Lauren Franks, APRN

My practice philosophy is always to have my patient leave their visit better than when they came, whether they have emotional, physical, mental, or spiritual needs. As their provider, I hope to positively impact their life, using listening, medication, education, and prayer, as I believe that all aspects of health are interconnected. I would want my patients to know that I want to be their advocate and friend. I want to work with them to reach their health goals.

Lauren Franks is blessed to have her husband, Richard, and two kids, Sawyer and Charlee, who bring Joy to her life and the rest of the family, all from the Sparkman area. She was raised and spent her whole life in a small town, where much of her family still live.

Franks is very involved in the youth, children, and women’s ministries at her church, Sparkman First Baptist, where she has been for the past five years. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, playing the piano, sitting on the front porch watching her chickens and ducks, and riding her bike.
