Leader: Jocelyn VanDerPloeg
Hi! I’m Jocelyn, you can call me “J”. My husband, Ethan, and I have been living in Eastern China for the past 2.5 years working as English teachers. We have a one-year-old daughter, Raya Jane. Before moving to China in 2016, I worked as a registered nurse in Indianapolis, IN (our home base). After a difficult delivery of Raya in Chiang Mai, Thailand last year, my heart has grown for moms in this season. I am passionate about coming alongside moms on their journey through pregnancy, postpartum transition (“the fourth trimester”), and navigating life with a baby. I no longer teach English so my main role has transitioned to staying home as a ‘supporting spouse’, managing our home, language learning, and raising my little, adventurous girl. I’m passionate about holistic health, nutrition, prevention, and education. I enjoy being outside, horseback-riding, reading, organizing, and helping others grow. My heart for this group is that it would be a safe place for authentic community, support, encouragement, and gathering resources as you navigate one of the most beautiful, yet potentially overwhelming, times of your life.
