Plenty of experience
Her love for animals has helped her continue on with the publication of her magazine and behavioural therapy. But with such a wide range of interests in business, communities and people, Pardy was ready to step into a new role that would give her the opportunity to showcase her skills. “I’m not afraid of a challenge,” she says. Other positions she has held over the years include working with the Marketing Association of Canada, a senior sales and marketing analyst, founder of LYRCA, an advocate for saving animals, a horse rescuer and members of many not-for-profit organizations.
She returned to Newfoundland after a quarter of a century working away.
Pardy is new to Harbour Grace, but she has already begun settling in nicely. She and her partner have recently moved into their new home and are beginning to create a life there.
Although she is a newcomer, that doesn’t make her a stranger. The charismatic woman with auburn hair is enthusiastic and friendly. She enjoys intelligent conversation and can speak on many topics, from education to haematology, and she loves a good debate.
Pardy is excited about her journey with the Town of Harbour Grace, and is open to chatting with anyone willing to talk about how the community can move forward.
Starting Tuesday, Sept. 15, the new town office will be open, and Pardy will begin her adventure in her new office.
“I can’t wait to see what’s in store for Harbour Grace and all the wonderful residents that live here.”.
I love both economic and business growth, but I also love history. I’m very interested in keeping both alive in Harbour Grace. — Erika Pardy, economic development officer for Harbour Grace
