Ryan Combs - Financial Controller
Ryan first came to TVRC in 1997 to work as a cabin counselor. After graduating from Vanderbilt University with an economics major and philosophy minor, Ryan joined Merrill Lynch as a private client advisor before the lure of the west drew him back to Jackson Hole. In 2005, Ryan rejoined the TVRC family for his first summer on the new ranch working as trips coordinator. Following that summer, Ryan went to work for Aman Resorts in Jackson, where he worked as Assistant Financial Controller. While there, he assisted in the management of the budget, weekly audits, payroll, and was a key player on the team that helped a financially struggling Amangani Resort become an economically sustainable hotel. Ryan enjoys the Jackson Hole lifestyle with his wife Sue and daughter Caitlin.

Elizabeth King - Development Director
Elizabeth is originally from Boston, MA and a TVRC alum (Trailblazer 1986). Her summers in the Tetons markedly shaped her years after camp. She was a geology major from Carleton College in 1994 and PhD from the University of Wisconsin in 2001. Elizabeth then spent seven years on the Geology faculty at Illinois State University. Despite living in the Midwest, Geology brought her west to Idaho, Nevada, and Utah for research, as well as South Dakota and eastern Wyoming for teaching field camp. In 2003, she rediscovered Jackson Hole on her first trip since leaving TVRC. Jackson became her sole vacation destination, summer and winter. Eventually vacation time wasn’t enough, so in 2007, she traded the corn fields for the mountains and decided to move full time to Jackson. Elizabeth joined the TVRC staff in 2009. She is thrilled to live here with her husband, Andy, and three boys, Colby, David, and Bradford, exploring all the mountains have to offer.

Jacqueline Barrett - Operations Director
Jackie started off her TVRC career as a Rough Rider in 2001. She grew up in Needham, MA, just outside of Boston. After graduating from St. Lawrence University in 2010, Jacqueline moved out West to spend the summer at TVRC. Jackie had an amazing summer at the ranch, so she packed up her stuff and moved to Jackson to join the TVRC team full time. At St. Lawrence, Jacqueline was an Art History major and played for the women’s varsity squash team for four years. She is sad to hang up the squash racket but excited to bring out her skis for the winter. Jackie is excited to be living in Jackson with all the seasonal TVRC staff and enjoying the beautiful weather.
