Adria has a broad skill set, good judgment, and excellent communication skills. She invested her time to know our employees and business model, and she readily pivoted from presenting to the senior leadership team to coaching our managers and meeting with employees. Whether guiding an entrepreneurial start-up or working to build scale in a larger organization, Adria consistently delivers high-quality results. I strongly endorse her to any organization.

I have worked with Adria for many years across three companies. I am always impressed by her energy, her optimism, and her great intuition about what was happening in the company’s workforce. Especially in challenging situations, Adria is calm and professional. Adria is extremely responsive and creates partnerships with all levels of employees. I highly recommend her services and would gladly work with her again.
