Jocylen Ashton

Assistant Dean of Career Education & Associate Director of Employer Relations & Otucomes (ERO) - Internships & Employment

Tell us something interesting about your background?
I am a first-generation college graduate, while not so unique, it has shaped the work I do, and how I show up in the world, assisting others in the pursuit of their goals, helping them define a path and a plan, seeing options instead of obstacles on their way to success.

What has led you to your current role?
I joined BEAM in 2018 with a great commitment to continue connecting students to great careers. BEAM is focused on purpose and meaning when it comes to careers, and I really believe in that mission.

In your spare time, what do you enjoy doing?
I spend a lot of my spare time working on initiatives that focus on access and education for children. I support community efforts for exposing children to leadership as well as access to STEM education for black youth in the Bay Area. For fun, I like local hikes, reading, and the occasional craft.
