Bio

Ms. Adonis is currently Principal Consultant of a Corporate Social Responsibility and Government Relations firm and National Spokesperson for a national youth nonprofit educating, training, and inspiring youth to become the next generation of local, state, and national leaders. 

Ms. Adonis has previous experience in U.S. Policy and Administration, Private International Law (specifically international commercial and investment arbitration), Corporate Social Responsibility, and Community Economic Development. 

Notably, Ms. Adonis was invited for a professional experience with the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC), one of the leading arbitration institutions in the world.

Ms. Adonis is an innovator and change-agent with a proven track record of ten years of serving as a local, state, and national leader representing the needs and concerns of her respective constituents, creating and implementing programming, affecting change through design and execution of policy, and successfully operating and managing nonprofits. 

Ms. Adonis' passion is today's youth. She has provided direct-client services to over 500 misdemeanant youth and affiliated organizations and associations, discovering, developing and implementing practices that narrow the achievement gap; eradicating barriers impeding access to health care for medically underserved children; and increasing rehabilitation, prevention and retention for juveniles in the juvenile justice system, eliminating retributive practices. 

When Ms. Adonis is not advocating for youth, she's inspiring and uplifting others to reach their full potential. "Us Keeps Us" is her life motto because she truly believes that 'united we stand, divided we fall' and that it is truly up to "we the people" to be the change we want to see.

In her spare time, Ms. Adonis enjoys planning weddings and conferences, and engaging in youth empowerment and corporate speaking engagements
