Matt Mukoyama

Matt Mukoyama

Co-Owner

Matt started 1+1 Cares in 2007, when he was helping take care of his grandmother and saw an opportunity where he could provide a resource to a community that needed this service. He received his BS in accounting at California State University Sacramento and before 1+1 Cares, he worked at Symantec as a Merger and Acquisitions Finance Manager.

I wanted to create a family NOT just a company to help the community. Our family will make sure your loved ones are their top priority.” Matt said.

Matt loves to help the community as well as travel with his family and friends, and play basketball. Fun fact: He met co-Owner Ray Liu when playing basketball on the same team. They worked at Symantec together and were each other’s groomsmen.

Ray Liu

Co-Owner

According to Ray, starting 1+1 Cares was the decision to embark on a life-altering endeavor by leaving their corporate jobs to launch 1+1 Cares. He said while their previous jobs paid the bills, they now have the emotional and personal satisfaction of delivering real, tangible help to families and caregivers.

Each member of the 1+1 Cares team experienced close family members with health and lifestyle challenges. These events had profoundly lasting impacts on us, and opened our eyes to what we wanted to do and how we wanted to help,” Ray said.

Ray received his BA in Economics and Psychology at UC Davis and before 1+1 Cares also worked at Symantec as a Merger and Acquisitions Senior Project Manager. He loves to create a meaningful impact on families, caregivers, and 1+1 staff. He also enjoys learning, being around kids, and playing basketball.

We are not a company but a family. That speaks volumes,” Kanchana said.

Besides helping those in 1+1 Cares, Kanchana’s life is filled with hobbies.
