Kathleen Hamm – At Home Here in Nova Scotia

Occupation: Insurance Broker, by day - Singer/Actor, by night

Place of Birth:  Toronto, ON

Currently Resides:  Chester Basin, NS

Where’s your favourite place in Nova Scotia to grab a coffee?

The Kiwi Cafe in Chester

Where’s your favourite place in Nova Scotia to grab a pint? 

Not a drinker of the pints, but The Focs'le Tavern in Chester is the perfect place for a beverage with friends.

Where’s your favourite place to shop in Nova Scotia?

Not a shopping enthusiast, but love to browse through hardware stores.  I have a passion for interior decorating.

Where in Nova Scotia would we stand to see your favourite view?

So many to choose from....three of my favs are at the top of Castle Rock in East River, The Look-off near Blomidon;  and there's nothing like the beauty of the Cabot Trail when the Fall leaves are all in brilliant color!

Name 3 things we’ve gotta do when I visit Nova Scotia:

  1. Experience the"Super-Wild Ride" tidal-bore rafting in Shubenacadie
  2. Hike the many beautiful trails
  3. Relax by the ocean, close your eyes, and listen to the waves as they roll in

What makes Nova Scotia such a special place on earth for you?

The vastness of the Atlantic Ocean, the saltwater air, the richness of the earth, and the warmth of the people make Nova Scotia such a special place for me.  Oh, and let's not forget; it's where I met my hubby 🙂  When my kids were growing up, I would always get them to stop & look out at the ocean; and I would tell them never to take it for granted!  Not everyone has the privilege of living with such a beautiful background.

  10. I met Kathleen a long time when I was a young teen...I babysat for her and took aerobics classes from her...I love Autumn Love and play for the day care kids I have in my home, instantly soothing! We were so blessed to have her and Brad perform at our breast cancer fund raiser in June! Kathleen is always smiling and laughing...a wonderful ambassador for our area! Can't wait for the next CD!
