Bernard P. Capulong
President and CEO
Bernard was born in the Philippines and at a young age, his father's dream was to come to America. That dream came true and his family eventually settled in a little town outside of Portland, Oregon. "Growing up in a Filipino home is common to have two to three generations living under the same roof. Our culture instills in us the values of living with and taking care of our grandparents. So, it was natural for me to get into the home care industry," said Bernard.
Bernie pursued a career in Accounting which eventually landed him his first sales career. He realized he found his calling...until God got a hold of him. He rose to new heights where he spent over 24 years in the financial software industry, parlaying his accounting background.
God eventually started knocking at his door and urged him to move to Phoenix. Bernie continued where he left off and eventually finished his education and also graduated from the University of Phoenix and earned his Bachelor's Degree in Business Management. Armed with the power of knowledge and a new-found desire to enrich his academic prowess, he went on to graduate with an MBA from an east coast Catholic school the Franciscan University of Steubenville.
Remember God's calling? While he was pursuing his bachelor's degree, the Capulong's stumbled across a home care company that was looking for new ownership. Without any experience in the industry, they put their trust in God and the rest was history.
"There isn't one day I don't thank Our Lord Jesus Christ for finding me a career, rich with God's perfect providence, that yields spiritual rewards as the home care industry does," says Bernard.
CHC is going on its thirteenth-year serving the greater Phoenix West.
