Vicki Crowell – Senior Account Executive
Vicki joined the SH Radio team in November of 2017 to work within the NS Age Friendly Communities grant received by SH Radio to expand our reach in the community.
Vicki was born and raised in Sheet Harbour, and had varied career experience including being a certified CCA. Vicki found that Sheet Harbour is like the song “Hotel California”, Sheet Harbour has a mystical way of allowing you to “check out anytime you like, but you can never leave.” Which always seemed to pull her back to her roots, sense of community and the smell of the ocean which is not one you can obtain in a bottle. Her love for family, friends, music and community are the reasons she returned to her hometown. Vicki is an anti bullying advocate, gender equality enthusiast, anti domestic violence enthusiast/advocate, Mental Health advocate and truly believes in equality for all, a voice for the voiceless. Her position with SH Radio is an added bonus!
Music has always been a huge part of Vicki’s life. Vicki believes music can be an avenue for so many who struggle with simply finding a “niche” with which they can identify.
Vicki’s role with SH radio happens with a love for music and people. Vicki enjoys a smile, a laugh and at the end of the day, knowing you made a difference no matter the size is one of the most gratifying feelings one can embrace. If she hasn’t had a chat or chuckle with you, she certainly looks forward to doing so.
