Jocelyn Mast

Administrative Assistant

I love that our ministry brings foster children and foster families together. My passion is to serve our staff and families by completing a variety of responsibilities as Administrative Assistant. I am blessed to have a supporting role at Encourage, allowing the staff additional time to engage more deeply with children and families.
