She trained under Donna Patzius-Hill and attended summer intensives on scholarship with Atlanta Ballet, Ballet West, and American Ballet Theatre.

Some of Jocelyn’s favorite roles with Dayton Ballet have included Juliet in Septime Webre’s Romeo and Juliet, Myrtle in Ron Cunningham’s The Great Gatsby, Sugar Plum Fairy and Arabian in Karen Russo Burke’s The Nutcracker, and Lilith in Burke’s Dracula: Bloodlines. She has also enjoyed dancing in many contemporary works by choreographers including Gina Patterson, Amy Seiwert, Stephen Mills, Jessica Lang, and Jiří Kylián.
