Passion and Commitment 

  • I have experienced the value of the Toastmasters program first-hand and believe in its importance in developing both powerful communicators and leaders.

  • I support members in completing their educational goals on the current path in the two year transition period.
  • I believe in mentoring others as I have been mentored by sharing my business leadership and management experience.

Jocelyn’s decades of leadership experience were apparent from the moment I met her. Watching her compete on the District 42 stage at the International Speech contest in her rookie year showed me that she is a talented and engaging speaker, and a force to be reckoned with.

She is clearly passionate about the Toastmasters program and committed to its members’ growth and success. As a Pathways Guide, she is in the forefront of innovation and exemplifies continuous learning. I believe she is our best choice for District 42 Program Quality Director 2018-2019.

2017 District 42 International Speech Champion

The program quality director is responsible for all aspects of education and training within the district. This role appeals to me because of my direct experience in two short years as a Toastmaster.  I brought experience with me into Toastmasters that enabled me to progress quickly in both the communication and leadership tracks.

I believe in the value of the current program, and worked through the requirements of the communication track in nineteen months, speaking at my own clubs (High River Toastmasters and MVP Advanced) and guest speaking at other clubs and Club Officer Trainings. I am in the home stretch of a Distinguished Toastmaster award (on track for completion before year-end), having completed my club executive and district leadership positions.

As a Pathways Guide, I am familiar with the new program and am really excited about its potential to develop leaders in both business and the community. I see Pathways as a leap forward in relevance in the modern world, and cannot wait to enroll in and complete the Pathways Mentor program and my first path.

I have also participated in speech contests, reaching the division stage three times and the district stage twice. I believe in the potential of competition in helping us stretch and grow. Healthy competition raises the bar for all of us.

I believe that this is a pivotal year with the rollout of Pathways, and it is important to select our candidates on the entirety of credentials both inside and outside of Toastmasters. I am thrilled with the slate of candidates contesting for the District Trio, and would love to have the opportunity to lend my experience as Program Quality Director.
