The Edified Projects Team

Edified Projects’ small team of talented professionals love what we do, and we do it with passion.

Alicia Hibbert, PMP, MA

Founder, Editor, Project Manager, & Facilitator [Land Acknowledgements]

I’m a Metis person with ties to Manitoba and Alberta (prairie perspective). I get a lot of joy from working collaboratively, with a sense of hopefulness and forward-thinking, and I love making the plans, seeing the patterns, and figuring out how to achieve maximum impact with minimal resources. I value applying these gifts for societal change and community wellbeing, and I try to do that across all of my work.⁠

I have an MA and PMP accreditation (Project Management Professional from the Project Management Institute) with 10 years of experience as a project manager, primarily working in partnership with Indigenous communities and leading wellbeing initiatives in post-secondary. I enjoy (I’m not kidding) strategic planning, evaluation, facilitation, editing, writing, and project management. I think of challenges as a puzzle and I use these skills to get further towards a solution.

You can also connect with me on LinkedIn, Twitter, or Instagram, or view my profile with the Indigenous Editors Association here.


Becca Shortt, MA

Community-Engaged Partnerships & Facilitator [Land Acknowledgements]

I am a settler born and raised on Treaty 6, just outside of Amiskwaciy Waskahikan (Beaver Hills House – Edmonton, A.B.). Currently I live on the unceded territory of the Lekwungen speaking peoples, known today as the Songhees and Esquimalt nations (Victoria, B.C.). Reciprocity, relationality, and gratitude drive the focus of my work in Indigenous engagement and allyship.

I have an MA in Community Engagement with a specific focus on Indigenous/non-Indigenous ethical relationships and collaboration as well as 5 years experience working with Indigenous communities throughout Treaty 6 and Treaty 8. I am passionate about working with diverse groups of people who bring their own worldviews, experiences, stories, and knowledge into a collaborative learning space. I believe every individual has gifts they bring that help build a stronger collective.


Monica Naber, M.C., R. Psych (AB)

Registered Psychologist & Facilitator

I am a first-generation immigrant in Canada. I am incredibly grateful to be currently living and working in Amiskwaciwaskahikan (Edmonton) in Treaty 6 territory. I love watching the joy and wonder around me and living this life to the fullest. My happiness and fulfillment in life are achieved by hearing my children laugh and growing together with them, having loving and kind reciprocal relationships, and helping/empowering others to find their joy and wonder.

Everyone has a unique story to tell, and I love hearing that story. I believe everyone has the right and deserves the time and space to share that story.

Life is busy, complex, and at times difficult. I am passionate about supporting people and sharing information that can lead them down a path of happiness, being able to manage stress, improving their relationships, and navigating this complex world where we stay kind to ourselves. Everyone deserves this! I believe this wholeheartedly.

I have been a registered psychologist for 5 years and have worked in the field of mental health in both the private and public sectors. I have experience in treatment/counselling and assessments. Through this experience, I recognize the value in both. As a working mother, I appreciate the complexities that the day-to-day can bring. Because every family, life, and person is unique, I believe in finding modern ways to support mental health.
