Jocelyn is a science nerd by day, craft nerd by night. She (unsurprisingly) has worked most of her career in academic research – helping maternity care, population health and community based researchers keep their projects on track and their sanity intact. She has also worked for years with the Adolescent Care program at BC Children’s Hospital, working with young people with chronic disease, promoting self advocacy and improving care for young people transitioning to the adult healthcare system. Jocelyn had a long but not so illustrious career in wheelchair basketball, ending as an alternate to Canada’s National team. More recently, Jocelyn worked at ICORD, helping SCI researchers find the funding they need to do their research. She also worked with the Rick Hansen Institute as their Consumer Engagement Lead – a fancy title for “talking with people with SCI about research.”
At SCI BC, Jocelyn’s worlds collide as Manager of the BC SCI Resource Centre, making sure that all of our peers have the information they need at all stages of life after SCI and helping to turn evidence into useful, engaging resources for our members. At work, Jocelyn makes sure SCI BC’s Infoline rockstars Bert and Heather have whatever they need to keep the information flowing for the more than 300 people who call each month.
At home, you’ll most often find her sewing, knitting, paddling, or podcasting with her husband, Tod.
