Welcome Jocelyn

June 15, 2011

We are pleased to welcome the newest member of the PuSh Festival team,  Interim Development Manager Jocelyn Macdougall. Jocelyn will be taking on the role of Interim Development Manager while our current Development Manger, Bobbi Parker, is on maternity leave.  We wish Bobbi all the best in her new role as a mum!

Jocelyn Macdougall approaches development like she approaches everything else in life: with passion! Jocelyn believes that some of the most critical perspectives on the ways we live in community, both locally and globally, are produced in the non-profit sector. She feels honoured to work with the donors who fuel the creativity and energy that change the world.

Jocelyn holds a Bachelor of Arts and Science from McMaster University and an MA in Communications and Culture from the University of Calgary. After three years at a top executive recruiting firm, Jocelyn decided to try the non-profit sector, and she has never looked back. Before coming to PuSh, Jocelyn had the privilege of building the development and communications department for Focus Foundation of BC, which runs programs for youth who fall through the cracks of traditional educational systems in BC.

The arts have always been a key element of Jocelyn’s existence; she has had tons o’fun with theatre and music since she was wee, and continues to perform regularly with Vancouver’s Broadway Chorus and the North Short Chamber Orchestra. She is thrilled and excited to now be joining the amazing team at PuSh, and looks forward to pushing her own personal, professional and artistic boundaries further than she ever thought possible.

Welcome Jocelyn!
