About

Welcome! My name is Adrienne Kerrigan and I bring a diverse array of skills to all my projects. From slinging coffee as a barista to developing an online retail website, my journey has focused on helping small local businesses with their goals. I specialize in identifying inefficiencies and problems, then finding creative solutions–often on a shoestring budget.

I’m a naturally innovative and creative problem solver. I live in a growth mindset: each step of my journey provides new skills, opportunities, and connections.

I live on 5 acres in Rochester, WA, with my husband and daughter (7), where I’m designing and growing a food forest.

Mission

I’m on a mission to expand the reach of a local business, through elevated packaging design, marketing presence, and increased audience. My coffee industry background and skills in botanical illustration make me uniquely suited to the specialty plant, food, and retail industries.
