Mechanical Engineer: Adrienne has a B.S. & M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Rhode Island, and has completed graduate coursework at Harvard University in Sustainability studies. She is a licensed Professional Engineer and LEED Green Associate. Her career path has taken her on an amazing journey which includes Ultra High Purity Engineer for Lucent Technologies, Multilevel Interconnect Development Engineer for Bell Labs, Professor and Program Director for Emerging Technologies at the State College of Florida, and presently, Principal Engineer for Adicot, Inc., a consulting engineering firm. Adrienne was awarded two patents for her innovative contributions to the Tungsten CVD process for low-temperature manufacturing applications; and was named Florida’s 2012 Post-Secondary Educator of the Year in part because of her role as founding director of her college’s Alternative Energy program. Her biggest joy and proudest accomplishment is her role as mom to her two sons, Riley and Miles. In their spare time, Adrienne and her husband restore homes to their former glory. Their most recent project was a complete restoration of a 1950s mid-century modern; preserving the architectural integrity of the original design while transforming the home into to a modern, highly energy efficient structure. Adrienne has been been a vegetarian for over 25 years, an avid yogi, and, through her research, an avid proponent of a sustainability in all aspects of life. When looking for a way to give back, she found that her skills and passions were directly inline with One Community’s vision and mission. As a One Community Volunteer, Adrienne is currently helping create CAD standards and contribute to the HVAC design for the Duplicable City Center.
