As the Finance and Contracts Manager of a $4 million nonprofit organization and with a background in Risk Management and Auditing, Gerly Adrien is prepared to bring her knowledge and experience with finance and business management to represent Everett in the Massachusetts State House. Her love for business and helping government started as an intern for the Department of Navy headquarters, where she was able to resolve issues and implement policies to help enhance the Office of the Inspector General. Candidate for State Representative Adrien plans to advocate for more state funding to help residents and various public services in Everett. As soon as she settles into her new office in the State House, Adrien will begin negotiating for next year’s budget, setting a priority for the needs of Everett residents. “We need more resources for our children, families, veterans and seniors,” Adrien said. “These people comprise the core of Everett and they need someone advocating for them in the State House. I am running for State Representative to give a voice to these residents – the individuals who give character to the city. With years of fiscal experience under my belt, I will fight to bring them the money and resources that they deserve.”
Adrien currently manages the day-to-day finances and operations for United South End Settlements, a $4 million nonprofit organization in Boston that strives to improve the education, health, safety and economic security of communities around the Commonwealth for children, individuals, families and seniors. In this position Adrien deals directly with the state budget and determines how to allot state funds so that the organization is able to run smoothly and serve the community effectively. Not only is she comfortable managing city, state and federal funding, Adrien is experienced in risk management and auditing. She oversaw the budget and supervised day-to-day operations as the Campaign Manager for Philadelphia City Councillor-at-Large Isaiah Thomas, in which she raised $275,000. She also served for three years as a Risk Management and Business Analyst for JP Morgan Chase in New York and Boston. As an employee for one of the country’s foremost investment banks, Adrien became closely familiar with the inner workings of large and successful financial institutions.
