Ellen Parker


I grew up in Calgary – inner city Kensington - a vibrant community full of interesting people and businesses. I spent an abundance of time with my family in the prairies and the mountains - I absolutely love Alberta. I work in PR- communications, and this career allows me to meet so many interesting Albertans and businesses. I spent ten years working primarily in the non-profit sector in Calgary, learning about the various needs of the less-fortunate at the Calgary Food Bank, exploring the world of literary arts with WordFest and expanding my musical horizons and skills in fund development with the CPO. I then moved to NYC and honed my skills in agency work, working for celebs and local boutique PR firms. Last year I partnered with a colleague and started my own PR firm, Parker Bond PR. We have clients primarily in Calgary, but also work with firms in Toronto, Halifax and Vancouver. I always come back to my experiences in Alberta when looking for inspiration to enhance client experiences with regards to events, marketing and communications. In addition, I am so proud to raise my two boys in the beautiful part of Canada. This is why I love Alberta. Started
