Jocelyn has been editing professionally for over 10 years. She received her MFA in Film Editing from the American Film Institute in Los Angeles in 2005. During her time at AFI she worked with Oliver Stone on “Alexander” and with Gary Oldman on “Nil By Mouth.”

 She was nominated for an ACE student editing award as well as a KeyArt Award and was the recipient of the Hollywood Foreign Press “Achievement in Editing” scholarship in 2004. After graduation she went on to edit award-winning theatrical trailer campaigns in Hollywood for Creative Domain and Trailer Park. Her campaigns include Spider-Man 2, Diary of a Mad Black Woman, March of the Penguins, The Polar Express, Spirited Away, The Aviator, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, Akeelah and the Bee, Kinsey, and many more.      

In 2006 she left trailer editing to tackle the world of television. Since 2006 she has edited over 12 shows including Paranormal State, The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Flip That House, and most recently a soon-to-premiere show for Discovery’s pioneering new 3D network involving lots of meat!

Beyond teaching at Drexel Jocelyn runs a non-profit called Redeeming Waters International that brings food, clean water, and medical supplies to orphans in Africa and Haiti, while also continuing to edit on a freelance basis for television production companies in NY, LA, and DC. Throughout all of her work, she has managed to remain an “avid” snowboarder.
