Our Leadership Team

Lisa Doyle

Executive Director

Lisa Doyle

I joined the Peterborough Retirement team in 2014, and am the Executive Director (ED).

I have many years of health care experience in a variety of settings. My background in nursing has been very valuable in transitioning to the ED role. I am calm and approachable in nature and use this in my leadership skills to guide and support the team.

Prior to joining the community in 2014, I held the position of General Manager for ten years in retirement residences in Peterborough and Port Hope. I have held many nursing roles in hospital, long term care and in the community. I attended Loyalist College and was the recipient of an Honors Award.

I was born in Peterborough and despite moving away at a young age, my husband and I have since moved back and made the Peterborough area our home. We have three grown children and a grandson. I enjoy scuba diving, travelling, boating, gardening, ballroom dancing and healthy living.

Claire Williams

Director of Wellness

Claire Williams

I joined the Peterborough Retirement team in December 2015 as the Director of Wellness (DOW). Peterborough Retirement provides a continuum of care uncommon to most homes, with an Enhanced Care Area. This, combined with its long-standing reputation in the community, creates a warm, welcoming environment where I am excited to be able to bring my enthusiasm and experience to the team.

Prior to joining the team, I worked as a Director of Wellness in several retirement communities in Toronto and Lindsay. Each experience allowed me the opportunity to learn and enhance my abilities and skills. My passion is working with seniors. I love the work I do, and am grateful for the opportunity to provide excellent service and care to the residents, families and associates.

I was born in Burlington and was raised in Waterdown, Ontario. I live in Peterborough with my husband and daughter. I enjoy spending time with my family, and when free time allows I enjoy reading and playing the piano.
