Chantilly, Va.

Jocilyn says Marquette’s motto of cura personalis helped to instill values in her that make her a successful person, both in her work and her family life.

The biomedical sciences alumna works as the analysis and data lead for the chief procurement office within FirstNet.

“I like that I’m using the skills and knowledge that I gained at Marquette to help first responders nationwide,” she says. “I can’t think of a better way than helping to ensure first responders have stellar communication that will not fail in the case of a national emergency.”

In addition to her work, Jocilyn enjoys spending time with her family, especially her two young children.

“I spend a lot of time helping with their activities and at their school,” she says. “It’s a great way to spend extra time with them, and organizations always appreciate the extra help with the little ones.”

Jocilyn looks back on her time at Marquette fondly, and attributes the education she received as a major source of her success.

“Marquette was and continues to be such a huge part of my life,” she says. “I’m honored and grateful that Marquette University believes I’m worthy of such an honor. This award motivates me to strive to continue for greatness.”
