Adrienne Meisel's professional life bridged two careers, the first in education and the second in financial services. Career experiences in education included teaching and supervising programs for hearing impaired students and administering federal grant programs for low-incident, handicapped children. Financial services exposed her to the domains of commercial lending and working with high net worth individuals and families. After 25 years with First Chicago and its successor organizations, she retired as a Client Advisor in JP Morgan's Private Client Services group. During the past 17 years she has served as a director and is currently Board President of the Center On Deafness, an organization that provides educational, vocational and therapeutic services to persons who are deaf or hard of hearing and their families. For the past seven years she has served as a director of Jewish Vocational Service where she is also the current Board President. In her discretionary time she enjoys hiking, camping, sea kayaking, bicycling and both domestic and foreign travel.
