Jocelyn is the Associate Director of PlaceMatters. She focuses on research and sharing best practices and lessons learned through publications, panels, and partnerships, while also managing some of PlaceMatters on-the-ground projects. Through her research and projects, she works to promote environmental, economic, and social sustainability within the context of informed, inclusive decisions. She is particularly interested in how best to incorporate and communicate sustainability concepts and models within a traditional planning context, and in reaching typically under-served populations.
Jocelyn was the Director of the Sustainable Solutions Group from 2008 to 2012, heading many of PlaceMatters' community and regional decision-making processes. Her work at PlaceMatters has also focused on effective outreach and communications strategies, and she edited Planning & Technology Today, the publication of the American Planning Association Technology Division, from 2006 to 2009.
Prior to joining PlaceMatters, Jocelyn was Program Associate for the Rocky Mountain Office of the Orton Family Foundation, where her work focused primarily on innovative decision support tools and project management. Jocelyn has a Master's Degree in Environmental Management from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies and a BA in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology with a Certificate in Environmental Studies from Princeton University.
