Franchisee profile: Kathy Kotowski and Dave Newland

This week we’d like to take the opportunity to share a story about two of our newest franchisees, Kathy Kotowski and Dave Newland, owners of FirstLight Home Care of Northeast Columbus in Ohio. Before becoming business partners, Kathy and Dave attended high school together but they never ran in the same circle until they reconnected via Facebook almost two years ago.

After being downsized from her job in sales management last April, Kathy was optimistic about starting a new career in the healthcare arena. Dave had been a builder in Toledo for the past 30 years but the weak economy forced him out of the struggling industry. After due diligence, the pair realized the tremendous opportunity in the rapidly growing home care industry and ultimately decided to open FirstLight together.  Located at 503 Village Park Dr. in Powell, their location services Delaware, New Albany, Powell, Lewis Center and Reynoldsburg, Ohio.

Congratulations to Kathy and Dave and best of luck on their new venture together!
