SACKVILLE, N.B. – Renaissance Sackville has a new coordinator.
Julia Feltham is replacing Stacey Merrigan as Renaissance’s community engagement coordinator. Merrigan stepped down from the position to pursue further education at UNB.
Hailing from Halifax, Feltham’s professional background includes helping start-up non-government organizations and non-profits and she has worked with a number of universities in Nova Scotia, running visioning workshops and conferences.
A social entrepreneur by nature, Feltham has gained experience in facilitation work and has, over the years, been hired by municipal, provincial and federal governments to help host conversations and build capacity of the volunteer sector and bridge the gap between grassroots community development and other inter-related sectors.
Feltham is a singing cellist who has a passion for the arts and helps run the Hub Halifax, a co-working space in downtown Halifax.
