In a Nutshell

A CDC Certified Covid-19 Compliance Officer for the entertainment industry, Dr. Adrienne Unae Dozier, that’s me haha, is a dynamic actress who sings and dances as well as motivates crowds to do more and be better. As a toddler, I lost my father to divorce, and within months, my mother to medical malpractice. I’ve lived through many traumatic situations designed by the enemy to break an individual.

  1. Long-term public school and Sunday School bullying.
  2. Elementary school-aged inappropriate touch.
  3. College rape committed by the Minister of Music.
  4. Chronic low-income single-parenting.
  5. Dementia elder-caregiving. resulting in eldercare empty nest syndrome.
  6. Workplace racial and sexual harassment.
  7. Two sociopathic narcissists (SMH) guised as kind suitors and walking away from both.
  8. Nursing one of the narcissistic sociopaths back to health (AIDS with a T-cell count of 8) and subsequently running 1000+ miles away with around $500 to my name and a 532 credit score.
  9. Church and “friend” hurt.

Vowing to not submit to compassion fatigue, give up on myself or my faith, I lived in my car in NYC for a year. During that time, I purchased to a van (a Iemon – I was taken advantage of) and renovated it into a mobile home. Yep, I survived homelessness in freezing temperatures. Thennn the pandemic hit! Lordt have the mercy!!! While sleeping on a real friend’s couch during five months of the pandemic, I completed a doctorate in Education with a Human Performance Improvement specialization. All of this remarkable opportunity-filled life lived, they say I am thought-provokingly funny and beneficial to others’ personal development.

Education and Mission

So now I have two doctorate degrees; education and the other in ministry. I am an MBA who holds a Master’s degree in Ministry. My Bachelors degree is in dance. My multi-tiered skillset, has historically been intertwined with and deployed via performing art to enhance social, life, I am committed to assisting with a vocational training center, an English and computer training center, and a disposable sanitary napkin project in East Africa (Kenya) villages. From time to time, I present an immersive, cabaret-styled, comedic whodunit at the Broadway Comedy Club in New York City. The funny whodunit serves as a support for my Kenya mission work. My mission/vision is “Keep in mind The One as The One makes up the whole.”

Evidence of this fun fact is that my first career was as a film, television, dance, and musical theater performing artist who created a 501©3 girls-based arts organization and dance ministry. I helped and continue to serve in the arts via churches and faith-based organizations. Together, we employ dance and theatre to reach both members and non-members. 

Business Acumen

I’m a scripture-guided comedic performing and teaching artist who happens to be a business developer with organizational strengths that extend to strategic planning via appreciative inquiry, SWOT/SOAR analysis, content development, capital raise, action research, strategic implementation, and ROI analysis. Throughout my career, I helped numerous financially challenged as well as multi-million-dollar startups and ramp-ups go-to-market. Such has helped to stabilize and grow businesses, increase staff, and raise over $141,000,000.00. I have overseen monthly run rates above $684,000.00, all while creating comedic and uplifting content.

The Total Skillset Works Together Well

I enjoy the rehearsal and presentation process of film, television, and musical theater. I also enjoy the development processes of business. Therefore, I use my comedic timing and performing art to educate and improve lives to address social issues and norms that wreak havoc on our community-at-large. So, whether it is via performing art or traditional business development, I desire to serve in today’s morally turbulent and spiritually defunct times, persons young and old as we face an unprecedented loss of optimism and challenges of depression, powerlessness, poor impulse control, low self-esteem, and the like. I believe such negative behaviors lead to the strongholds of fear and that fear is the root of anger and violence. I use film, theatre, and dance as an anecdote, a balm, for the challenges mentioned above. I have found arts through a spiritually based framework to positively affect our children/youth, families, and the community. My passionate belief is film, episodic television, theatre and dance positively assist persons young and old and the mentally or physically imprisoned to improve social and life skills. The improvement helps individuals and organizations overcome negative impulses such that they are better able to manage anger and realize deliverance from the grips of fear.

I am a member of the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA), Actors Equity Association (AEA), and the International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI).
