Through the course of Adrianne's career, she has recognized the power of good communication and interpersonal communication. Working in a scientific field has many obstacles especially when scientific and technical data is not easily understood. Many OHSE professionals struggle with poor presentation and public speaking skills. This can lead to miscommunication of critical information because the audience tuned out during its delivery. Adrianne is passionate about public speaking and is eager to help other OEHS professionals improve their public speaking and communication skills. She continues to improve her public speaking skills as she is a member of the Toastmasters International organization. Adrianne has had six opportunities to speak at different professional conferences in the past three years.
