After completing a science degree in 1988, Adrienne knew that a life in the lab was not for her. While she loved science, she loved talking and writing about it more. Communications seemed a perfect fit and Adrienne began working with Parks Canada in Jasper National Park. For more than a decade, she worked as an interpreter or teacher for a variety of employers, including Parks Canada, the Bamfield Marine Station, Bluewater Adventures, and West Island College.
During these years Adrienne also began to hone her skills as a writer, a job that eventually became a full-time career. Her first book was published in 1991 and she has since published more than 30 titles. She writes for both adults and children, most often on topics of science, nature, and history.
Adrienne combines her experiences as an interpreter and writer to offer services to clients as a writer, editor, project manager and researcher. Her work is diverse, from creating a storyline and overall concept for a new interpretive centre to writing the management plan for a Wildlife Management Area to researching the history of Long Beach to writing and editing science textbooks and the children’s science magazine, KNOW.
