Quite often, when a family member is under stress, other family members also find themselves faced with residual pressure. The old adage, "You can't see the forest for the trees." certainly holds true for many when they are in a pressured situation. FREND helps clients that feel overwhelmed or stressed out put life's challenges in perspective and find solutions to their problem so they can achieve success in their professional and/or personal life.

Who is Frank Ricci?

Frank is FREND's Director/Co-Founder. He was raised in a hard working immigrant Italian family in Rhode Island. At nineteen he joined the United States Air Force and attended the Corps of Engineers School outside Washington, DC where he received a Secret Clearance and a degree in Computational Geodetics.

Frank says, "One of the highlights of my military career was attending the inauguration of a fellow New Englander and my Commander and Chief, President John F. Kennedy whose wife also from Rhode Island".

After receiving an honorable discharge, Frank continued his education, received a degree in Computer Programming and worked in defense as a Scientific Computer Programmer. (Eventually receiving his Doctorate.)

Frank Ricci was also gifted with an exceptional singing voice. He is the tenth generation of Vocal Artists and Opera Singers in his family, dating back to around the year 1700.

Frank performed internationally and Headlined in Las Vegas alongside legends like Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Reba McEntire, Tony Bennett, Marty Robbins, Tammy Wynette and dozens more. However, after years of notoriety and travelling the world, things were about to change dramatically in his life.

Performing in smoky showrooms took its toll and Frank contracted Cancer from second-hand smoke. After several months of treatment and recuperation he did not have the energy to perform. Frank prayed, that should he be blessed with a complete recovery from this life threatening disease he would dedicate his life to helping people in need avoid a similar situation.
