Jocelyn Burke, MA.Ed., RYT-200, CMP-NLP
Ever since she was a little girl, Jocelyn has had an incredible passion for teaching, leadership and helping other’s grow. Her career started early in the field of education, tutoring students of all ages with a specialty for kids with learning challenges. Her passion and experience supporting her younger sister with Asperger’s and ADHD lead her to become a behavioral therapist and executive functioning coach for kids and families working through social, emotional and behavioral challenges.
Jocelyn takes a unique approach to her work by integrating mindfulness practices which originated from her extensive yoga practice, eventually leading her to pursue being a certified yoga teacher. She graduated from the University of California, San Diego with a degree in Linguistics with a focus in Cognition and American Sign Language and had the opportunity to serve as the Program Director of Club Xcite, a local tutoring and coaching company servicing all of San Diego County where she helped build integrative and holistic programs like Mindful Adventures, Brain Power, Social Skills for Students, and more.
Her passion for spreading awareness of skills and strategies for lifelong success supported her as she continued to train coaches and educators at Club Xcite and as well as training new certified yoga instructors to teach their own yoga classes. Inspired to create change in the field of learning and development worldwide, she completed her Master’s Degree in Education with a specialty in school leadership as she simultaneously pursued complementary trainings in integrative psychology and spiritual sciences to become an energy worker, Certified Master Practitioner of Neurolinguistic Programming, Mental and Emotional Release Therapy®, and more.
She currently lives in San Diego, CA with her social and emotional support dog Stella and snuggly kitty Thor as she coaches and develops new training programs for kids, families, and educators worldwide through Club Xcite and coaches spiritually-driven teachers and wellness service professionals through her company Silver Souls Wellness. She also serves on the board of directors for San Diego Non-Profit Mindfulness 4 Youth, hosting community events and supporting local youth in having access to mindfulness and inner peace. In her free time, she loves practicing yoga and meditation, going for hikes with Stella, studying spiritual sciences in Hawaii, and visiting her family in North Idaho.
