Karrie began her career working with foster children, witnessing firsthand how state policy can affect the lives of vulnerable children, from a lack of resources to discrimination against gay adoptive parents.
She volunteered as a sexual assault counselor and served as the Board President of her county’s crisis counseling organization. After moving to Northern Virginia, Karrie became the Communications Director for Shared Hope International, a non-profit dedicated to ending sex trafficking.
After leaving Shared Hope to focus on raising her family, Karrie has since started her own small consulting firm and serves as chair to the Fairfax County Citizen Corps Council, which focuses on emergency preparedness. She was also appointed to the Fairfax County Library Board of Trustees, where she currently serves as Chair.
Karrie continues to volunteer and do pro bono work, notably with Voices for Vaccines, a parent-driven organization which provides parents clear, science-based information about vaccines and vaccine-preventable disease.
