Many years ago I was introduced to the 212 philosophy where water is stable, unchanging, and predictable at 211 degrees, but once that one extra degree is succeeded, change begins and great things happen. Every time I lace up my skates, open a textbook, meet with an employee, or discuss a situation with a client, I strive to achieve that one extra degree that makes all the difference between good and great!

At Two Twelve Consulting we provide 212 level focus and achieve 212 level success for you and your company each and every time!

After starting a family, Jocelyn decided to spend a few years at home to enjoy time with her daughters, Aubry and Brielle, and focus on their growing cattle ranch. In 2022 Jocelyn met with Danielle and it was during that fateful coffee date that she decided she was ready for a new challenge and partnered with Two Twelve Consulting to offer her expertise and provide Human Resources services to local businesses.
