Through her work with clients, she creates event experiences that weave seamlessly into their brand and client connections. Jocelyn runs her own series of events called Elevate, in which she creates opportunities for real connection and education on significant world issues through her Impact Events, including human trafficking and domestic violence. Jocelyn is proud to work closely with WIN House, a domestic violence shelter in Edmonton, as the chair of their Ambassador Program, where she educates, advocates, and raises awareness on the work they do within the community. In 2020, Jocelyn was featured as a TEDx speaker where she spoke passionately about human trafficking in our country. Her heart lays in giving back to the community, working with people who are making an impact, and creating real relationships. A wife, a momma, a puppy momma, friend, daughter, sister, and auntie, relationships are what matter most to her.
