With our top leadership structure in place we can now move forward in earnest on my agenda.”

Karen Cook formerly served as Director of the Legal Studies Institute at Anne Arundel Community College and was a member of the County Executive’s Evaluation Team. She holds a law degree from California Western School of Law and has served as federal compliance officer for the college since 2007.
