Kathy and her husband Scott discovered Concierge Home Services when they were looking for a service to check on their home and pets when they were on vacation. They were excited to find that their area had the opportunity for a franchise partner. Their service area includes Kanata, Stittsville, Carp, West Carleton, and Richmond.Kathy's background includes 7 years as a registered nurse. She started a home-based embroidery business, and added a mobile sign franchise that gave her the flexibility to be available for her 3 young children. Although the kids are now grown, two are still at home, which suits her just fine. More recently, Kathy managed the bakery at the local village café, but missed the challenges and rewards of entrepreneurship.Her interests are food (cooking, eating, researching, and even grocery shopping), exercise (to combat her love of food), and travel (to check out the regional food scene). She enjoys time with her family, and walks with her dog, Charlie.Scott was born and raised in south Ottawa and moved to the west end to work and raise a family. In 1985 Scott joined the Ottawa Police Service where he would serve the community for the next 30 years. During his career Scott had the opportunity to work in patrol operations, forensics, and major event planning, and finished his career leading a talented team in human resources.Scott’s interests are food (whatever Kathy is creating!), home renovation projects, and travel. Scott loves being surrounded by family and good wine.
