Franki Darnold

Senior PR Manager

"Be nice and the rest will take care of itself."


As a Senior PR Manager, Franki’s main focus is on securing media coverage for her clients across cybersecurity, AI, fintech, digital accessibility and other industries. Staying on top of news and strategizing media outreach are her top priorities as she works to raise brand awareness and share her clients’ exciting stories.

Originally from San Clemente, California, Franki attended the University of Rhode Island where she played volleyball and received her undergraduate degree in writing & rhetoric as well as a master’s in communications studies. Outside of the office, Franki is likely exploring her home of Boston (or anywhere else in the U.S. where adventure calls).
