our CARE team

Steve Levy

founder

Throughout his career, Steve has provided companies with executive-level leadership that is focused on growth or new market entry. He holds a degree in Management from California State University, Fullerton, and has more than 30 years of experience in executive leadership positions that span the high-tech industry to the alternative energy markets. With a history of successful experience and business acumen, combined with a long-term passion for coaching and developing high-performance teams, Steve brings both leadership perspective as well as operational excellence to companies seeking to take that next step in growth. He served in leadership roles with high tech SaaS-based companies, including five early phase companies, prior to a 10+ year career in the renewable energy markets with clean energy companies. Most recently, he worked with Enel X and their EaaS software platform.⠀

In late 2019, Steve chose a path to provide home care services for those in need. Having taken in his mother-in-law in 2018, he quickly began to see the need for a deeper empathy towards our seniors in need. While researching several investments, including launching one of his own, he chose to partner with the leader in home healthcare, AmeriCare, and purchased the rights to the Silicon Valley area.⠀

Steve has lived in Morgan Hill for over 20 years and has watched the sleepy town grow over time. With this growth came challenges for the community. The healthcare services provided by the city were being stretched to new levels and the focus on healthcare was having a difficult time keeping up with the growth. From his desire to help others, he opened AmeriCare Silicon Valley in Morgan Hill to service all of Santa Clara County. This is his way of making a difference- by providing needed care to the community.⠀

Steve’s passions are spending as much time as he can with his granddaughter, working with like-minded visionaries who can see what the future will need, helping drive solutions, and providing more home care based services to meet the challenges of tomorrow that families are facing today.

Camilla Troquato

manager, caregiver recruitment
&
onboarding

Camilla utilizes her organizational and communicative skills to oversee office operations and caregiver relations on behalf of AmeriCare Silicon Valley. She ensures the company operates smoothly and efficiently in her handling of caregiver inquiries, consultations, and timely access to services. By analyzing the individual needs of clients and matching those to the appropriate caregivers, Camilla secures the provision of expert-level service. She recognizes that beyond caring for their physical needs, caregivers are helping our clients achieve fulfillment and overall well-being in their lives.⠀

Camilla is an active member of the community. She volunteers her time at Stanford Healthcare as a Patient Navigator, and also at The Humane Society of San Jose where she enhances the lives of two-legged and four-legged friends alike.⠀

Travel also plays a major role in Camilla’s life, which began at just 6 weeks old when she was first introduced to her family in England- a trip she continues to make annually. More recently, her travels have taken her to Canada, Central America, and Hawaii.⠀

When she is not volunteering or traveling, Camilla enjoys being outdoors exploring new hiking trails, spending time by the ocean, and partaking in family activities.⠀

Currently, her desire lies in gathering the knowledge and skills that are specific to this arm of the healthcare industry to become a subject matter expert within the company. As an example of developing this skill, she is currently researching various processes in relation to best practices as a way to increase her performance and contributions. Camilla received a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Communication and Public Affairs, and a minor in Business Management Studies from California State University, Chico. She continues to challenges herself to exceed through advanced education and aspires to obtain an M.S. in healthcare.

Kristine Bray

manager, client relations

Kristine has a heart for healthcare which dates as far back as she can remember. She comes from a family of doctors and nurses, including a mom who was a nurse and had the ability to fix every “boo boo.” This passion ultimately compelled Kristine to receive a Bachelor of Science in nursing herself which she uses to contribute to healthcare by consulting with nurses and other professionals in business development. During college, Kristine gained hands-on experience working on the acute care floors in the hospitals, not only managing care given to patients but gaining a keen insight and understanding of the patients’ needs and continuing education while at home following discharge.

Kristine uses this insight to maintain a successful career in healthcare consulting and business development. Some of her career highlights to date include streamlining processes and creating more effective and efficient workflows, establishing trust, and building relationships while collaborating with clinicians of various roles within the healthcare system. She develops successful strategies in healthcare business development by assessing individuals’ needs and implementing tactics appropriately. She also has a compassionate heart that longs to serve the community in the way of being there for those at their most vulnerable, which many people can pick up on within the first conversations.

Kristine has also spent a couple of years working as a caregiver herself for private families before moving into business development. This experience included providing care for her grandfather and helping him with daily activities as his dementia and Alzheimer’s progressed. She was able to see firsthand the difference that patient-centered, compassionate care makes in an individual and family’s life.

Kristine is a Bay Area native who grew up in the Willow Glen community in the heart of Silicon Valley and recently moved back to the South Bay after spending several years in San Francisco. Kristine is fascinated with local history and volunteers as a docent with History San Jose. She also served as a foster parent to furry friends with Muttville leading to the adoption of her own chihuahua. Her greatest joy, however, comes from spending time with her daughter where she gets to show her all the hidden gems of our local community and much, much more.
