GO FOR IT. YOU’VE GOT BACKUP.

We are a team of thinkers, doers, optimists, pragmatists, strategists, cheerleaders and collaborators. And we work for you.

 

Karen Cameron

Controller

Karen supports the firm’s accounting, tax and audit functions. She is a CPA.

PAST LIVES

Since 2000, Karen has worked with numerous investment and venture capital firms doing back office consulting and contracting.  She currently works with both Madrona and Montlake Capital. Prior to 2000, she worked as HR director and then CFO in her family’s security business.

EDUCATION AND EXTRACURRICULAR

A Seattle native, Karen attended Lakeside High School before heading to Stanford, where she earned her BA in Economics. She earned her CPA while at Deloitte Touche LA/Newport Beach and then spent a year and a half backpacking around the world. The Pacific Northwest eventually beckoned her home.  “I love the mountains, the forests and the water, from Puget Sound to all the lakes to even the rain.” She is on the boards of Puget Soundkeeper Alliance (Treasurer), Stanford Club of Washington (Treasurer and Past President), and Bertschi School (Chair Audit Committee). She enjoys traveling, skiing and keeping up with her teenage daughter.

“There’s a ruggedness in the people who have chosen to settle in the Pacific Northwest—a fearless ingenuity and work ethic that I think has made our small corner of the planet have a big impact.”
