I plan to continue to keep educating others to the best of my ability and to always be open to personal growth and educating myself. Fun Fact: I absolutely love anything to do with pickles! And the colour green. Which pickles are, hmm coincidence? I think not!

Brittany Pellissier-Lush

Store Lead and Production Assistant

My name is Brittany Lush and I am from Lennox Island First Nation. I am a mother of two beautiful girls named Miah and Brianna. I have been working with Mi’kmaq Printing & Design for almost a year now, and I love it. My role in the team is the store lead and production assistant. I have learned so much and always look forward to learning more as our organization continues to grow. I graduated from Colonel Gray High School and I have worked at several different positions until I came here and discovered that this is where I belong. Fun fact about me would be that if I became instantly rich I would still do what I am doing now but I would buy a huge farm and make a safe haven/no kill shelter for all those dogs and cats out there that need love and care!
