Frances Townsend, a Talented ex-Public Servant Who Served under George W. Bush’s Government
Born on 28th December 1961 in Mineola, New York, to John Fragos, a roofer and Dorothy Townsend, a construction company office manager, Frances Townsend has been an intelligent lady from childhood. She’s the first person in her family to get a high-school diploma and a Jurist Doctor Degree. The 61-year-old lady has served in both corporate and government environments.
By her 11th birthday, Townsend sent letters to the cardinal, bishop and Vatican requesting consent to serve as an altar boy. When nobody heeded her letter campaign, she tried sneaking into the church dressed as an altar body, a mission that ended in futility after she was caught.
She officially entered the law industry in 1985, serving as an assistant district attorney in Brooklyn, New York. In 1988, she was appointed to the office of United States Attorney by Rudolph Giuliani. Her toughness and commitment to handling white-collar crime lawsuits earned her credit. Through her achievements serving the office of U.S attorney, George W. Bush spotted and assigned her to the Department of Homeland Security.
Most of Frances Townsend’s service years have been centered on breaking down barriers and opening new paths to create room for women to discover career paths in tech and national security industries. She’s married to John Michael Townsend, a practicing lawyer, and both are blessed with two sons. During her time as a boardroom member and active participant in national security meetings, Townsend was the only female. That’s one of the reasons she has emphasized making her appearance count wherever she is.
