Frank Monahan

Frank Monahan

Frank Monahan, President & Executive Director of Kindness Korp, is an alumnus of Penn State University.  

Graduating with a Microbiology degree, Frank worked 10 years as a laboratory technologist, working on the foremost virology diseases of the times from Herpes, Epstein-Barr Virus, Human Papilloma Virus, and AIDS.  Frank worked at SmithKlineBeecham Labs (now GlaxoSmithKline) and in conjunction with other scientists from DuPont Labs, designed one of the first AIDS detection kits on the clinical market.

Frank left the science field shortly after the collaboration with DuPont for the advertising and marketing fields, working with Snyder Communications, Admine.com, and ProAd at the executive level. 

In 2006, Frank started his own company, Rocket Science Productions, LLC.  It began as an independent publishing company, but now has blossomed into a multimedia company, including book and magazine publishing, independent music production and marketing, a series of podcasts under the Division, WRSPradio.com, TV Production, and Sound Studio Pods.

Frank has also written four children’s books, the Stanley & Norman series, about his own two Basset Hounds, pictured in the photo.

Kindness Korp, LLC was formed in 2019, inspired by the people and patients Frank met at the Johns Hopkins Medical Center while he himself was being treated for cancer.  The need for support, strength, and giving of oneself to help others comes easy to Frank, and he wants to see this organization expand his own charitable actions to help more and more people in need of the easiest thing anyone can give….Kindness!

Kindness Korp is a registered 501(C)3 grassroots organization helping adults and children with cancer everywhere in the U.S. that needs our Kindness. We hope to help through acts of kindness with programs exactly where needed. Our goal this year is to impact the personal lives of those going through these catastrophic medical challenges by giving them strength, fortitude, community, and even a bit of whimsy, when and where it is most needed. We hope to make a difference, not through research, but instead by empowering the souls of the afflicted thereby making them stronger for the medical fight they face and the long road ahead.
