Jocelyn Peterman fulfilled a lifelong dream in 2016 when, as the second for Team Chelsea Carey, she competed at her first Tournament of Hearts at just 22 years old. The dream got even better as they won the national title, sending Peterman to her first world championship where they made it to the bronze medal game.
In 2017, Peterman and Team Carey won the bronze medal at the Tournament of Hearts and were later the runners-up to Team Homan at the Canadian Curling Trials to determine Team Canada for PyeongChang 2018. At the end of the 2017-18 season, Peterman decided to move to Winnipeg to join Team Jennifer Jones, taking over the second position from Jill Officer who had decided to retire.
In her first season with Team Jones, Peterman won the 2018 Canada Cup and competed at the 2019 Tournament of Hearts. In 2020, they earned the wild card into the Tournament of Hearts where they went on to win the bronze medal.
After winning the Canadian Trials in November 2021, Team Jones became Team Canada at Beijing 2022. In Peterman’s Olympic debut, they finished with a 5-4 record and missed the playoffs by one spot.
Peterman has also enjoyed success in mixed doubles. In 2016, she and partner Brett Gallant won the Canadian Mixed Doubles Curling Trials, the first ever mixed doubles event they had entered together. They would go on to win the 2019 Canadian Mixed Doubles Championship, which sent them to the World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship where they won the silver medal.
As a junior, Peterman skipped her own team to the national title in 2012 and went on to compete at the 2012 World Junior Championships.
