Jocelyn is an avid mountain biker, snowboarder, surfer, and yogi – an all around adrenaline adventure junkie with Aloha spirit! She grew up in Vancouver, Canada and spent a few spring breaks in Waikiki, Hawaii where she learned to surf. From there, she was hooked – always excited to ride the waves and feel the Aloha spirit again!
Over the years, Jocelyn had a few setbacks (job layoffs, breakup, health issue, death in family) that lead to depression, but she did yoga, meditation and yoga therapy to overcome it. During that time, Jocelyn still wanted to follow her dreams. She left her energy conservation program marketing job and moved to the Gold Coast, Australia to surf, meet people from around the world, and achieve her Master of Business Administration (MBA). While there, she joined drop-in surfing lessons every weekend at Broadbeach Surf School where she caught her first green wave! After her MBA, she travelled – saw Ayers Rock, dove in the Great Barrier Reef, hiked in Tasmania, and surfed in Bali and Byron Bay. After a year, she returned to Vancouver and to her marketing job, but was still itching to travel and surf. With her vacation time, Jocelyn did more surfing yoga retreats in Hawaii, Mexico, California, Costa Rica and Tofino plus hiked Machu Picchu in Peru, and explored Southeast Asia.
Coupled with her marketing experience of over 15 years and passion for marketing, Jocelyn started her own marketing business for more freedom and flexibility. She loves helping companies grow their business or launch products/campaigns through marketing. Jocelyn has a Bachelor of Human Kinetics, Sports Management from the University of British Columbia, MBA from Bond University in Australia, Honours Certificate in Digital Marketing and Digital Strategy from the Canadian Marketing Association and a 200hr Level Yoga Teacher Certificate.
Jocelyn believes in the power of manifestation and having a positive mindset. She envisioned working with some inspirational women and for an amazing health, wellness and travel community and it came true! While on the SwellBliss Team, she gets to share her Aloha spirit and inspire people to connect to their true self and seek a life full of bliss, health, and happiness. She’s also a SwellWomen Maui and Swellness Where’s the Bliss and Swell360 alumni – email and ask her about these anytime!
Now Jocelyn lives in Whistler, Canada where she enjoys playing in the forest, mountains and lakes, but jets off to surf as much as she can. Jocelyn believes that yoga and surfing transformed her life – she learned to trust the process and gained the mindset that you can do anything.
