Gabrielle Malina connects clients and decision makers with sound policy.

Combining her experience in policy research and development with her government relations work, Gabrielle Malina is an invaluable member of our lobbying team. Gabrielle’s prior work in the Vermont General Assembly’s Office of Legislative Council and in the Executive Branch brings added insight as she advises clients on the inner workings, structure and processes of the legislature and state government.


Prior to joining DRM, Gabrielle worked for Komline Consulting, LLC, gaining valuable experience and building important relationships in the government relations world. Her ability to take an enthusiastic deep dive into policy in any field, becoming proficient in that subject matter in short order and then being able to share her expertise has been the hallmark of her success. Her Master of Public Administration from the University of Vermont is put to good use in the field of government relations work and makes Gabrielle a great fit for DRM’s team in Montpelier.
