Alicia Brett - Parks Canada Representative

Alicia Brett

Parks Canada Representative

A lover of people and a good yarn, Alicia is tickled to join such interesting and interested people and help them connect to the stories of Sable Island.

Alicia works and plays in the Kespukwitk district of Mi’kma’ki, or southwestern Nova Scotia. She learned to pedal and paddle at Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site, which has recently come full circle with her children doing the same.

Alicia has had only one job in her adult life: she has been telling stories about Canada’s national parks and national historic places, including Sable Island National Park Reserve, for over twenty years. This is particularly fortuitous since she has a deep love of nature, culture, and people and delights in making connections. She is grateful to work with passionate specialists to share their work with visitors, dreamers, and worldwide audiences through a variety of media. No two days, or two stories, are the same.

Alicia’s formal education is in political science, public relations and French, including studies in Europe. Her informal education includes community building, mothering, growing food, and travel. A fervent lover of picnics, she loves the refuelling as much as the adventure and shamelessly plans hiking, canoeing, and paddling routes around her Epicurean desires.
