About Frankki

Frankki is a founding member of the McKinsey Denver Office, where she contributes to our efforts to develop the regional economy and build lasting connections with the local business community and beyond. 

Taking a broad view of the future of healthcare in the United States, Frankki offers her expertise to a range of organizations across this complex sector, advising private healthcare systems, government organizations, not-for-profit hospitals, and health-oriented nonprofit organizations.

With a keen interest in magnifying the power of the private, public, and social sectors in the name of greater public health and financial sustainability, she helps her clients be more effective in reaching the right strategic objectives.  Her support includes boosting operational efficiency, redesigning organizations for performance, developing strategy, accelerating leadership development, fostering top team alignment, and building skills and capabilities.

Examples of her work include:

  • Leading a comprehensive cost diagnostic focused on clinical performance across the entire footprint of a large regional health system; results served as the foundation for a broad performance transformation that cut costs by more than 10 percent
  • Integrating a health insurance payor and health care provider into a single integrated delivery network following an acquisition
  • Conducting an assessment of operational efficiency improvement potential for an academic medical center; the effort involved transforming and streamlining all non-clinical support functions including finance, HR, real estate, and purchasing
  • Driving a strategy development, performance transformation, and organizational redesign initiative for a national non-profit health organization; the effort established a more effective strategic position in the disease-fighting landscape through new partnerships, and inspired changes in talent management and organizational culture that directly improved financial performance
  • Leading a comprehensive diagnosis and redesign for the enterprise finance organization of a large, not-for-profit national health system across all markets and the national organization; the transformation resulted in more than 30 percent cost savings as part of a broader redesign effort across clinical and non-clinical support functions.

Frankki has long been interested in issues of health and development. Before joining McKinsey, she worked with a number of philanthropic and non-governmental organizations to drive research effectiveness in the name of better global health outcomes, including Innovations for Poverty Action, the Gates Foundation, the World Health Organization, and the Clinton Foundation. As a Fulbright scholar, she lived and worked in Spain where she researched public health trends including anti-tobacco legislation, childhood obesity, and universal healthcare for undocumented immigrants.

In Colorado, Frankki is a mentor with the Unreasonable Institute, a program that offers guidance and support to young entrepreneurs launching socially-minded ventures.
