Karissa joined our Denver team in 2020. Her interest in working with complex families, combined with a strong accounting and corporate finance background, make Karissa a great fit for Matter. A whiz at financial reporting and navigating tax challenges, Karissa is particularly passionate about impact investing. She enjoys reading studies and articles to stay current in the topic and enjoys delving into its connection to international economic development.
A graduate of Colorado Christian University, Karissa earned her BS In accounting and business administration with a minor in international business, and she was a flautist in CCU’s symphonic band. She is currently studying for her CPA license and looks forward to adding more tax knowledge to her portfolio of skills.
A mountain girl at heart, Karissa loves to spend summer and fall weekends in the mountains, backpacking with friends or fly fishing with her dad. Being outdoors helps her relax and recharge and gives her a chance to appreciate the many beautiful and wild places in her home state. She also enjoys relaxing with family, playing board games, and practicing her golf swing.
