About Us

About Angelique Adams, Ph.D., Founder

I am an engineer with over 20 years of experience in global manufacturing. I have expertise in operations, supply chain, strategy, and innovation. I currently work as director of research and development for a Fortune 500 metals company. I have a doctorate from Penn State and an M.B.A. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

I am married with two children. I like to cook with my kids and have family game nights. When I am not spending time with my family, I volunteer. I mentor startups at the Knoxville Entrepreneur Center. I help my alma mater as a member of the external advisory board for the Energy and Mineral Engineering department at Penn State. I am also on the Board of Directors of The Boys and Girls Club of the Tennessee Valley, where I serve as Vice Chair for Operations.

About Cynthia Adams, M.Ed., Head of Operations

I am an educator with over 20 years of experience in classroom instruction and curriculum development. I have expertise in program development for children with learning differences. As an Air Force daughter, an Army wife, and a Department of Defense elementary school teacher, I have a special passion for helping the families of service members. I have a Master’s Degree in Education from Fayetteville State University.

I live in North Carolina with my husband, Andre, and our tabby cat, Buddy. Now that I have retired, I am excited to work with my daughter on The Lady Visitor Project. I am so proud of what she has accomplished in her career especially given the challenges she faced being one of the only women at her work. I look forward to meeting more women like her and to helping to get their stories told.
