As a long-term practitioner of meditation and yoga, Adrienne has promoted social and emotional well-being in schools throughout her 15-year career as an educator. She integrated Nonviolent Communication and social justice topics in her English Language Arts classroom and continued to expand her contribution by completing the Mindful Schools Year-long Certification Program in 2014. Since then, she has been teaching mindfulness to her students, fellow teachers, school staff, parents, and the local community. Additionally, serving as a Positive Behavior Intervention and Support Coordinator (PBIS) for the last 2 years (2017-19), Adrienne has worked to develop SEL programs to promote positive interactions on her campus and district. She has also had opportunities to present on the topics of mindfulness, SEL, and PBIS at the annual Multi-cultural Education conference at CSUS, the Peaceful Schools Conference, and several school districts.
Adrienne has now taken her passion for promoting mental and emotional well-being into the roles of independent Mindfulness Educator, Yoga Teacher, and Integrative Life Coach. She specializes in Non-violent Communication (NVC), Heart -Centered Yoga, and a trauma informed approach to life-coaching. She works with organizations, youth, and adults.
