Michael Kelly

Special Projects Manager

After volunteering for two years, Michael joined the Hospice Halifax staff in 2018. Michael spent his formative years in Nova Scotia as the Director of a Scout Canada Summer camp, which led to a lifelong passion for outdoor recreation and youth programming. Graduating from the Dalhousie University Recreation Management program (BSc/BMgt), Michael has been working in the field of events since 2012, planning, implementing and evaluating special events. The majority of Michael’s special event experience comes in the form of large scale public sector events such as the Halifax-Dartmouth Natal Day program, Canada Day, Wolfville’s Mud Creek Days, and many more. Michael has also worked on not-for-profit initiatives such as the Magic Wine Bus and for-profit events like the Halifax Oyster Festival. Michael is passionate about culture, events and helping bring people together to highlight the fun side of life. Outside of work, Michael attends special events, rock climbs, eats exotic foods, plays video games, and tells lots of jokes.
