Shaelyn Brown (She/Her), BHPED, Manager, Education & Programming

Meet Shaelyn Brown, our Manager of Education and Programming! Shaelyn's been kicking it in the sports world since she could barely tie her shoes at the age of four. Named in part after Canadian Ice Dancer Shae Lynn Bourne, she also found a similar love for figure skating while attending the National Sport School, which allowed her to compete across Canada until she hung up her blades in 2015. This lifelong passion for sport led to her career today, where she uses the powerful life lessons and teamwork skills she’s learned through sport to inspire and empower young minds to go beyond the win – on and off the ice.

Jolene Parks (She/Her), BA, Education Content Writer & Facilitator

Introducing Jolene, our Education Content Writer and Facilitator at Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame. Leveraging her past as both a former athlete and educator, she's got the inside edge that sports go beyond scoring goals—it’s about the teamwork, resilience, and integrity you gain while chasing the puck. With a passion for creating dynamic and enjoyable learning experiences, Jolene takes centre ice in shaping fun and interactive programs at Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame. So, lace up your skates because with Jolene leading the power play, education isn't just a lesson—it's an epic adventure!

Jacob (He/Him) - Assistant Multimedia Developer

Jacob began working at Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame in 2022 after graduating from SAIT Polytechnic’s Film and Video Production course. He helps oversee the live production in the studio and keeps his friends humble with his witty sense of humor. When not at work, Jacob keeps himself busy making music at his home studio. You can never have too many studios.

Zack (He/Him) - Multimedia Developer

Zack studied film and video production at SAIT Polytechnic, where he worked on several films including a feature that was screened at the Calgary International Film Festival. Zack joined Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame in 2020 and since then has overseen the studio, operating the hardware and software used to deliver virtual education programs. When he’s not in the dark little corner of the studio he calls an office, Zack is out taking pictures and watching movies (probably Ocean’s Eleven for the 20th time).

Linda (She/Her) - Museum Volunteer

Linda is a former teacher and administration both in Toronto and Calgary. She joined the volunteer staff of Canada’s Sport Hall of Fame in its second year of existence at the Calgary location and is entering her tenth year as an education volunteer for CSHoF. Her 16 years as an educator, ranging from Early Childhood right on through Junior High School, has led her to continue working with youth and youth-centred organizations for the last 23 years as a volunteer. Matching her passion for learning is her passion for travel and sport. Sport and outdoor pursuits have led to far off hiking treks, long distance running, golfing and ski trips. Family, friends and fun are at the heart of everything she does.
