Meet Karen

Karen Baker embodies unwavering commitment and a life devoted to public service. Born and raised in a humble Midwestern town, Karen's journey from a small-town girl to a beacon of justice and care embodies the true spirit of fighting against the odds. A graduate of William Smith College with a degree in comparative religion and a J.D. from Catholic University Law School, Karen's career spans over three decades of commendable service. As a trial lawyer for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, she championed the rights of those facing discrimination based on sex, race, and age. Her journey didn't stop there; she further served as an Administrative Law Judge for the Social Security Administration, touching lives for 17 years.


Karen's life story is one of unparalleled empathy and strength. Raising her son Sean as a single mother for 15 years, Karen understands the struggles of everyday Americans. Her commitment extended beyond the courtroom to the heart of healthcare, where, after going to nursing school, she served as a registered nurse in a rural hospital's intensive care unit. Karen's personal life, marked by caring for her husband Richard through his battle with Lewy body Dementia and her own challenges, speaks volumes of her resilience. Today, Karen stands as a fighter for Southwest Virginia, pledging to secure good jobs and a strong economy, ensure access to affordable housing, and support accessible childcare. Her campaign is more than a candidacy; it's a continuation of a lifetime of service.
