Adrienne originally trained as an architect. When her son Carl was diagnosed with autism in 2001, her personal and professional interests shifted. She sought to understand how best to help him.
Attending the Belonging Matters conference in 2013 was a pivotal moment for her. She heard stories of people with a disability attaining fulfilling lives, rich in relationships and valued roles. This expanded her understanding of what could be possible for Carl.
Since then she has continued to learn about the art of building good lives for people with a disability. Adrienne has worked with Imagine More since 2015.
