Anastasia S. Karloutsos is a passionate advocate for education, school safety, and parental involvement. As a high school student, Anastasia founded a nonprofit to provide a safe after-school learning environment for underperforming, low-income elementary school children, for which she received the America’s Promise Award presented by Governor Jeb Bush and Ret. General Colin Powell in 2000.
A graduate of George Washington University (B.S., International Affairs) and Drexel University (M.B.A., Finance), Anastasia has had a storied career in education. She began her career as a community and public relations officer for the School District of Philadelphia, and was later appointed as the first chair of the Schools Subcommittee on the Southeastern Pennsylvania Counter Terrorism Task Force. She also served six years on the Board of HOPE Partnership for Education, a nonprofit school serving underprivileged, low performing students in 5th-8th grade in North Philadelphia.
In 2017, Karloutsos moved to Northern Virginia and continued her focus on Emergency Preparedness in schools, where she developed an Emergency Preparedness plan and senior level preparedness exercise with the University of the District of Columbia.
Today, Anastasia lives in McLean with her husband Michael and their four children, all of whom attend public schools in Fairfax County. She is active in her children’s schools, church and community, and can often be found with Michael at the local ball fields, indoor courts as well as choral concerts and theaters cheering on their children.
