FAB Podcast host Kristen Reenders met this month’s guest Jocelyn Verveldes six years ago when they both played volleyball at Central Michigan University. Jocelyn is currently the Assistant Director of Strategic Communications for Penn State’s Athletic Department. On this episode we hear about Jocelyn’s career journey and why she choose this path, the influences and decisions that led her to strategic communications. We find out what a day is like, is there a regular routine? We also hear about her different experiences in the schools and her roles, and some of the advantages or disadvantages. Jocelyn offers advice to young women who are planning a career in sports administration, and also shares some information that she wished she would have known at the start of her career. Jocelyn was featured in FAB’s March newsletter.
