Adrienne was born, raised, and educated in the Commonwealth of Virginia. She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Performance and a minor in English with a self-guided focus on British literature from Longwood University. In spite of her degree in performance, Adrienne has worked professionally as a technician and stage manager with the Virginia Theatre Association, the Santa Fe Opera, and Shakespeare Santa Cruz.

Adrienne returned to the Blue Ridge when she enrolled in Mary Baldwin University’s Shakespeare & Performance program where she received both her Master of Letters and Master of Fine Arts. Year round, Adrienne is the ASC’s Company Manager and the Camp Life Coordinator for the ASC Theatre Camp every summer. In all that free time she has lying around, you can find Adrienne walking her dogs with her husband, lifting heavy things at her Olympic weightlifting gym, or slowly chipping away at the complete works of Stephen King.
