Erin Brady, Miss Connecticut USA 2013, is a graduate of Central Connecticut State University with a degree in Finance and a minor in Criminal Justice. She is a Financial Accountant for Prudential Retirement in Hartford, CT, where she works behind the scenes by running the controls that ensure every member of her team has performed their work correctly and efficiently. Erin plans to pursue an MBA in the near future and hopes to get involved with Pension Risk Transfers.
Erin was raised in a home heavily influenced by alcohol and substance abuse and she sadly remembers the lack of support and places to turn to for the children of addicts, such as her. She has since learned that more than half of adult addicts are children of alcoholics. It is her goal to help break the cycle of addiction as she plans to be an advocate for children of alcohol and substance abuse.
Miss Connecticut USA 2013 has helped with the Ferrari and Friends Concorso, which works closely with the Children's Medical Hospital and the "Make-A-Wish Foundation"; Susan G. Komen, Walk for The Cure events; and, Habitat for Humanity as her charities of choice.
