O2O Program Coordinator | National Capital Region

Karen Francis

Karen Francis is the Program Coordinator for the National Capital Region (NCR), which covers Northern Virginia, Maryland and DC.

As a military spouse, both AD, Guard and Reserves, she has worked within the military community for many years. With a Bachelors from UMUC in Psychology, a Masters in Psychology from Capella, she also studied for and received her GCDF (Global Career Development Facilitator) and CCSP (Certified Career Services Provider). Karen has worked with transitioning servicemembers (including her own son and her spouse), veterans, and particularly with military spouses on a variety of issues.

Volunteering within the community led to work both in the suicide prevention/counseling sphere and employment assistance. Realizing that a foundation of a well paid, interesting, and fulfilling career can assist the entire family in transition, she chose to specialize in employment and career assistance; especially with military and veteran spouses.

“Getting a job is one thing, finding a career takes more work, more training and someone to help you find the way”.
