Adrienne joined Werry Workforce Whāraurau late 2017 to establish our newly created communications role. Having arrived in New Zealand in mid-2017 from Northern Ireland, Adrienne's past experience spans charitable and government organisations both there and in America. She has worked in numerous cross-community and youth NGOs, as well as within government departments that engaged directly with regional workforces.
Adrienne is also deeply interested in psychology, completing an MSc Psychology and volunteering on a large scale meta-analysis examining interventions for aggressive behaviours for children (using the Cochrane Protocol) just before relocating to Auckland. She is passionate about people and supporting the hard work that they do, but is especially proud to join the Werry team to support the infant, child and adolescent mental health workforce.
