CMDA Richmond Assistant Director
Jocelyn Cassidy grew up on a small farm in a little town in Idaho. After graduating in 2017 from the College of Southern Idaho, God moved her to Salt Lake City, Utah. While living in Utah she met her husband Ben and they both ended up being involved in student ministry through their church. Within just a few months of marriage God brought them to Richmond for Ben’s continued education at VCU SOM. She loves being involved in student ministry and is excited for the opportunity to be a part of CMDA! Jocelyn works in healthcare administration and loves that her job allows for her to advocate for patients & build relationships with them. Some or her favorite things involve building relationships and spending quality time with family and friends, new & old. She also loves diving into a good book or doing anything outdoors!
