Adrienne joined Rice Village Animal Hospital as the Practice Manager in March of 2015. She brings with her over 15 years of veterinary experience and an extensive background in business management. Prior to working in veterinary medicine, Adrienne spent many years in retail management where she developed her love for team building. She found her niche when she transitioned to veterinary medicine and it allowed her to marry her love of team building with her love for animals and the human-animal bond. Adrienne is credentialed both as a CVPM (Certified Veterinary Practice Manager) as well as an LVT (Licensed Veterinary Technician) in Texas. This diversified education and background allow her to address the needs of the practice, its clients, and patients, from both a business side as well as a medical one. She has a firm commitment to creating the best environment for clients and patients of the hospital as well as for the employees of the practice. She holds a strong belief in family and community and believes that no one should ever stop learning.

    Adrienne has lived in Houston for most of her life after living in Libya, Africa as a small child. When not busy with practice management, veterinary medicine, and her education, she enjoys time with family and friends.  She is the mother to three grown children and "Mimi" to her grandchildren.  She is also "mom" to her two pugs, Major and Daisy.
