Gracie managed to avoid the fintech craze while living in the Bay Area, but things eventually caught up with her. While she had a knack for checking Google Finance daily in elementary school, it took a bit (10+ years) for her to professionalize such habits. As a Partner based out of Foundation’s New York office, Gracie focuses on banking, embedded payments and vertical software. Prior to joining Foundation, Gracie helped lead the consumer fintech practice at Stripes, focusing on global opportunities and sourcing the firm’s first investment in LatAm.
Gracie earned her bachelor’s in Symbolic Systems, graduating with Distinction from Stanford. She is the proud dog mother of a French Bulldog, Misha, who prefers to roll around on the sidewalks rather than actually walk on them.
