New York Trend NYC | Emmy-Nominated TV Producer, Connects Information for Patients through Storytelling after Life-Changing Diagnosis
Adrienne Nicole, Emmy-nominated producer, 2018 Telly Award recipient, and CEO, for Adrienne Nicole Productions (ANP) (http://producedbyanp.com) is the leader in digital commercials for healthcare and multi-cultural curated stories. “We get it right for our clients which include pharmaceutical brands, foundations, government agencies, and entertainment companies. My company creates authentic and believable narratives that highlight the patient as a person first. As a TV producer, I can uniquely connect with the story because I am (also) a patient and know firsthand the challenges of dealing with a life-changing diagnosis,” says Adrienne. National Patient Awareness and Safety Week is recognized on March 10-16.
Adrienne Nicole faced a major decision several years ago and launched her own business to manage her career and her Lupus diagnosis. While in her last full-time position, stress on the job and at home triggered her first Lupus flare. After getting this life-changing diagnosis, she was faced with making a major career decision. Adrienne chose a better quality of life over her 9 to 5, but instead of giving up her craft, she pivoted and started her own business. “Behind the scenes, as a producer, I use my lupus diagnosis to bring sensitivity to the client and patient. The approach as the producer is to create a narrative to empower, and not alienate the brand or company. I created a path where I could fulfill my passion for producing accurate, informative and relatable video content for minorities and women, and manage my health at the same time,” says Adrienne Nicole.
Adrienne will participate in the upcoming BET-Glam Gap docu-series to discuss her journey as a lupus survivor, from finding the best doctor, financial burdens and wellness habits. This series will air on all of BET’s digital and social platforms.
Adrienne Nicole Productions was started in 2010. The powerhouse brand produces persuasive, genuine video content for a diverse clientele including Arthritis Foundation, Lupus Research Alliance, NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Cancer Expert Now, Novartis, Merck Pharmaceuticals, Walmart, McCann Advertising, TVOne, and more. She recently received the prestigious honor of being highlighted as a Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprise (MWBE) Small Business Success Story and is featured in the current MWBE campaign on media platforms around New York City.
Adrienne is a requested speaker for Lupus conferences, NYC Small Business Services, Black Health Matters, and available for engagements on healthcare, entrepreneurship and multi-cultural marketing. “As an advocate, and television/video producer, it is my job to bridge the gap between doctors, and patient care. When producing a story, I think about ways to deliver information across multiple-platforms to educate with knowledge and purpose. My goal is to tell a compelling story and ‘BE’ the voice for many by using my personal experience as a patient,” says Adrienne Nicole.
