Jocelyn grew up in Puyallup with parades, fair scones and amazing educational experiences being present in her life. Math programs, honor choir, AVID and amazing educational role models were major contributors to her pursuing college.

Jocelyn is a first-generation Mexican-American citizen who speaks fluent Spanish and was the first in her family to pursue a bachelor’s degree. Graduating in 2018 with a Bachelor’s in Social Work, she has worked as a family advocate in a pre-school setting; as well as a substance abuse counselor, providing individual and group therapy. She also has experience as a Behavioral Health Case Manager.

Jocelyn believes her role offers her an amazing op[ortunity to work directly in schools, growing her knowledge about the education system while providing support to kids and making sure they do not get left behind to fend for themselves.

“I am also excited to form amazing partnerships within the community, to create and provide a village for students,” says Rodriguez.
