Before buying Townsend House Assisted Living in 2008, Mike had already bought renovated and started two 6 bed Assisted Living Facilities in Chico.  Mike began his healthcare journey as a Home Health Aide providing personal care to seniors in and around the Boston area.

 Mike decided this was the path for him and went back to college and  received his A.A. in Occupational Therapy Assisting in Boston in 1996 and decided to come west. 

On his first assignment he met his beautiful wife America, a Speech and Language Pathologist. Due to the shortage of therapists Mike and America had the opportunity to work and live up and down the state of California.  Mike was the Rehab Manager for the therapy department of a large community in Santa Barbara where the focus was rehabilitating Seniors in a Skilled Nursing Facility.  Mike and America also have worked in Rehabilitation Hospitals, Home Health, and numerous Skilled Nursing Facilities
