Katie Davis

Owner and Administrator

Born and raised in Poquoson, VA, Katie has very fond memories of her time with her dad and uncle out on the water crabbing and enjoying the beautiful Chesapeake Bay. She graduated from Longwood University with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and subsequently earned her Master of Public Administration degree with an emphasis in Health Care Management.

Katie spent seven years with a home care agency, in Fredericksburg, VA, providing geriatric care management and serving on its core leadership team. She was instrumental to it receiving “Best of the Burg” recognition as the Best Home Care Agency in the Fredericksburg area for 2022. Katie spent the last 14 years serving individuals who require support to continue living successfully in their homes, or in a community setting with additional care. Katie specializes in care coordination for clients who live with end-of-life disease processes such as dementia, Parkinson’s disease, ALS, congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder, and cancer. Katie’s passion leads her to journey together with families to educate them about resources in the community that ultimately allows their time spent with loved ones to be more meaningful. Katie’s heart for hospice care drives her love for educating families and connecting them with palliative or hospice care resources, to ensure their loved one experiences dignity during their journey.

Katie and her husband, Stuart, have three young children and care for Katie’s parents in the same home. She knows the home care journey and her personal experience gives her a greater understanding and perspective as she leads our Care Team. Katie loves coaching and mentoring our team as they serve our community.

Katie is active in her church and enjoys serving on the audio/visual team there. When she finds the rare “down” time, Katie enjoys walking her dogs, music, cooking, and reading. One of Katie’s favorite activities is traveling the East Coast with her Father to attend concerts by Christian music artists.
With a significant family history of full and partial hearing impairment, Katie finds her own hearing impairment gives her valuable first-hand experience of working with individuals with physical disabilities.

Peter Getts

Owner and Business Manager

Born in Michigan but raised all over the world as the son of an Air Force chaplain, Peter then moved his own family around the world during his 20 years in the Air Force as a logistics professional. During those 20 years, Peter specialized in supply chain management, aircraft maintenance, and budgeting.

 In 2002, Peter moved to Virginia and settled down for the first time.  Peter served as the Controller for the Hanover County Community Services Board for eight years and then co-founded and led an award-winning home care agency located in Fredericksburg, VA for 10 years.

As the son of medically challenged, aging parents, Peter recognized the tremendous need for quality, compassionate services for seniors.  He and Katie decided to partner in starting Journey Together Home Care in Hanover County to bring the same level of outstanding care to the Greater Richmond area. 

 Peter’s faith is especially important to him.  He actively serves his church in Fredericksburg and enjoys the occasional overseas mission trip to assist health care organizations in South Sudan develop and improve their services.

 Peter and his wife Mary are the proud parents of 6 children and grandparents of 15. They love the Fredericksburg area and enjoy walks downtown, hikes in the mountains, and kayaking on the Rappahannock.  But nothing compares to those young grandkids!
