Katherine Peters

Katherine Peters

President & CEO

Unquestionably, Katherine’s central passion is to make a difference in the lives of other people. Establishing Comforts of Home – Care in January of 2006 was a natural fit. Starting small, hiring only six caregivers, she has grown the company to a small force of almost 300 people!

Having worked through all the office team roles herself, and even taking on a few caregiving shifts herself, Katherine understands every aspect of the company. A background in Social Work and 19 years as a self-employed hairdresser augments her natural ability to help and work with people. As the CEO, sharing her vision inspires her staff with the same passion she has to help older adults and people with disabilities.

It is Katherine’s vision and passion to provide exceptional care and go beyond her client’s expectations. Caring for her mother after she was attacked in a brutal home invasion brought the caring experience to a personal level and served to infuse her with an even greater passion to assist our vulnerable population.
