Fran was born and raised in Santiago, Chile. She came to Boston in 2018 to pursue a Master’s at the Hult International Business School, where her studies focused on nonprofit management, communications and development.

During her Master’s program, Fran volunteered at the National Council for Occupational Safety and Health (National COSH), where she supported the Co-Executive Director by coordinating communications projects, conducting outreach and trainings in Spanish to immigrant workers.

Afterwards, Fran joined The Welcome Project and became the lead coordinator of the Somerville Worker Center. Through the Somerville Worker Center, Fran got to work closely with MassCOSH and the Brazilian Worker Center, who were close collaborators of the new program.

First as an Organizer and now as a Director, Fran has worked hard to create programming and outreach to ensure that workers could receive their hard-earned wages and return home safe and well. She enjoys working with the immigrant community, helping them organize at work, building relationships with the Injured Workers Committee, and participating in campaign efforts to better the conditions for temporary workers.
