​Adrienne retired from the Army in May 2023. For nearly 24 years she served as a Food Inspector and Food Safety Officer in the Veterinary Corps. She grew up as a dancer and musician, naturally inheriting a passion and skill from her father who too was a Soldier but also a musician, aerobics instructor, and choreographer of a dance group called "Pierre’s Dance Ensemble." She followed in her father’s footsteps and started college as a Music Education major. 

In 2003, she changed her major from Music Education to Finance and Accounting. Since then, she’s been passionate about sharing personal finance tips with whomever she encounters, providing financial advice on saving and investing to her community and to small business owners.

Adrienne never lost her love for teaching music and saw a need to provide access to music lessons to those who couldn't afford them. Simultaneously, she started dancing in church and became a choreographer for youth and adult groups. Over the years, she’s worked with many organizations either substituting for dance lessons or teaching basic finance principles and investing. She has an uncanny love for teaching and wants to impart all she knows on whomever will listen.

She is an Xtreme Hip Hop Step Instructor, the Portfolio Manager of Onyx Investment Club, a Sister of Tau Beta Sigma National Honorary Band Sorority, Inc., and a Sister of Untouchable Phi.

Together they co-parent this beauty, Ras Amicah Harmon, because they understand the power in raising her as a united front, with a foundation set in love. She's named after Haile Selassie, who was the first Emperor of Ethiopia. His real name was Tafari, to which they called Ras-Tafari, meaning the first or head-of.
