Adrienne holds a B.A. in English and psychology, and an M.A. in English. She has consulted for both education and industry on effective writing of educational materials, memos, letters, and reports.

Always an advocate for preventive health-care access for all, and one whose heart breaks for homeless animals and their plight, Adrienne has felt fortunate to volunteer for People for Animals as a screener since 2009. 'Working with People for Animals allows me to feel like I am doing something to help PREVENT the consequences of homelessness, not just react to it,' she explains. Just prior to working with PFA, she helped initiate and volunteered in the Respect Program for ACT NOW. The Respect Program was a reading and discussion outreach for youth in the schools, encouraging compassion in human-animal relationships, including a spay/neuter awareness program. In 2010 Adrienne joined the board of People for Animals.
