Director of Finance and Business Operations

Grace Lau

After getting my BS in Accounting from USC, I went through a few tax seasons in a CPA firm, and then decided that I wanted a switch from public accounting after getting my CPA license. l went to pursue the MBA degree. Since graduation with my MBA degree, I joined various companies in the private sector (Oracle/Sun Microsystems/Pepsi/Hitachi) in their Accounting/Financial Planning & Analysis areas.

After twenty plus years in the private sector, I wanted to try working in the non-profit sector, and found a home in VPSA at Stanford University since 2017.

Although my work is not front-facing with the students, I am with deep gratitude to be working with co-workers whose great mission is to support our students and our future leaders!
