Jocelyn was raised in a small sunny town on the BC coast. Her parents exposed her early on to diverse cultures and ecosystems which led to her passion of ecology and community building. After gaining an undergraduate degree in biology at UBC she travelled to Bolivia, SA where she co-founded a volunteer program working with a local village to co-create health education and infrastructure projects. Her passion for creating strong community ties, innovative educational tools and infrastructure around safe drinking water was integral to the success and sustainability of the project. This time was one of transformation and lit the path to working on many more community projects with the YMCA, Envirothon, Be the Change Earth Alliance and Canadians Advocating Political Participation (CAPP). She currently works as a gift planner with the non-profit legal society Ecojustice and has enjoyed event planning as part of this role. Her goal for Next Up is to shape her 5 year plan/vision and gain experience in facilitation and workshop creation.
