A. Adams is an editor on the APA Style team. She has an educational background in print journalism and English (composition/professional writing) and was a writing instructor at various colleges and universities in Tennessee for nearly 12 years before joining APA in June 2019. During her teaching days, she taught APA Style frequently in her technical writing courses—a skill that was put to good use in her editing of the seventh edition of the Publication Manual.
Outside of the APA walls, she is a great big sister, is an unashamed fan-fiction junkie, loves a good Asian drama (e.g., It Started With a Kiss [ISWAK]—any version, Strong Woman Do Bong Soon [yes, SKY Castle, too], General and I, and a few Thai lakorns that can’t all be named here), really loves tennis (#Serena24iscoming), is a proud BTS ARMY (so she knows good music), and has perhaps an unhealthy love for egg rolls and lo mein. If there were five words to describe who she really is, they would be lyrics from BTS’s RM’s (Kim Nam Joon) song “Trivia: Love”: “I live, so I love.”
