Karen Miles, RN
Center Nurse Executive

I graduated from NHTI in 1994 with an associate’s degree in nursing, and was hired by Genesis HealthCare to work at Country Village Center in Lancaster, NH that same year, which gives me too many years to count of nursing experience.  I was originally hired as a unit manager, was promoted to Nurse Practice Educator which I did for about 15 years, then became the Director of Nursing (CNE) 2 years ago, which is the position I took here at Mountain Ridge Center.  I moved to the lakes region from Lancaster to be closer to my children and grandchildren, who all live in this area.  I enjoy eldercare because in many ways the staff are family to our residents, and family cares for one another, enriching everyone’s life.
