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 for her family’s security business.

EDUCATION AND EXTRACURRICULAR

A Seattle native, Karen attended Lakeside School before heading to Stanford, where she graduated with a BA in Economics. She earned her CPA while at Deloitte Touche LA/Newport Beach. After a year and a half backpacking around the world, the Pacific Northwest beckoned her home. “I love the mountains, the forests and the water – Puget Sound to all the lakes to even the rain!” She volunteers for a variety of environmental and educational causes and 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 allowed our small corner of the planet to have a big impact.”
