Chief Financial Officer
Jocelyn De Souza received her bachelor’s degree in Accounting from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. Upon completion of her undergraduate program, Jocelyn went on to earn her master’s degree in Business Administration, also from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. She began her accounting career in 2012 as an audit and tax associate for a local Certified Public Accountant. The majority of Jocelyn’s audit clients were not-for-profit health centers, which is what initially piqued her interest in working in healthcare. In 2015, Jocelyn joined Southcoast Behavioral Health as the Senior Accountant before working her way up to Controller in 2017, and Chief Financial Officer in December 2020.
“As one of the original staff members who helped open Southcoast Behavioral Health in 2015, I have been afforded the opportunity to watch hospital grow into what it is today,” said Jocelyn. “The team at SCBH is like no other and we all work together toward the same goal – providing quality care to every patient that comes through our doors.”
