Adrienne Avery

Public Speaker, Volunteer, and Aspiring Project/Event Manager in Brooklyn, New York

Hire me

Hey, I’m Adrienne. I’m an aspiring project and event manager living in Brooklyn, New York. I am a fan of music, cheesecake, and Sunday afternoon naps! I’m also interested in volunteer work (I've built homes in Haiti) and charity walks (I'm an Avon 39er!).

I’m an 8-year communications professional with special expertise in administration, project management, higher education, marketing, and entertainment.

Most recently, I have served as an adjunct professor at Baruch College. In this role I help foster a learning environment where my students learn how to use their voice in powerful and influential ways. In addition, I plan, evaluate, and revise curricula, course content, course materials, and methods of instruction.

Colleagues know me as a task structured member of the team. I follow agendas, appreciate giving and receiving clear direction and focusing on results. I understand what makes an organization or project function, and have the special ability to plan and execute procedures. I enjoy casting a vision, motivating and directing people to harmoniously accomplish the purpose we have set out to achieve.

I have an MA from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro and a BS from Western Carolina University.

I am currently pursuing new opportunities and can be reached either through this profile or by phone at (917) 275-7549.
