Elizabeth Russell-Jones balances her time between teaching flute in her home studio and in the role of Welcome Coordinator for the new family initiative she founded at St. John of the Cross in 2012.
Elizabeth graduated from DePaul University with a Bachelor of Science and started her career in marketing working in a breadth of industries from environmental resource engineering to high tech. Her career took her to Silicon Valley where she was immersed in emerging technology at the heart of the industry for most of her career.
When she shifted her focus to raising a family she chose to return to her childhood neighborhood, Western Springs. Since returning to her hometown, she has become involved in volunteering at St. John of the Cross, serving on the Parish Advisory Council and numerous school committees and functions throughout the years.
In her free time she enjoys spin classes, going to the symphony, summers in Lake Geneva and traveling internationally with her daughter and husband.
