athletics have on kids’ lives.
Through the firm’s connection to the biker world, Fran has gotten to know police officers and firefighters throughout the community. Over the years, she’s seen their “huge hearts” and charitable giving on display at school supply drives and throughout the holidays. One of the most heartwarming experiences she has each year is buying bikes and toys and helping first responders deliver them to children on Christmas Eve.
Community Health & Wellness
A lifetime of allergies, asthma and genetic defects allows Fran to truly understand and empathize with those who have health challenges and compromised immune systems. It’s what makes her a medical Nancy Drew of sorts. She loves researching ways to help her clients get better – whether that’s combing through medical studies, watching surgeries on YouTube, or staying educated on the latest medical treatments and technologies.
After WWII ended, Fran’s father, Werner, was living in a German refugee camp with his recently widowed mom and three brothers. There was nothing to eat and the family fended off starvation by eating grass. One day, a kindhearted American soldier handed Werner half of his sandwich. Decades later, Werner still remembers that offering as “heaven,” and has passed his fondness and respect for veterans on to Fran.
Animals & Wildlife
Fran’s love for all creatures great and small goes back to childhood when she hung flyers around town advertising “Fran’s Free Animal Hospital.” She and her Dad worked in the garage, helping as many animals they could. These days, Fran and her family live with a menagerie of pets and rescue animals, including 3 dogs, 1 cat and a gerbil. And she’s still saving baby birds and other critters (with help from her three sons) while advocating for animals.
