Meet the Team
ACASA Senior Care franchise is led by a visionary executive team that is passionately committed to franchisee success
Daniel Wong, President & CEO
As the President & CEO of ACASA Senior Care, this business is personal for me. I founded ACASA Senior Care when my father and grandfather became ill in quick succession and we couldn’t find quality home care to meet their needs. I made the decision to leave the corporate world and start my own senior home care business, which has grown to become one of the largest in California. I’m proud that my business has provided me with a great life for my wife, my four children and our dog, Bruno. In my spare time, I’m an avid Sacramento Kings fan and a foodie, who enjoys cooking and trying new recipes.
Inna Wong, R.N., Vice President of Client Care
My first and most important connection to senior care is nursing, which I choose 20 years ago and throughout the years working as a nurse I learned a lot about caring for elderly. I have seen how fragile and vulnerable they are, but yet they have lots of strength build up throughout the years that shape them who they are today. To me is heartwarming to see what impact we make in their day to day living at such an important stage of their lives.
I am happily married for 10 years and have 2 children and a dog. I enjoy traveling with my family to learn about other cultures and spend time with my kids. They have taught me a lot about how to be the person I am today.
John Wong, Vice President of Brand Development
I have a deep connection with senior care because I am dealing with it every day with my 96-year-old grandmother. What families are going through when they talk about their loved ones and the struggle for independence that loved ones deal with while needing help at home is something I understand deeply. The reason I got into this industry is that I saw the opportunity to work in an industry that truly helps families through an emotional time. I’m happily married and have a half whippet/half wiener dog named Joey, I’m also a diehard Sacramento Kings, New York Giants, New York Mets since the age of 7.
Michele Fuhrman, Director of Operations
My connection with senior care started when I was blessed to be right there, next to my mother as she passed away. Everyone around us is aging…. We need to be ok with it, appreciate it, celebrate it and help those who are struggling along the way. I’m glad I get to be a part of that process. I’m the mom to three amazing humans and three little critters. I have two daughters ages 23 & 21 and a son, who is 18. As far as the critters, I have a dog, a cat and a baby turtle. In my free time, I enjoy crafting, listening to music and reading good books.
Vaughn Davis, Vice President of Franchise Development
The changing age demographics in America is undeniable. The average lifespan is now 78 years old. Rising healthcare costs make long-term hospital stays and senior living facilities unaffordable. Home Care provides a viable alternative for many families as we confront the difficulties of caring for both our parents and our children simultaneously. Home Care is a competitive and profitable industry that is only going to grow. I live in New York City with my wife, daughter and our puppy. I love to travel and experience different societies, cultures, and foods. Having future trips planned brings me joy and gives me something to work towards.
Dan Oen, Manager of Branding & Marketing
As a veteran marketing executive, I’m proud to be a part of the ACASA Senior Care family. I’ve been passionate about senior care ever since I was a child when my mother opened our house to take care of a family friend. I have fond memories of making his meals, and talking to him was a real treat. When I was in 8th grade, he gave me a book, “The Chemistry of Powder and Explosives” … the perfect gift for a 13-year-old boy! I’m the proud father of two children. I currently live in Sacramento with my girlfriend where I am currently learning how to graft fruit trees.
Kathryn Wijaya, Franchise Support Executive
My connection with senior care started when I transitioned from teaching preschool-aged children to advocating for the rights of residents living in long term care facilities. Seniors are a vulnerable population and I got into senior care to fight for their rights and provide person-centered care. Aging at home provides a sense of safety and comfort. I joined the ACASA team to be a part of a team that offers options to seniors in need of assistance other than being placed in a facility. In my spare time, I enjoy volunteering at my church.
