We love celebrating our colleagues and giving back to our community, so we combined these two loves several years ago. Each month, BlueModus’ Management Team selects two colleagues who shine and represent the values that make this a great workplace. These two colleagues select a charity, and we donate to it on their behalf.
For March 2023, one of those colleagues is Jocelyn LaVen. She joined the BlueModus Team in April 2022 as a Senior Project Manager. She’s been a consistently positive force for the team, providing structure, organization, and a calming presence even in the most hectic scenarios. She manages all her clients and projects with a focus on value and quality, along with a smile.
Jocelyn has selected JDRF International for a $500 donation from BlueModus. JDRF is the leading global organization harnessing the power of research, advocacy, and community engagement to advance life-changing breakthroughs for type 1 diabetes.
“My cousin-in-law’s child was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes a few years ago. It’s been a whirlwind of emotions since he was diagnosed, and ever since, our family has been focused on helping raise money for JDRF in hopes of one day finding a cure,” said Jocelyn.
Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease when a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, the hormone controlling blood sugar levels. T1D develops when the body’s immune system mistakenly destroys the insulin-producing pancreatic beta cells. The cause of this attack is still being researched. However, scientists believe the cause may have genetic and environmental components.
