Interim Director, Survivor Advocacy/Interpersonal Violence
Allison began working with survivors of domestic and sexual violence in early 2000 as a volunteer for a rural crisis hotline while completing her undergraduate degree in Cultural Anthropology at Western Oregon University. Since then, she has remained deeply invested in advocating for survivors through her work with local nonprofits; organizing and building collaborations in local and State government; and providing local and national training that focuses on the development of collaborative community responses to gender-based violence. Allison lives in West Salem with her family and enjoys adventuring outdoors, gardening, and curling up with a good book. She is excited to be a part of the OSU community and looks forward to working together to enhance prevention, response, and support efforts for survivors at Oregon State. Please stop by and say hello!

Jocelyn comes to SARC with over 15 years of experience in the health and wellness industry as a licensed massage therapist, yoga instructor, meditation teacher, and manager and director of nonprofit and community yoga studios. A born and bred Oregonian, Jocelyn lived all across the U.S. before settling in Corvallis to complete her Masters of Arts degree in Applied Ethics with an emphasis in Yogic Philosophy, Sociology, and Emergent Technologies at Oregon State University. It was during her time as a master’s student that she devised and taught a program addressing the stressors of teaching, learning, and communicating through online synchronous platforms. Trauma-Informed guidance has always been at the forefront of Jocelyn’s work, and she feels that joining the SARC team brings together her years of contemplative practice, stress management education, and awareness of the ongoing needs of survivors in the academic setting. During her off-time, Jocelyn enjoys hiking, backpacking, snowshoeing, and traveling with her husband and dog. She can always be pinged for a good yoga (virtual or in-person) resource list.
