Noel Larson, Maintenance Director

Noel Larson, Maintenance Director, has been HeatherWood’s own “Mr. Fixit” since 2014. Formerly a Technology Education instructor, he has taught woodworking, metalworking, electronics, small engines, auto mechanics, building trades, and more—all of which have helped him earn that title of Mr. Fixit! When not fixing things or troubleshooting problems, Noel enjoys traveling with his wife to different countries, biking, and visiting friends over a cup of coffee. The best part of his days are making our residents happy and works for smiles, hugs, and high fives.

Jere Schroeder joined the HeatherWood team in 2004 upon it’s opening. His favorite part of being on the HeatherWood team is by far the relationships he develops with the good people who live there. In his free time, Jere enjoys gardening, watching sports, and exercising. He also spends time singing in an all male chorus and volunteering at his church. Jere’s philosophy is “the harder you work, the luckier you get,” and feels very lucky indeed to spend every day with the residents at HeatherWood.
