More about Adrienne

Adrienne Wieder­-Finch graduated from Loyola Marymount University School of Film and Television class of 2015 and began pursuing a life of digital production and storytelling right away. Her breezy up ­and­ up YouTube channel – “Adrienne Finch” – is actually something of a production miracle. Generated in her spare time senior year of college between a part-time publicity internship at Warner Brothers Studios and a full course load, the weekly web videos have garnered an impressive audience, with a viewership of over two hundred thousand.
Adrienne FinchThe success of Finch’s channel follows hard on the heels of her other industry projects including her position as Head of Production for another wildly successful YouTube channel, “Just Like That,” as well as extended stints as On­-Air hostess for Awesomeness TV. She has also taught many of her own solo workshops on the ins and outs of creating YouTube content, as well as a Graduate level course at LMU titled “Writing For Digital Entertainment” just a year out of college herself.
Finch is a one­-woman production company: she performs in, shoots, and edits each of her videos, and invests substantial thought and time into audience research, promotional strategy, and small­ business entrepreneurship. The key to making a successful YouTube channel? Finch says it succinctly. “Being smart about your audience.” This includes intensive online data analysis as well as that intangible asset Finch has in spades: the imaginative capacity to predict what people want before they know they want it.

Leading With Hard Work and Heart Work with Shea Kidd Brown

It is so difficult to be mindful online these days. The apps and algorithms are just not designed to keep us in the present. And with so much curation necessary to create our idea of a “perfect profile,”  how can we make sure we are showing up in our digital accounts and profiles in a heartful way?

My guest today has mastered the art and science of being her whole self online. Whether she is weaving the values her grandmother taught her into presentations or sharing the intimacies of her adoption journey on social media, Dr. Shea Kidd Brown consistently stays true to her commitment to sharing both her personal and professional journeys openly and genuinely.

Shea has enjoyed a long career in college administration at a number of institutions of higher education in the southeastern region and now serves as the Vice President for Campus Life at Wake Forest University. 

In this episode, Shea discusses her perspective on storytelling, congruency and the importance of bringing humanity into digital spaces. We’ll also dive into how balancing personal and professional narratives is essential for creating an impactful online presence and how Shea uses these platforms to create active, mindful connections for her campus community.
