Kat Miller, a retired colonel with 34 years of service in the Army, was appointed the director for the Nevada Office of Veterans Services.
Miller was appointed by Gov. Brian Sandoval after former director Caleb Cage joined the governor’s office.
Miller moves up from the deputy executive director position to lead the agency.
“This is a great opportunity to be of service to the State of Nevada and to our veterans, families, and survivors. I am honored to accept this responsibility and appreciate the confidence of the governor in this appointment,” Miller said.
Miller spent much of her service as a military police officer, serving as brigade commander in Afghanistan. As NOVS executive director, she will oversee the operations of the Southern and Northern Nevada Veterans Cemeteries, the Nevada State Veterans Home and the Veterans Service Outreach Program.
The NOVS deputy executive director’s position will be filled by U.S. Air Force veteran Willette Gerald, who served as a non-commissioned officer from 1975-95. Originally from Montgomery, Ala., Gerald served as an Air Force superintendent of personnel and was stationed in several countries throughout the Pacific Asian rim as well as stateside.
