My name is Julius Osorio and I am excited to accept my new position as the Director here at Wildwood Canyon Villa. I have lived in Yucaipa for the past 10 years. I started at Wildwood in June of 2014 as an administrative assistant in the middle of my college career. After attending Crafton Hills College here in Yucaipa for my general education units, I transferred to California State University, Los Angeles to pursue a Bachelor of Science in business administration with an option in human resource management. I recently graduated in December 2016 and now I look to pursue a career in human resource management.
During these past three years of my life I can say Wildwood has been a wonderful support system in my personal and professional life. Now, in return, I wish to be a support system to the community here at Wildwood as an Assistant Director! Since starting here, my passion for the senior living industry has grown exponentially and my goal is to continue to enrich the lives of our residents and staff every day.
My Name is Laurie McCracken. I’m blessed and excited to accept the position of Assistant Director and work side by side with Julius.
I live in the city of Hesperia and bought my home over 20 years. I have been blessed with 4 wonderful grandkids starting from the ages 5 to 18 from my son and daughter.
I started in senior living in 1975 and worked my way up the ladder. I have enjoyed and learned so much from our seniors. I could probably write a book about all the different seniors and their stories and families I have met over the past 47 years.
I have managed everything from independent living, assisted living, and memory care. I am passionate about being an advocate for our seniors and promoting their quality of life and preserving their dignity and health.
