About Me

I’m the CEO of Angelique Adams Media Solutions, LLC, a leadership coaching and training consultancy for scientists and engineers. I’m also a lecturer at the MIT Sloan School of Management, and an Entrepreneur in Residence at the University of Tennessee’s Tickle College of Engineering. In 2022, I was named to the list of Top Ten Most Influential People in Leadership Consulting by CIO Views Magazine.

I’m an engineer and former corporate executive with 25 years of experience in operations, strategy, and innovation. After managing multimillion-dollar innovation portfolios and leading hundreds of scientists and engineers worldwide, I discovered my true passion is developing people, not products. 

In 2021, I started Angelique Adams Media Solutions, LLC, which published two Amazon #1 career guides for women in male-dominated industries. In 2022, my company launched the Technical Experts Leadership Accelerator, a global virtual training, coaching, and community platform helping advanced-degree scientists and engineers become influential leaders.

I live in Knoxville with my husband and 2 children. I serve on the board of several local nonprofits and volunteer as a mentor to entrepreneurs. I have a Ph.D. from Penn State and an MBA from MIT.
