Hi, I'm Adria

I am a transformation coach and life transition specialist. In my career and my life, I survived immense personal and professional change. I crashed and burned, fell into a depressed hole, and built my own ladder to light and happiness.

I was an award-winning singer/actor for half my life and I traveled the world. I became the spiritual center of every production. Only much later, did I realize my colleagues were not just writing notes about how much they enjoyed my  performances, they were thanking me for changing their lives.

When I left the stage, I became a life coach and I have been teaching at a university: singing, acting and life and career skills for the past 13 years. I am a certified national trainer for Time to Teach, a classroom management method.

I am a Reiki healer and a Certified Master Level Oracle Card Practitioner with master teacher Denise Linn. I am also certified as a Clutter Clearing Expert and founded and ran Organizer Bunny for eight years.

My purpose is to hold up a clear, loving mirror for you to see your own magnificence. Your thoughts and your words create your life, together we can build a stairway to happiness and a more fulfilling life.

  • A Lifetime on Stage

    Over 30 years of world travel and award-winning international performance has been such a gift to me. I am so grateful to have reveled in glorious music and loving colleagues. From Bizet’s opera Carmen to Family Guy, from Singapore to Kalamazoo, from countless one woman shows on Miami Beach to the Biblical seductress, Dalila in Australia, my life has been an incredible adventure.

    I played Dulcinea in The Man of La Mancha, and won the coveted Carbonell Award for Best Actress in a Musical. I received the Olson American Artist of the Year Award and Woman of the Year at the Spoleto Festival in Italy.

I cannot tell you how beautiful it is to see you continuing to move and inspire people as you have inspired me . . thank you for your vulnerability and for allowing me to see daily how real artistry is sought after, lived, breathed and ultimately released for others.  I continue to marvel at your graciousness in success.  And thank you for showing that it is more meaningful to raise others to the level to which you aspire than to stand on them as you reach higher.
