Outside of the office
She speaks and writes widely on film criticism, social justice, and pop culture and is the co-author of History vs. Women, a middle-grade non-fiction work that aims to recover the stories of some of history’s most dynamic (and devilish) women. In her spare time, she is a writer and a very slow runner.
Education and service
Adams graduated with a Ph.D. in English Language and Literature from the University of Minnesota and is honored to work with groups aiming to reduce homelessness and food insecurity like L.A.-based coalition Hang Out Do Good.
