When Ms. Frankie G. Ford first walked through the doors of Office Evolution, it was apparent that she would be a wonderful and an important addition to our Ohana. I had the opportunity to sit down with Ms. Frankie to ask her a few questions about herself, her business, and her life as an entrepreneur.
Ms. Frankie has a long history in social work, including running a group home. When she first decided to open her group home to at-risk adolescent men, the laws had changed and required that she be a high school graduate. With the determination to help those she cared about, she decided to go back to school at the age of fifty-four and, within two months, she earned her G.E.D. On the same day that she graduated, she was also awarded her license to operate the group home. This was only the first step on Ms. Frankie's journey to where she wants to be and, in her words, "It's always worth it to go out there and get what you want.".
Along her path, she knew a young girl named Amanda, she promised Amanda that she would take care of those in her life who needed her most. This led her to beginning her certification agency, House of Amanda, LLC. House of Amanda, LLC provides training and certifications for life-saving measures, including; child, infant and adult CPR, first aide, AED training, and bloodborne pathogenawareness. She’s passionate about making sure that those around her can be prepared to be the calm voice in times of disaster and this shows in the training she provides.
When asked about the clientele for whom she provides training, she reminded me that the things she teaches are skills that everyone should possess. She said, "You just never know when something’s gonna happen right in front of you, and you have to know what to do and how to move forward.". It's true that disaster can strike anyone without warning. With that in mind, she offers large and small classes, and one on one training is also available. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, she has even been able to shift her training structure to accommodate social distancing, and offers a portion of the training through an online portal.
Ms. Frankie can provide training at your location, or her at her private office at 806 Green Valley Road Suite 200, Greensboro, NC.
Please visit Ms. Frankie's website to schedule your group or single training session! There is no better time than now to be prepared for an emergency.
