"As a local community leader and a mom, I'm dedicated to bringing innovative economic growth, world-class education, and healthcare for all to Northern Virginia.”
Karrie Delaney has always been committed to strengthening the community for everyone.
The daughter of a U.S. Army veteran, Karrie saw firsthand the importance of supporting our returning heroes. Her dad came home from Korea in the late 1950’s to get his GED and a good-paying job in a VA Hospital.
After college, Delegate Karrie Delaney worked at a group home for foster children, helping kids move out into the world with the life skills they needed to succeed. She saw firsthand how state policy can affect the lives of vulnerable children. Karrie then volunteered as a sexual assault counselor and became Board President of her county’s sexual assault crisis organization.
After moving to Northern Virginia with her husband Patrick to start their family, Karrie became the Communications Director for Shared Hope International—a non-profit dedicated to ending sex trafficking. There, she took her community engagement to new levels, working with local communities and international NGOs to end the brutal abuse of women around the globe.
After leaving Shared Hope to focus on raising her family, Karrie has since started her own small consulting firm and gotten even more involved in local Fairfax issue. She served as an appointed member, and then chair, of the Fairfax County Citizen Corps Council, which focuses on emergency preparedness and community resiliency. She was also appointed to, and then elected chair of the Fairfax County Library Board of Trustees.
Since flipping her seat from red to blue in 2017, Delegate Karrie Delaney has been a voice for Virginia's most vulnerable citizens in Richmond. She's carried successful, bipartisan legislation to protect survivors of abuse and to combat human trafficking. She voted to expand affordable healthcare access to families across the Commonwealth, cap the cost of insulin, and ended surprise medical billing. Karrie also worked hard during the pandemic to deliver much needed relief to her constituents and make sure families could put food on the table.
