The NorthPointe Woods Leadership team has proven experience and a solid commitment to helping seniors find residential solutions that enable them to live life to the fullest. Each week in August and September, we are introducing a different team member whose leadership, dedication and welcoming presence help make NorthPointe Woods an exceptional choice for independent senior living or assisted living.

Shelly joined the NorthPointe Woods team more than 20 years ago when the community opened. She retired her 15-year residential cleaning business and took the job, perhaps most importantly because her grandparents would be living here! Since then, Shelly’s in-laws have become residents, and her parents may someday, too. According to the Director of Environmental Services, her staff’s role is to make life better for everyone. It’s clear based on her dedication to her own team and the residents, she’s doing just that.

Imagine having a chef with more than 25 years of experience and countless culinary awards to his credit, who provides not just delicious but nutritious food. That’s what residents have come to expect under the leadership of the community’s Director of Dining Services. According to Chef Greg Schiesser, “Bringing people together through food is what we do. I think they can taste that I put my heart, soul and love into it.” Regardless of dietary requirements or taste preferences, NorthPointe Woods’ executive chef always has an irresistibly tasty choice on the menu.

Since taking on the role of Director of Health Services at NorthPointe Woods, Erika, an experienced Licensed Practical Nurse, has made a difference. She’s worked closely with the nursing team to expand and enhance the health services that residents receive, as well as working to maintain exceptional quality of care. Her reasons are simple: “I have always heard great things about this community. The care staff has an exceptional reputation, but what really drew me in and inspired me to head up the team were the residents. They were so relaxed and welcoming. It felt like I was joining a family.”

Ron has been in the hospitality business his entire career. For the first 30 years, he held executive positions with a leading global hotel management company. During this time he managed new and distressed hotel properties in 10 states. Over the past seven years, he has applied that experience and knowledge to executive positions in senior living—most recently heading up operations for NorthPointe Woods. According to Ron: “I love finding solutions to the housing needs of seniors. It’s truly rewarding. The residential lifestyle options and supportive care available at NorthPointe Woods make that part of my job easier. I’ve always said: Difficult we do today. Impossible just takes a little longer. We’re here to help—today and tomorrow.”
