Jocelyn Rheaume is the woman behind Bossy Jossy Productions. Dave Rheaume the youngest of her 5 brothers, came up with the name Bossy Jossy when asked for suggestions. He also designed the company logo – quickly scratched out on a paper napkin as a joke. The name perfectly suited Jocelyn and her self-deprecating sense of humor and so both it and the logo stuck.
Jossy was born in Aklavik when her father Gene Rheaume was the Member of Parliament for the Northwest Territories, and moved to Ottawa with her family where she lives today.
She is of Métis heritage and is a proud member of the Métis Nation of Ontario.
Jocelyn holds a Bachelor of Arts (with Theatre concentration), a Bachelor of Education, and a Master's Degree in Education - all from the University of Ottawa.
Jossy taught Dramatic Arts and English at Glebe Collegiate Institute in Ottawa for 11 years before joining her former student Alanis Morissette on her epic Jagged Little Pill World Tour.
After that Jossy landed a gig handling all the on-site media for Sarah McLachlan’s Lilith Fair- another wildly successful tour sweeping across North America. One tour lead to another and she spent 9 years in total travelling around the world working with artists and bands like: Chrissie Hynde and the Pretenders, Neil Young, Paula Cole, The Goo Goo Dolls, Chantal Kreviazuk and Avril Lavigne.
In 2003 Jossy transitioned primarily into video production- and has since produced, directed and written more than 100 videos for clients across a spectrum of government, corporate and private sector organizations. She also co-produced a television series for APTN - Sheltered, that involved adventures in the most remote regions of Africa, Peru and Costa Rica.
While on a shoot with Jossy you are likely to hear a road warrior story or two and have a few laughs.
