In this episode, I speak with a truly inspiring and innovative woman, Erika Shae. She is one of Cape Breton's leading ladies. She is currently the CEO and President of New Dawn Enterprises, a private and volunteer-directed business dedicated to community building. With multiple streams, including homecare, Meals on Wheels, an immigration centre, a centre for the arts, and more, Erika is dedicated to making Cape Breton a flourishing and growing community.
Originally from Ontario, Erika now resides in Mira Gut with her partner, two children, and a flock of chickens. She has lived in big cities all over the country but finds comfort in calling the Island home and being surrounded by the ocean.
I am looking forward to sharing Erika's story from big city to small town. She is leading so many exciting projects in the community to help bring new life to Cape Breton Island. I hope you enjoy the interview and finish feeling inspired!
