Adrienna McDermott is the founder and CEO of Ava and The Bee, a marketing agency exclusively for wedding pros that builds connections with dream couples through inclusive, results-driven marketing. As a former bridal boutique owner, wedding planner, and florist with over a decade of experience in the industry, she knows exactly what wedding vendors struggle with when creating new and engaging content to grow their business. She is also the founder of The Creative VA Academy, a hub for creatives looking to hone their natural skills and establish a profitable creative virtual assistant business that earns them a full-time income doing what they love. When she's not running analytics reports, you can find her cuddling on the couch with her cat (the Bee in her business), walking her tripod black lab, or binging Netflix with her husband.
