Kristin Kane is the owner of two Comfort Keepers franchises. She and her husband Michael purchased the businesses in July 2017, shortly after their 2016 move to South Carolina. Both Kristin and Michael worked in the corporate world, having lived in New York, England and Switzerland. They recently celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary and are parents to three teenage boys (Ethan, Ryan and Brendan). Their Golden Retriever, Lucy, joined the family in 2018!
"When I heard the "Elevating the Human Spirit" tagline, I immediately thought of how I feel when I "pay it forward". It resonated with me. The concept is more than simply providing everyday care; it is an expression of how that care is delivered. Weaving this message into everything we do is what sets Comfort Keepers apart."

Providing quality and safe care that is tailored to individual needs requires solid groundwork built on trust. Jen's success is attributed to her compassion, commitment and communication.
