SEEDS THANKS PAST EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

SEEDS hired its first Executive Director, Jocelyn Cramer in January 2013. Jocelyn came to SEEDS from a varied background in theatre, human resources and business management. Born and raised in Lackawanna County, Jocelyn lived in Providence, RI, Boston, MA and New York, NY until moving back to Wayne County full time in 2011.

Jocelyn has volunteered for dozens of arts organizations, the International Refugee Committee and the International Center in Manhattan. She retired from her position as Executive Director in early 2019 and remains active with our organization as a volunteer and Board Member.
