As an Innovation Advisor, Adrienne helps companies, federal agencies, and regions realize their innovation goals. She believes innovation is the work of teams rather than of the lone genius, so her focus is often on building relationships, shared language, and an appreciation of the power of a collective. She specializes in the alchemy that is getting the right people in the room and helping them create a shared vision and the will to take the next step.
Adrienne has 20 years of experience in strategy- and innovation-centered roles in commercial R&D, economic development, and real estate and land use. She is a graduate of the groundbreaking MBA in Design Strategy program at California College of the Arts and speaks scientist, engineer, creative, and Southerner.
