Keltie Mac Kenzie, Canadian Heritage Program Advisor

Alumni Profile

After graduating from both the history and education programs at King’s, I began working in museum education which enabled me to focus on my love for history more than I would have been able to in a typical classroom setting.

"Every morning I look out the window of my office and see King's Tower in the distance. It's an amazing reminder of where I came from, and how properly equipping yourself to follow your calling can take you places you never imagined."

I worked in museum education for a number of years where I was involved with the Edmonton Historical Board and played a key role in the creation of Wheritage - an interactive cartography game of Fort Edmonton Park's built heritage. Following this, I landed my dream job with Canadian Heritage as a Senior Program Advisor. My role involves using federal funding to promote stewardship and sustainability at arts and heritage sites across Canada.

I love promoting diverse communities and faithful stewardship. It's so rewarding to see the ways in which my work impacts physical and social landscapes across Canada. I live out my passion for history each day. Every morning I look out the window of my office and see King's Tower in the distance. It's an amazing reminder of where I came from, and how properly equipping yourself to follow your calling can take you places you never imagined.

In addition to my work with Canadian Heritage, I currently sits as the public member on the Edmonton Historical Board Communications Committee where I have the opportunity to advise the City of Edmonton on best practices for preservation of the city’s stories through commemoration, recognition, and preservation of local history.
