Pardon and Lara Dykstra eliminated Kelly Claes and Sara Hughes in the 2014 Manhattan Beach Open qualifier, the AVP debut for Claes and Hughes.

2019: Pardon formed a partnership with Karissa Cook, and in their second event together they won in Austin, the first title for both players. The duo played seven AVP tournaments together, with a third place in Seattle and just one finish below fifth. For the season nine of their 12 match losses came to teams seeded fifth or better. Pardon ended the year ranked seventh in kills (6.99 per set). The duo represented the U.S. in the Pan Am Games in Peru, winning the gold medal against two-time Olympian Ana Gallay of Argentina. Pardon and Kimberly Smith played once on the FIVB Tour, advancing from the qualifier to finish 17th in a three-star event.
2018: Pardon had four partners in her five AVP tournaments. She played twice with Terese Cannon, and once each with Brittany Tiegs, Tory Paranagua, and Aurora Davis. Pardon also had four different partners in five FIVB competitions. She played twice with Summer Nash, and once each with Lara Dykstra, Caitlin Ledoux and Tiegs. Pardon and Ledoux won a silver medal in Australia in a one-star event.
2017: Pardon played in seven AVP events with three different partners. In the season opener she played with Alix Klineman, advancing from the qualifier en route to a seventh place finish in what was Klineman's first career AVP main draw. After two more tournaments with Klineman, Pardon reunited with Brittany Tiegs for a pair of seventh-place finishes. She then ended the year playing twice with Lara Dykstra, both times advancing from the qualifier and placing 13th. Pardon and Dykstra played one even on the FIVB Tour, finishing in ninth place in a one-star event.
2016: Pardon formed a partnership with Brittany Tiegs and they played in four AVP tournaments. Twice they advanced from the qualifier and they ended the season with their best finish of fifth. 
2015: Did not compete as she suffered an injury during her collegiate season.

After losing in the qualifier in their first event, the pair advanced from the qualifier in Manhattan Beach and placed ninth after recording wins over Kelly Claes, Sara Hughes and Betsi Flint. Pardon and Dykstra won a silver medal at the FIVB Under 23 World Championships in Poland after defeating Brazil's Duda before losing in the title match to Australians Nicole Laird and Mariafe Artacho, who went on to compete in the 2016 Rio Olympics. 
2013: Pardon made her AVP debut at age 20 in Manhattan Beach with her college teammate Aurora Davis. The duo advanced from the qualifier to place 17th. Pardon teamed with Alexa Strange in the FIVB Under 21 World Championships in Croatia, placing ninth.
