Francesca DiPaola grew up in New Jersey with a big Italian family. She graduated with her BFA in Acting from Marymount Manhattan college. As soon as she graduated she was cast as a series regular on a Lifetime TV series. She worked on several indie films, made a pop music album produced by the legendary Dean Bailin and wrote and hosted her own web shows such as "Crazy Cab Stories" and more recently "FreeThink" -- which racked up a half a million views on the Rizzle app.
Throughout her performance career, Francesca helped out with her family's non profit organization, Homes for Veterans. In April of 2020 - Francesca tragically lost her father, the founder of the organization to the atrocities of COVID19.
Francesca immediately decided to step away from performing and focus all of her energy on philanthropy and carrying on her father's mission - to serve disabled veterans. She now serves as the CEO and Chair of the organization.
