To provide the most trusted and qualified caregiving to our clients. We are Here to Care.™, to improve quality of life, and to bring comfort, happiness, and peace of mind to all of our clients.
Care that enables people to maintain or expand their capacity for living.
a new kind of CARE

our CARE team
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.
