Dan and Ceylan Rowe
Dan Rowe, Co-Founder and Visionary of Rowe Reptiles, has always wanted a reptile building since he was a young boy. Now that his dreams are fulfilled he wants to share his love of reptiles with the community. When Dan isn’t in the reptile building he is at Wayfair as a Systems Engineer. His love of technology and reptiles helped create a modern and high tech reptile facility. Dan also is the Vice-President of the New England Herpetological Society.
Ceylan Rowe, Co-Founder and supporter of the visionary, is passionate about gender equality and has spent the past 26 years advocating for girls locally and globally. Ceylan is eager to provide access to herpetology to girls of all ages. When Ceylan isn’t helping with Rowe Reptiles, she is running her business Trendy Napkin, a Commissioner for the MetroWest Commission on the Status of Women in Massachusetts and an MBA candidate at Babson.
Dan and Ceylan met at Northeastern University and Ceylan was given warning of Dan’s love of reptiles. Married for over 12 years they created Rowe Reptiles with their two children.
Adam Landry, fellow Eagle Scout and supporter of the visionary, has been involved with Scouting since a very early age. He is excited to work with Dan to help break the stigma around reptiles and bring the love of reptiles to a whole new generation of children and their parents. When not helping the Rowe's, Adam can be found hanging from the walls at the local rock climbing gym or hiking around the local trails teaching his Scout pack how to identify the local fauna.
