Vivian formally served as the Project Manager & Senior Analyst for the Army Spouse Employment Partnership (ASEP) providing strategic direction and leadership from initial concept throughout program development, successfully translating a client need into a successful delivery model. ASEP was an initiative born out of the Office of the Chief of Staff of the Army that facilitated national partnerships between Fortune 500 Corporations and the United States Army to increase Military Spouse employment. The Department of Defense (DoD) leveraged the successful partnerships created under the Army Spouse Employment Partnership by expanding the program to Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force spouses. The expanded program -- the Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP) -- officially launched in June 2011 during a ceremony at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
Dr. Carrasco also served as the Manager of Business and Industry Partnerships for WORKFORCE ONE at the Greater Richmond Chamber of Commerce. In this position she managed all of the activities of the Industry Action Groups (IAG) within WORKFORCE ONE, which included Construction and Trades, Technology, Manufacturing and Health Care.
