Plenty of ex­pe­ri­ence

The Compass - - EDITORIAL - FROM A8

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.

Set­tling in

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
