Adrienne Kleinman

Punch-In Consultant


Adriene Kleinman has been part of Punch-In for nearly five years. She has contributed by creating content, editing existing content, and facilitating the Punch-In Employment Course as a course moderator. Her perspective is unique in that she is in a motorized wheelchair and has approached the educational and employment world in a different way than her ambulatory peers. She has chronicled her experiences in over 50 blog entries highlighting her anecdotes on academia, on her career, and other pertinent workplace topics. When she is not actively participating with Punch-In, she is completing freelance writing projects and working at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities in their concert venues. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Studies in Cinema & Media Culture from there as well. One day she hopes to create a cinematic masterpiece that will tickle the souls of many.
