Why oceans? Drs. Aimee and Eric Frank chose the name oceans because of their love for the beach, nature and the calming salt water ocean waves. It also connects the E in Eric and the A in Aimee as they are husband and wife. They love to travel across oceans to many places experiencing new cultures and food. As advanced open water PADI scuba divers, Drs. Aimee and Eric Frank look forward to sharing photos and experiences from dives in the Indian, Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, bringing the oceans to Greater Westfield.
