- Highlighting brands and legacies -
- Developing the intersection between intergenerational audiences -
- Promoting social justice through the arts.

Jocelyn's GRAMMY, Library of Congress and ASCAP Deems Taylor Award-nominated projects have resulted in collections being placed at the Library of Congress, colleges and universities.

She teaches multimedia production at the NY Times Summer Institute. 

Kathryn has excelled in development and communications positions for nearly ten years. She has worked closely with nonprofit boards, executive directors, foundations, corporations, government representatives and individual stakeholders to build truly impactful, longstanding funding relationships and increasing access to arts and culture for all.
