Scott Campbell

Scott joined the WEV Board of Directors in July 2023 and looks forward to serving on one of the committees starting in September.

Scott is a Valley Boy, born and raised in Annapolis Royal. While there he worked at several jobs including working as a writer for the local paper (The Spectator) and at King’s Theatre where his love of theatre began. Not long after, Scott helped to create and became Artistic Director of, the Original Cast Theatre Company. He did this until 1993 when he decided to broaden his horizons and headed to Acadia University,  graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Lit and a Masters of Education in Counselling.

Shortly after graduation, Scott was hired at Acadia University as their First Year Student Advisor. Then, in 2002 he was approached by the Nova Scotia Community College to be a Student Success Counsellor,  followed shortly thereafter as a faculty member of the School of Health & Human Services, where he has been ever since. 

While working with NSCC Scott collaborated with a former graduate school classmate and they created Parker Grey Counselling. In 2021 – after 23 years as a licensed counsellor – he retired from counselling.

Aside from his professional affiliations, Scott is also a potter and the owner/operator of Scott Campbell Pottery.

Last year Scott decided to revisit his theatrical roots, producing and directing Shirley Valentine at King’s Theatre in Annapolis Royal. This year’s production is Dracula at King’s Theatre in Annapolis Royal.

Scott lives with his partner of almost 20 years and their forever-changing menagerie of pets in a refurbished farmhouse in Kentville. They are avid travellers and have visited many countries and continents over the years. They are also pretty serious foodies. They also have a “small” hobby vineyard in their backyard where they lovingly care for 255 Geisenheim grape vines.
