Karrie started working at a group home for foster children - an experience that opened her eyes in many ways, including a lesson in how policy decisions can either serve or fail our most vulnerable. Later, as a crisis counselor, Karrie stood by women who were assaulted and employed community engagement to raise awareness of the abuse of women around the world. When Karrie became a mother, she turned her focus towards local issues as an appointee to Gov. McAuliffe's Virginia Commission on Youth, as well as Chair of both the Fairfax County Citizens Corps Council and the Fairfax County Library Board of Trustees.
