Meet Coach Frankie
Your Health Matters
Welcome to Talk Health with Frankie. My name is Fransine Sanchez, however, most call me Coach Frankie. I am the founder and president of Talk Health with Frankie Co., Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
The mission of Talk Health with Frankie is to change Durham from the city of medicine to the city of health with a Holistic Medicine approach. We pride ourselves in helping others heal from within outward. Over the past seven years Talk Health with Frankie Co., Inc. has worked to improve the health of Durham North Carolina and RTP area and hopes to spread their reach throughout the country.
As the Director of Wellness & Quality and Health Coach at Durham Family Medicine, I have spent the last 10 years developing an atmosphere where people can work together to create a culture of health. The partnership with DFM and THWF was established to provide health coaching to a community in need of change. Together with the providers at DFM practice, we implement a team-based approach to treating and reversing lifestyle diseases.
Frankie attended The Institute for Integrative Nutrition gaining a board certification as a Holistic Health Coach. She has studied hundreds of dietary theories and practiced many food-based therapies. In addition to obtaining board certification as a Holistic Health Practitioner, Frankie is an AFAA certified group fitness instructor, Licensed Zumba, Zumba Kids, and Zumba Kids Jr Instructor. Frankie is currently obtaining a degree in Behavioral and Social Sciences at North Carolina Central University and plans to apply to Graduate School upon completion of her degree. Her goal is to treat patients with a holistic approach that focuses on lifestyle and not just medicine.
