She graduated in 1995 from Stephen F. Austin University with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. After eight years, Francis moved home to Bossier City. She began working at Willis-Knighton as an operating room nurse for the next eight years and moved up to the head nurse position.
Francis discovered an interest in urology and moved to a different nursing position. She continued her education and graduated with a master’s degree in nursing from University of Cincinnati. She received her Family Nurse Practitioner certification in 2015. Francis worked as an orthopedic nurse practitioner for five years before continuing her work with Willis-Knighton at Ark-La-Tex Urology.
Her husband, Tim, also works at Willis-Knighton and they have five grown children. Francis cares for her patients like she would her own family; the way she would like to be treated as a patient. When not seeing patients, Francis enjoys planting flowers in her yard, working out and traveling the country. She loves hanging out with her family and friends.
