Expert Marketer & Connector
with a larger-than-life laugh.
My name is Jocelyn Vande Velde. I'm passionate and witty and I like to smile a lot (and laugh even more). I'm good at remembering details about our last conversation--no matter how long ago--and I'd love to swap restaurant recommendations. I am a marketer by trade, but probably by DNA too as I'm the child of a salesman and waitress.
I love collaborating with creative, open-minded thinkers who avoid sayings like "we don't do that here." I like asking questions, trying instead of wondering, creating experiences rather than buying things as well as seeking learning opportunities to stay "in-the-know." I am a mother and wife; blending the needs of my family and my personal endeavors is forefront in my mind. I especially love connecting people, traveling and exploring, being outdoors (especially in or by the water), trying eateries and cooking, riding one of my bikes, making stuff, exercising, reading a good book or article and discovering new music.
While I've made the Madison, WI area my home for over a decade, I've was fortunate enough to move the family to Southern Orange County, California, from 2019-2021, to lead the North American marketing team for Bosch eBike Systems. We loved it there, but love Wisconsin more and so I still manage the team from the Midwest--a real win:win for everyone so I can catch more calls with our German HQ.
