“As a local community leader and a mom, I'm dedicated to bringing innovative economic growth, world class education, and health care for all to Northern Virginia.”
– Karrie Delaney
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, she worked at a group home for foster children, helping kids move out into the world with real life skills. She saw firsthand how state policy can affect the lives of vulnerable children.
Karrie also volunteered as a sexual assault counselor and became Board President of her county’s crisis counseling organization, after being appointed and serving on the West Melbourne City Council. Because of her deep involvement in the community and working with people at a crossroads in their life, she was hired by a Republican States Attorney’s office to work with juvenile offenders, teaching them life skills and how to make restitution to their victims.
After moving to Northern Virginia, 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 issues. Republican County Supervisor Michael Frey appointed Karrie to be a member and later a 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.
Now Karrie is running to represent the people of Virginia’s 67th District; to stand up for our Northern Virginia values, put aside the political games, and bring about real solutions for our community.
Karrie and her husband, Patrick, met in college and have been together ever since. They live in Fairfax and are the proud parents of Kaitlyn and Ethan.
