June is an assistant professor in the Department of Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Strategy at University of San Francisco. She is passionate about empowering the next generation through entrepreneurship education. Prior to pursuing a career in higher education, she worked at Morgan Stanley in New York City and in Hong Kong. June earned her AB in Mathematics and Economics from Bryn Mawr College and her MS and PhD in Management Science & Engineering from Stanford University. June enjoys hiking around the Bay Area in her spare time, and volunteers with several non-profits besides KACF-SF, including Simple Steps and Humane Society of Silicon Valley. She also has served as a board member of Bay Area K Group and Stanford Alumni Association.
It was during her time in New York City that June first discovered KACF. When she moved to the Bay Area, she was thrilled to learn that KACF-SF was about to launch, and she has been involved with KACF-SF since its inception in various capacities–as a volunteer at the Foundation’s launch event in 2014 and as a Community Grant Committee (CGC) member since 2016.
“I am very excited to be part of KACF-SF that promotes a culture of giving among Koreans and Korean Americans. KACF-SF serves as a platform not only to connect Korean community organizations but also to increase awareness of the needs and issues faced by Koreans and Korean Americans. I personally hope to see more of the next generation participate and join this platform.”
