Keltie McKenzie: Canadian Heritage Program Advisor

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

She worked in museum education for a number of years before landing her dream job with Canadian Heritage as a Senior Program Advisor. Her 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 grounds me and reminds me of my educational roots.

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