Lisa Lynn

Director of Wellness

Lisa has lived in Michigan all her life and started off in banking while taking classes towards her nursing degree. She switched gears for a bit to pursue the banking world and obtained an Associates degree in Applied Science. Later down the road Lisa married and had her 2 children Ethan and Makayla. Lisa realized her passion was always nursing and went back to school to obtain her LPN from Athena in Toledo, Ohio as the waiting list in Michigan was very long. She worked for a company that gave her many opportunities to advance in her career while continuing to go to school online and obtain her RN degree. Lisa credits her knowledge she’s obtained thus far to her success with Pomeroy.

Sherry Howe

Sales and Marketing Director

Sherry grew up in both Michigan and Wisconsin, and still has family in both states. In her free time she enjoys kayaking, cooking & baking, and playing with her beloved pups, Scout & Emma. Much like our residents, on cold winter days she can be found leaning over a jigsaw puzzle with a glass of wine. Prior to working in Senior Living, she spent 25 years in Hotel & Hospitality Sales. She enjoyed many adventures during this time and never dreamed she would end up switching gears. When the pandemic changed the world, she found an opportunity at an independent community in the Flint area. It didn’t take her long to realize she had found a new passion. She joined the Pomeroy team in June of 2021, and has felt right at home since!


Lorene Strong

Leasing Assistant

Lorene joined the Pomeroy Living Orion Team on Day 1 in 2017. Living locally, she witnessed the community being built and knew that she had to become a part of this family.

Being a resident of such a close knit town like Lake Orion since 1996, Lorene is still amazed at the various connections that she has within the Senior Living Community.

Prior to being at Pomeroy Living, Lorene worked as a dental assistant for 30 years, including a Lake Orion Dentist for the last 15 years. Although she saw hundreds of patients at the office, her favorite patients were always the seniors. They had a way of brightening up her day, and she felt that she made a difference in theirs.

Speaking of seniors, after residing in Wisconsin for over 65 years, Lorene’s father moved in with Lorene and her husband in July, 2022. Since she was born and raised in Wisconsin, Lorene’s roots are hard to hide on Sundays while cheering with her father for their beloved Packers.

The joy of Lorene’s life is her family, especially her 3 grandchildren.


Melissa Houston

Activity Director

Melissa graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Gerontology from Madonna University. As an extension of that degree, Melissa obtained an Activity Therapy Certificate, as well as a Dementia Care Certificate. She continued her education by then becoming a certified Dementia Practitioner. For over 20 years, Melissa has been fulfilling the lives of her residents daily through her positive attitude and life enrichment activities.

Her love for the senior population came from quality time spent with her grandpa and the mentoring he provided. She cherishes all the memories, including driving her to and from school, and basketball practice, and of course attending all her basketball games. Eventually the roles were reversed when Melissa became his transportation, taking grandpa wherever he needed to go.

Living in Lake Orion, Melissa saw Pomeroy Living Orion being built and knew it would be an incredible experience working with the seniors and making a difference in the lives of everyone in the community where she lives.
