Francine was born and raised in Orange County, CA. At the young age of 3, she was already showing signs of becoming a performer. Constantly hamming it up and entertaining her family, it was inevitable that the stage would become her second home. By the age of 6 she was performing in industrials, music videos and live performances. She trained at a competitive dance studio under established choreographers and continued her training at the University of California, Irvine where she obtained her BFA in Dance Performance with a minor in Sociology. A visit to New York City got her hooked on Musical Theater and she has been pursuing it ever since. Francine has worked for Broadway Legend Baayork Lee on numerous projects and most recently, Patrick McCollum, the choreographer for Tony Award Winner “The Band’s Visit.” When she's not doing the performer hustle, you can find Francine in a coffee shop, baking treats in her kitchen or trying out a new restaurant...basically, anything to do with food. It's the Filipino in her
