Karen focuses on Stripes’ consumer and consumer internet investments. She works closely with a number of Stripes’ portfolio companies, partnering on strategy and business development initiatives, and assisting at the board level.

Karen grew up in Canada and now lives in Tribeca with her husband and her two daughters, Katie and Anna. Karen is an avid cyclist, having biked across the United States just before joining Stripes. She loves every minute she spends with her family and enjoys pretty much everything outdoors (running, hiking, relaxing, whatever). She’ll never turn down a walk alongside New York’s Hudson River, even if it’s in the middle of winter – she does have Canadian blood after all.
