Adrea has been involved in the attractions and entertainment industry for 40+ years. Her work has taken her around the globe. Living and working in Europe, Asia, and across the United States has directly impacted her approach to the human element and cultural sensitivity from both the employee and guest side of experience.
Her background as a professional theatrical director, choreographer, performer, writer, and designer has influenced her operational expertise allowing her to exercise both sides of her brain in innovating the guest experience.
She is passionate about and invested in practicing IDEA (Inclusion Diversity Equity Accessibility) concepts having done since her earliest days in the industry…before had a label. The use of multiple levels of learning (visual, aural, kinesthetic, logical, social, solo, natural) throughout the training and operational processes are core to her tenants to work to assure information is received in the most effective and efficient manner to the individual team member.
Adrea is dedicated to volunteerism working diligently in mentoring and development program, as well as human and animal rights, and so appreciates Meow Wolf’s good work as a B Corp.
