A Message From Our Owners: Corey & Alyssa Rowe
I grew up in a small town outside of Barrie Ontario, an hour north of Toronto, in a very tight knit family and community. I learned at a young age that family, friends, helping people and having a sense of community was very important to me.
After graduating from Carleton University, in Ottawa Ontario, with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology (Honours), I moved to Calgary Alberta. I soon found myself working in the world of senior care, at Comfort Keepers Calgary and was astounded by how much I loved it and how fulfilling it was.
Over the next six years, I worked with the team at Comfort Keepers, I was given a place to truly shine; I was able to help seniors and their families, support the community and make connections and memories that would be with me for the rest of my life.
Recently, my husband, Corey, and I decided to move back to Ontario to support our family; who have been struggling with numerous complex medical concerns. We knew we wanted to stay within the Comfort Keepers family, which is why we decided to purchase the Comfort Keepers Peterborough Franchise.
Corey, who has worked in the banking industry traditionally, has jumped on board and is ecstatic to be a part of this adventure with me! He enjoys camping, reading, spending time with his many nieces and nephews across Ontario and researching just about any topic.
Living and working in Peterborough has been a blessing; it’s a very vibrant, patient, caring and beautiful community. We are both very excited to get to know the residents living here and give back to the community that has already done so much for us both in the short time we have lived here.
I look forward to the humid Ontario summers, while Corey does not; he enjoys the cold winters. We both enjoy spending time outdoors; we love hiking, walking, cycling, watching movies, spending valuable time with family and friends and playing with our new kitten Bill; he is currently 3 months old.
We look forward to meeting and making connections with the wonderful people in our new community. A community we are very happy to call our home.
