Meet Our Administrator!

Hello Everyone,

I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself, and my two officemates pictured with me. My name is Karah Appleget and as of February 14th, 2020 I have had the pleasure of being Norwalk Nursing and Rehabilitation Community’s Administrator. My two officemates are Millie and Rufus. Millie is a Miniature Goldendoodle and she’s a year old. Rufus is a Miniature Yorkie and he just celebrated his 16th birthday! You will see them both around the facility keeping residents and staff company. 

I am originally a Sigourney, IA native, I started my career as a CNA when I was sixteen years old. After working on the floor in a direct care role, I realized I had a passion for long term care and felt that it was my calling to pursue a career in administration. I decided to further my education at the University of Northern Iowa and obtained a B.S. in Gerontology- Long Term Care Administration. I have spent the last 2.5 years as the Administrator at a facility in Nevada, IA. 

If you take away anything from this letter, it’s very important to me that you know that I have an open door policy. Anytime you have a praise, concern or problem, I am only a visit or phone call away. Whether you are a resident, employee or family member, I truly want your experience at Norwalk Nursing and Rehab Community to not only meet but exceed your expectations. Thank you for welcoming me to the facility thus far. It is greatly appreciated! If there is anything you need from me, please let me know. I will be glad to help in any way I can.

Karah Appleget, LNHA
Administrator
