Meet our office team who are dedicated to providing you with the best care possible.
President & CEO
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.

“I am really excited about meeting new people and all the interaction,” says Erin on becoming the Community Liaison. “I love the company, love what it stands for, and love what we do. I’m excited to share that with people and to see it grow.”
From their life stories to all they have done and accomplished, the seniors she has worked with continue to inspire Erin. “They deserve to be treated with respect by allowing them as much independence as possible.”
Growing up on a farm in Boissevain, Manitoba, Erin brings a fun energy to the Comforts team, and her positive, upbeat attitude keeps her moving forward.

“I lead with my heart, always searching for a better way to help,” Kimberley says. She has a soft spot in her heart for seniors — her grandmother passed away in March 2017 at 97 years old, and Kimberley fondly talks about her as a loving, funny, and filter-free character.
Kimberley lived in various cities in Ontario before moving to Winnipeg in 1997. She has a BA in English/Theatre, took Leadership Training at Ryerson University, and did Training & Development at Red River College.

Shan’s role at Comforts of Home – Care is an Human Resources. She hires all our amazing caregivers.
Since joining us in January 2011, her background with our company has also included working in Human Resources and as an office manager — she’s a real team player, which balances beautifully with her independent streak!
Watching her own mother age and become more dependent on others has given Shan a soft spot in her heart for seniors and their families. Her sincere desire to help other people and her caring nature makes her an important part of our team.
Born and raised in southern Manitoba, Shan spent 2 years at Briercrest Bible College and moved to Winnipeg in 2002. Shan brings with her 12 years of experience in the Home Care industry and started working as a companion in the community with seniors, before moving on to administrative and HR duties.
Billing/Payroll & Staff Coordinator
Having started her career in nursing, Shannon is uniquely qualified for her role with Comforts of Home – Care: she worked as a travel nurse, which put her in many different situations from hospitals to care homes to client homes. “I can relate to exactly what one of our caregivers will go through in their career with COHC,” says Shannon. “I also had to arrange home-care for family members, so I understand how it is to be on the other side.” If you ask Shannon she will tell you that her role seems custom fit to her experiences.
Shannon was born in Manitoba. She started out as a rural girl and now has made her home in Winnipeg.
A devoted worker with a kind and empathetic heart, Quinn has a positive outlook on life and makes clients and caregivers alike feel more at ease.
Quinn understands firsthand how challenging it can be for seniors to not have their independence: her own grandmother was in a personal care home but had no caregiver to fill the hours. Her favourite memory is taking her out for her favourite meal of Chinese food. Sometimes the everyday moments are the ones that mean the most!
Born and raised right here in Winnipeg, Quinn brings to Comforts of Home – Care a variety of diplomas, including Community Support Worker, commercial baking, and training in CPR, NVCI, and MHF
“Anything that’s a good match for me, in turn I become the best match for them! I try my best to help the company grow and succeed,” Veronica says. She also brings to the table experience as a trained medical office assistant and certified advocate for low-income people.
Seniors play an important role in Veronica’s life. She has wonderful memories of her grandfather teaching her to play Snooker when she was just nine years old, and of the two of them often spending time together at Assiniboia Downs—which has now become her favourite place to to go on weekends.
“Our elders have so much knowledge to pass on… I wish more people took the time to listen and absorb what they have to say. I love listening to their life stories!”
