Jocelyn Michelsen

Jocelyn is passionate about helping nonprofits use data to unleash their impact and better partner with their communities. Currently, she serves as the Director of Learning + Evaluation with Community Housing Partnership, a San Francisco nonprofit providing permanent housing and support services to over 1900 chronically homeless families and adults. Before that, she designed and managed research and evaluation studies for government, nonprofits, and foundations, working with Public Profit in the Bay Area and internationally with Doctors Without Borders. She holds a Master’s of Public Administration from NYU, a Master’s of French from Bowling Green State University, and Bachelor’s degrees in Political Science and French from UC Berkeley.

Outside of work, Jocelyn’s main interests are Oakland A’s baseball, all things Francophone language and culture, being involved in her neighborhood’s very active community organizing board, and baking. She is currently working on building an Oakland-based micro bakery using locally-grown produce, and she is always looking for volunteers to try out new bakes.
