& expert, Madison tour guide
My name is Jocelyn Vande Velde and I've made the Madison, WI area my home for over twelve years, but I've been fortunate enough to travel a fair amount of the world. Some say I'm pretty witty and I tend 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 give you restaurant recommendations.
I am a marketer by trade, but probably by DNA too. Because, let's face it, great marketers are great storytellers yet know how to listen. 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.
