Kristin Tracy, CPA

Financial Consultant

Kristin joined Matter’s St. Louis office as an analyst in 2018, bringing experience from several accounting internships and a role supporting advisors at Renaissance Financial. With a particular knack for tax planning, she quickly moved into her current position as financial consultant, and she enjoys collaborating with our client teams to serve Matter families across the country. Kristin also supports our family communication and education initiatives as a member of Matter’s culture & legacy committee.

Kristin received her BS in business administration and MS in accounting from St. Louis University, where she also played on the club tennis team. She is passionate about addressing mental health in children as an active member of the Haven Club, the young professionals group of Our Little Haven. The organization is committed to serving young people with complex needs, and Kristin enjoys supporting their work and volunteering at their fundraising galas and other social events. She is also on the board of a family foundation and helps determine its funding strategy and focus areas each year.

Physical activity is a priority for Kristin, and she always feels better and more productive when she can get some kind of exercise every day—whether it’s walking, running, strength training, boxing, or hitting a tennis or pickle ball. She also enjoys taking weekend trips with her sisters (she’s the eldest of five!), visiting family in her hometown of Quincy, Illinois, and sampling new restaurants in the St. Louis area.
