Elisabeth JoungElisabeth Joung graduated from Yale University with a BA in Economics and Political Science in 1983. After graduating, she worked for the Rockefeller Family Office working with individual and trust accounts largely invested in public market equities. She then attended Dartmouth’s Tuck Business School, graduating in 1987. She and Chansoo met at Tuck, and after graduation, moved to New York to begin work. Elisabeth worked at CS/First Boston in corporate finance (Real Estate and Utility groups) from 1987 until 1994.

She then took a sabbatical while she and Chansoo moved to London for a year. When they relocated back to Connecticut, Elisabeth focused on raising their three children. She spent some of these years serving on several non profit boards (YWCA of Greenwich, Garden Education Center and Hortulus). When their youngest child went to college, Elisabeth and Chansoo relocated to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. There Elisabeth has served on the Teton County Library Foundation Board, Jackson Hole Community Foundation Grants Committee, teaches skiing at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, written a cookbook and learned to play bridge. She wanted to formalize her long standing interest in parenting education, family dynamics and child development. Between 2019 and 2021, she completed a certification in Parent Education in the Department of Family Social Science at the University of Minnesota.

In her spare time, Elisabeth enjoys traveling to visit their three children, spending summers at the beach or exploring the nearby national parks by horseback, kayak or hiking. Her next goal is to climb the Grand Teton.
