Meet The Peach

Hey there!

I'm Jocelyn, the lead peach! ūüćϬ†I absolutely love¬†the¬†intersection of all things from dogs, coffee¬†and magic to pop culture to the dark and twisted. I'm weird. They've said it all my life. I'm cool with that, weird is better than boring!

A true animal lover, I grew up with a menagerie of cats, dogs, birds, hamsters, tree frogs and so much more. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, then moved to Hoboken with my husband Ian.

We've been together almost 20 years now! In 2009, we brought home a Shiba Inu puppy we named Loki. That was a crazy time.

During those years, I was Special Projects Editor for Fast Company magazine, where I did everything from manage 500+ person conferences, public relations and social media and oversee daily office operations.  

Work was stressful and so was raising a puppy, both took their toll on my already frail health. When we moved out of Hoboken the winter after Hurricane Sandy, I also left my job after being hospitalized for a week. Shit sucks sometimes. 

Once I got my health under some semblance of control, I needed and wanted to get back to work. I took on the Operations Manager position of Jersey City's Tails On Trails. It was a whole new experience working with a small business, with intense client communications. While I absolutely loved ensuring the pets had the best care, the work left my creative side untapped. 

When the pandemic hit, everything changed. I felt lost but also felt this sense of freedom, to explore my creative side in an unfettered way.  So I ran with it and with the support of my husband, my family and friends, I decided to jump in with both feet (or climb the tree for the highest fruit if you want an apt metaphor). 

There's much more to my story. I don't know if anyone wants to hear it, but I'll share it one day as I feel more confident in my work and reaching new people.
