Our organization is guided by compassionate and experienced leaders from across the community.
Audrey Henriquez has led the Willows as Administrator since 2008. Audrey graduated from the Academy of Health Science in San Antonio, Texas with a certification in laboratory science, and served in the United States Army at Fort Polk, Louisiana and at the 394th Station Hospital in Grand Rapids, MI. Upon discharge, Audrey worked as a laboratory technician with the local health care system, while completing a Bachelor of Science in Business Management degree from Cornerstone University. Audrey then became the Director of Development for a local hospice chain, and made the decision to devote her career to caring for “the least of these” (Matthew 25:40). After graduating Summa Cum Laud from Cornerstone University with a Master’s of Science in Management degree, Audrey assumed leadership of a multidisciplinary health center that primarily served low income or migrant populations. In 2008, Audrey was offered the position of Administrator for the Willows, where she continues to serve with joy and commitment to the work of the ministry. She enjoys continuing education and recently obtained her level two Administrator’s certification and the Disney Institute certification in customer service training.
When she is not working, Audrey enjoys spending time with Daniel, her husband of 31 years. Audrey and Daniel have three adult sons, two daughter-in-law, and a house full of four-legged friends. She enjoys rescuing pets, cooking, singing on her church’s worship team, and serving on various boards and committees.
Lori Puckett joined The Willows as the Life Enrichment Director in 2006. She happily accepted a new challenge and took on the position of Associate Administrator in March of 2014. Lori has worked in Long Term Care for over twenty years in a variety of capacities including starting as a caregiver. After graduating from Lake Michigan College, she found her passion in helping those affected with Alzheimer’s and Dementia.
Lori has been a volunteer with the Alzheimer’s Association for fourteen years. She is the Support Group Leader for the Stevensville support group, and is the Chairperson for the St. Joseph Walk to End Alzheimer’s disease. Recently she was awarded the Regional Volunteer of the year award from the Alzheimer’s Association for all her hard work. Currently Lori is studying for her Level 1 Administrator’s License from Senior Living University. Lori and her family reside in Stevensville, MI.
