Adrienne began her love for the water’s excitement and calm as she spent her childhood summers with her grandparents on the shores of Annapolis, Maryland. She would enjoy Chesapeake Bay sunsets and was taught to water ski and regularly navigate the family boat. Her travels have taken her to so many beautiful bodies of water, which has added to her memorable experiences. Adrienne realized that she couldn’t live without those sunsets and boat adventures, so she continues to spend summers boating and capturing the beauty that only the shores can bring.

Adrienne completed her bachelor’s degree in Business with a focus in Management at Howard University. She quickly started a career in Human Resources and helped small and large organizations improve their processes, implement strategic initiatives, and strengthen their Human Resources function. Her most proud moments as an HR leader has been helping organizations reach new pipelines of diverse talent and create cultures that allow every employee to grow and thrive. Adrienne has continued her education at Georgetown University, where she is finishing a Master’s degree in Human Resource Management. She is Ocean Conservancy’s Senior Vice President, People, and is delighted to work with an organization that aligns with her passion as she supports their mission and driven teams.
