Meet Our Team


Mary Beth King, MSSA; Executive Director 
Mary Beth King, MSSA is the agency’s Executive Director and works closely with the rest of our team to determine best practice policies for the agency and for the children and families we work with around the world. Having worked with several agencies prior to re-opening Frank, she now heads our Primary Provider program, coordinating with attorneys, home staff, and government officials in numerous countries. She is mom to three, including our occasional 'office assistant' who sometimes stops by to pull all the books off the shelves and push every button on the phone! She and her family completed their adoption of their son from China in October 2018.


Alison Sandridge; Program Coordinator

Alison Sandridge coordinates the majority of our international adoptions in Africa, most notably in Sierra Leone, Congo, and Cameroon, and serves as a wonderful resource for families both personally and professionally. She is mom to four funny, kind, active children from Uganda, two of whom arrived to the US as teens. When not chauffeuring to track meets, football practice or basketball games, Alison is busy answering inquiries, checking in with our staff on the ground and helping families cope with the ups and downs of international adoption.


Kelly Dempsey
Frank Adoption Center partners with Dempsey Law, PLLC and Kelly Dempsey, principal and owner of Dempsey Law, to handle the US immigration component of international adoptions.

Kelly is an accomplished international adoption attorney who has helped hundreds of families overcome obstacles in dozens of countries around the world.
