    • February 9, 2019 – When asked to define servant leadership, how that applies to her life now, and her future career, Joselyne said: “Servant leadership is like Christ’s leadership. Using the power you have to serve others, instead of using it to dictate them. It is leading by example, always being the first to do what you need others to do. It is walking the talk. It applies in my daily life because I try my best wherever I am to serve people that I lead. In my career, as I am a pharmacist in the making, I will serve a lot of people who will be sick. And as we know they need all the attention and affection, I will try my best to render them good service and stay humble as I will be serving them.”

Joselyne’S CIRCLE

  • R. & D. Pizzo – Oregon City, OR
  • J. & D. Howard – Reno, NV


When Joselyne was young, with encouragement from her parents, teachers, and neighbors, she grew a deep love and desire for higher education. When she was a child, she experienced the loss of family members to unknown illnesses. That loss was the driving force that triggered something in her, the realization that she can be part of the change for the future. Currently, as she pursues a degree in Medicine, Joselyne also sees the importance of educating young girls. She is a mentor to many, leading them towards higher education, self-reliance, and finding their confidence to be leaders!
