About Karin Shinego

I have been a Realtor in Northern Virginia since 2009, and have lived in the area more than 15 years. An attorney, I am a member of the Ohio Bar, inactive status. After graduating from the Georgetown University Law Center in 1991, I practiced law as a civilian before being commissioned in the US Navy as a Judge Advocate. I served on active duty for 8 years as a criminal prosecutor, deployed Staff Judge Advocate, as Staff Judge Advocate for three fast attack submarine squadrons, as an instructor at the Naval Justice School and adjunct instructor at the Naval War College, and as Assistant Foreign Policy Advisor at the US Southern Command. My husband is a retired submariner who now works as a defense contractor. Our children attend local public schools, and my two grown stepsons who are both serving their country on active duty, one in the Navy, the other in the Army. I made numerous moves while on active duty and as a Navy spouse, and understand the stresses involved. As a Realtor, I am a member of the National Association of Realtors, the Virginia Association of Realtors, and the Prince William Association of Realtors. I am a certified Military Relocation Professional and a Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource professional. A serious hobby breeder of golden retrievers, I train and show my dogs in the conformation and performance rings. I have produced American Grand Champions, agility, obedience, tracking, and nose work titled dogs. Others are active gun dogs or in training for the field disciplines. I am particularly proud of my pups who have become therapy dogs. *Ohio Bar, inactive
