Karen McNeil
Program Director

Karen was a military student herself: she served eight years in the U.S. Navy and began her graduate studies while still on active duty. While in the service, she was awarded a Joint Service Commendation medal for her work as an Arabic translator and was selected as Command Language Professional of the Year and NSA Military Professional of the Quarter. After her honorable discharge as an E-6 in 2011, she continued her studies, eventually earning a master's degree in Arabic from Georgetown University.
