Keltie grew up in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, and like many in our province, she lived away. Since returning home to Nova Scotia in 2009, Keltie has quickly become an integral member of the Truro-Bible Hill-Millbrook-Salmon River community, as well as one of its most passionate advocates. As Assistant Dean at the Dalhousie Agricultural Campus in Bible Hill, she has applied her extensive experience in management, administration, facilitation, and mediation to help lead this vital institution forward. Keltie believes in lifelong learning and has earned a Bachelor of Arts, a Law degree, and her Doctorate in Business Administration.
In addition, Keltie serves on the Board of Directors of the United Way of Colchester County, the Colchester East Hants Health Centre Foundation, the Colchester Adult Learning Association, as well as several committees for the Town of Truro. Keltie lives in Truro with her wife Joy, who is also an active community volunteer. Joy serves as an Volunteer Firefighter and basketball referee.
As MLA, Keltie would be an effective voice for our community in the House of Assembly. Her focus on sustainable economic development and innovative approach to public policy would deliver meaningful results for Truro - Bible Hill - Millbrook - Salmon River. She will utilize her extensive experience in public policy, education, agriculture and labour relations to drive solutions that will help our community and our province reach their full potential.
