Frankie Engelking

Director of Student & Community Wellness

I earned a Masters of Arts degree in Education from the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC, and a Bachelor of Science degree from Towson University in Baltimore, Maryland. I hosted a live call-in radio program entitled Perspectives on Health on WGTS 91.9 FM for nine years. I love to swim and while spending time in Maine every summer I swim across the beautiful Spring River Lake. I am currently the Director of Student and Community Health and Wellness. It has been my professional dream to orchestrate a community-wide program that benefits every member of the community on a personal level. I have taught health education in public and private schools throughout Maryland, DC, and Virginia, consulted with the Department of Health and Human Resources for the State of Maryland and developed Curriculum for The National Institute of Drug Abuse. I originally came to McLean as a Substance Abuse Education Consultant over 20 years ago. I quickly discovered the compassion and commitment this​ faculty demonstrates​ for their students. It was a community I wanted to be part of. I have enjoyed the many different positions I have held over the years but have always kept health education at the heart of all the work I do. My passion is to inspire people to feel good about their health and wellness. I delight in seeing students eyes brighten as they make connections between their behaviors and their health and happiness. My greatest joy iswhen​a student, faculty/staff, or parent tells me that ​something I shared with them inspired them to take control of their health and wellness.
