Judy Dyke

President & Founder

Judy lives in Huntingdon Valley, PA.  She is married to Robert Dyke  and has two sons, Eric and Carl.  Judy has a BS in Education and is a certified dog trainer.  Judy is also the Founder and President of the Women of Willow Grove, a not-for-profit organization. Currently she manages the group and an Artisan Collective at the Willow Grove Park Mall.

“My passion for animals, providing the best care for them has moved me to start a nonprofit rescue/sanctuary. A place where creatures of this earth can find a safe life, live out their life or find a loving family that wants to take them home. I also love to help people connect with other people and find joy in their lives, therefore creating the retreat part of my dream. The retreat will be a place where one person; a person and child or friend; or an entire family can come to rejuvenate and find purpose – to have a symbiotic relationship with nature and animals. My vision is very big, but my heart is even bigger!”

Eric Dyke

Vice President

Eric has been part of HRAR since the very first meeting held at Judy’s house in the summer of 2017. Currently serving as Vice President, he started his role with the organization as the board’s secretary.

Eric has a BS in Electrical Engineering from Drexel. He also has four years of formal yoga training. He lives in Willow Grove with his best dog friend, Chuck.

“This organization presents an awesome opportunity to give back to others and to create something beautiful.  I have enjoyed being a part of this adventure so far and am excited to see what the future holds. I eagerly await the day we can open the doors of our retreat center!”

I have worked in the field of accounting for 32 years, the last 18 at John T. Durkin & Company. I love sports especially skiing with my entire family. During my life I have had 10 dogs including several rescues. It’s so hard to watch stories about animals in need. When I found out about Harmony I thought this would be a good opportunity to help.
