Meet The Peach

Hey there!

I'm Jocelyn, the lead peach! 🍑 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.

                              But for now, it's time to walk Loki! 🐕🍑
