Frankie Arlette. Named after her father, and his father, and his mother, and her father.

Activities Director for the Heritage Square Retirement Manor. She’s brand new to replace the old activities director who had a bit of an unfortunate accident during one of the activities.

Her mother died two years ago from a stroke. Her father is still living well and healthy. They speak every weekend over the phone. He wishes she didn’t move so far away, but understands why. He’s considering making the move out there too if she likes her new town.

Was engaged to her Highschool sweetheart for two years. It ended abruptly when they both realized they were hanging on to the “idea” of them being this in love romantic couple, when neither of them were really in love anymore. They’re both still friends and occasionally talk.

She’s dated several people since then, some more serious than others. Her most recent breakup was with a coworker and didn’t end so amicably. The guy fell harder and faster than she did, then starting pushing and pressuring. When she broke it off, he made their work environment so unpleasant she had to quit. After some strong words and changing her number, he seemed to get the hint. But when a job opened up elsewhere, she still jumped on it. Frankie just didn’t feel comfortable knowing she could run in to him anywhere in town. The new job was only 4 hours away, so she could easily make the drive to visit family and friends.

Frankie is not super religious or spiritual but does believe strongly in God. It helps her feel secure knowing that “someone has a plan” and everything isn’t just random tragedy. Especially in her line of work where she has to deal with death of people she cares for on a regular basis. She’s not an avid church goer, but attends it sporadically when she feels she needs a little guidance.

She is a “bright” personality and cheerful disposition. This helps her a lot in her work. She keeps her energy up while out and about in public, then recharges on her own time with quiet things. Since she spends all day entertaining a group of people, on her off time she prefers small intimate things. Is great at mediating problems between people. She’s patient, knows how to listen, and usually knows how to calm people down. When it comes to handle issues people have with HER it gets a little trickier. Frankie is a people pleaser, someone getting angry or aggressive at her personally takes her back a bit and she flounders. Physical violence is a NO. Some people just don’t have the heart to hurt a fly, and she is one of them. Frankie likes to BELIEVE she could handle it, but she couldn’t even kick the padded instructor too hard when she took self defense classes. Ignoring issues with personal conflicts, she’s a very secure and self-reliant woman. Her self-esteem is healthy – she knows what she’s good at and what she struggles with. When she has goals, she strives to achieve them. So she she’s enjoying her new job and home, and is hoping to build a full life there.

She’s just finished moving in to her new little house. It’s super old and falling apart, but it’s charming and cute. Frankie is doing a lot of the repair work herself when she can. She loves do-it-yourself stuff and this even extends to having a beautiful garden space.

Has never learned how to ride a bike.

Avid reader of sci-fi novels. Might be a little nutty and believes in visiting aliens.

Gets really annoyed with bad drivers and it’s one of the rare times she curses.

Frankie REALLY wants a dog, but worries about the poor dog being bored when she’s not at home so she never gets one.

She has a surprisingly high tolerance for pain, which is a bit of problem because she’ll push herself when she really SHOULDN’T because “it doesn’t hurt that bad”. Be it getting sick or an injury.

Gives people silly nicknames when she can’t remember their name.
