Co-Owner & Founder/ Web Designer/ Lead Content Strategist & Marketer

Adriénne Kouremetis brings a diverse background to communication coaching, as a former actor, retirement plan coordinator, and teacher. In 2013, Adriénne & Jenifer formed a mastermind of 2, meeting once each week to assess professional & life goals. It was through these meetings that Adriénne identified a desire to learn coding. While still teaching, she began taking online coding courses in 2014, and through her increasing knowledge of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and PhP, she found her ultimate career love. She co-founded Acting for Scientists in 2015 and Professional Development Practice Lab, LLC in 2016, where her passions align perfectly as the Web Designer and Content/ Marketing/ Financial Manager. As the “details” person for PDPL and as a freelance web designer/ developer, she now spends her days designing and building websites and online content, and thoroughly enjoying the varied responsibilities that co-owning a micro-business provides.
