Jocelyn manages the Open Culture Program, overseeing projects, logistics, and communications that support the Open Culture community.
Before CC, Jocelyn worked at The New York Public Library for over five years, first as a Special Projects Manager in the President’s Office, and later as a Program Manager for their Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Access team. This work helped her cultivate a passion for furthering equitable policies and practices, collaborative project management, and supporting the free exchange of knowledge and culture.
She received her Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology from Barnard College and holds a Masters in Archaeology of Egypt and the Ancient Near East from University College London, with a cross-disciplinary dissertation titled: ‘Early Queenship and Forms of Feminine Power in Ancient Egypt’.
When not she’s not working, Jocelyn can be found in yoga class, reading about history, or dancing at one of her favorite concert venues. Jocelyn is based in Brooklyn, New York.
