Our Leaders

The heart of CountryHouse really shines through in our people. Our team members understand the difference between caring and giving care, and they’re committed to infusing our philosophy of treating people like family into everything they do.

Katie is the Executive Director at CountryHouse. She brings more than 15 years of experience in senior living to our team, and has served past roles as a CNA, MA, Lead MA, Business Director, and as an Assisted Living Manager. She joined our team in December 2022. She is a passionate leader and greatly enjoys serving seniors.

Katie is the Senior Living Consultant at CountryHouse. With 14 years of experience in real estate, she specialized in new construction before joining the CountryHouse team. During her tenure, she worked for NP Dodge and primarily Nebraska Realty. Katie holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration from UNL, with an emphasis on Accounting and Finance.

For Katie, the best part of her job is the residents. She has always had a deep appreciation for the wisdom and life experiences of the older generation. Her aspiration is to make a difference in people’s lives, helping them to truly enjoy their final years.

Katie’s journey with CountryHouse began after she met the staff and toured the community. It was a transformative experience that changed her perspective on elder care facilities. Witnessing the genuine love and care with which the staff interacted with the residents, she knew she wanted to be a part of it. Katie describes the atmosphere as feeling like a big family, a sentiment she truly believes in.

If Katie could eat only one thing, it would be pizza and her secret talent is speed reading.

Nicole is CountryHouse’s Director of Nursing. She began her health career as a CNA at the VA Med Center in Walla Walla, WA, at age 18. Years later, she moved to Omaha and continued working as a CNA while attending nursing school. She later became an LPN and has worked in skilled nursing, memory care, home health, and as a Director of Nursing at one other community prior to joining team CountryHouse. Her passion is educating nursing staff, patients and families on the disease process, and ensure those with memory loss are cared for with dignity and respect.

He takes great pride in helping people in their golden years and listening to the amazing stories of their past.

Terry enjoys doing anything outside and spending time with family. One of his favorite times was visiting Glacier National Park. If he could go anywhere for a full month, he would travel to Europe.

Ralph Juliano, III, brings more than 45 years of experience in food and nutrition to CountryHouse. Ralph joined the CountryHouse team in July 2021 and was promoted to Dining Manager just one year later.
