Gillian MacDonald-Petty

Study Abroad & Exchange Advisor (Inbound)

Gillian's best piece of advice for incoming exchange students? Take the leap! The world is a beautiful place to explore and Nova Scotia is one of the rare gems waiting to be discovered. 

Gillian grew up in Nova Scotia, but has travelled the globe and lived in many special places. It was leaving the province to go explore the world that has helped her to realize just how truly special Nova Scotia is and she is happy to be living in the area again after many years away from home. 

She has a passion for group facilitation and activities, meaningful and heartfelt discussions over coffee, and loves sharing all that the city of Halifax has to offer. Playing games, gardening, book club and movies, as well as drinking cappuccinos on Monday morning and baking the perfect cookie are some of the things that put a smile on her face.
