About Adrienne:

Adrienne Zetterberg is the director of business development at ECHO Cottages Ltd., an elder housing solution that provides downsized living for older adults in architecturally designed homes, offering the warmth of traditional characteristics with accessible features.  


A native of New York State’s Hudson Valley, Adrienne spent 15 years traveling the country as a professional ballet dancer before resettling in her home state to work as a certified yoga instructor.

 In 2012 Adrienne, who also is an accomplished finish carpenter, joined Bob Novak of ECHO Cottages in Hopewell Junction, NY, where she shares with others the company’s stellar home solutions for older adults, each according to an individual or couple’s needs.  

As Adrienne does with her senior clients and their families, she shares her compassion and understanding with others, including animals in need through volunteer work at her local SPCA and other animal shelters.


Adrienne studied real estate at Chicago’s Kaplan University and dance at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts.

Her varied career includes several years as a professional ballet dancer and ownership of a real estate brokerage in Colorado.  Adrienne also holds certifications in Ombudsman and Yoga instruction, which she’s been teaching since 2000, including at New York centers: Ashtanga Yoga of New Paltz in New Paltz, Yoga Pause in Stanfordville, Rocking Horse Ranch in Highland, plus Pulse Cycle and Fitness in Millbrook.

In Her Words:

I feel great when I’m doing what I love, whether I’m in the company of good people (like Bob Novak of ECHO Cottages!) or spending time centering on myself. Really, who doesn’t?

The quiet of alone time rejuvenates my soul, yet exploring new places and stretching my reach do, too. One of my greatest joys is finding ways to open doors for others, whether it’s through a yoga class that I’m teaching or by connecting people with deserving pets or providing great living options for seniors to live happy and healthy lives through their Golden Years with ECHO Cottages.

 It’s just so much fun to see how people shine when they’re where they want to be, doing what they love, with the people they adore around them.
