Ambassador Spotlight – Erika Hardin

Erika Hardin is a realtor with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services. She is relatively new to the Myrtle Beach area. Erika started calling the Grand Strand home in June 2019.

What do you love about being a chamber ambassador?
I love getting to know more about local businesses and promoting them throughout the community.

What’s your favorite thing to do in Myrtle Beach?
Going to the beach, of course!

How did you choose your job/field of work?
I used to work for a nonprofit, so I wanted to do something totally new that brought me out of my comfort zone but still allowed me to help others.

How do you give back to the community?
I am on the Community Outreach Committee for the Coastal Carolinas Association of Realtors and we give back to our community by volunteering and donating to various events throughout the year. I also am a Reading Buddy with the Myrtle Beach Primary School.

Anything else you want to share?
I love animals and I have two dogs and a cat who are like my kids!
