Our Home Care Team
I feel a love, passion and dedication for Seniors and their families and have a strong desire to help them find qualified and loving care for their elderly or chronically ill family members. I have been extremely blessed as I absolutely love what I am doing now and so grateful I made the heartfelt and strategic decision to fulfill my “purpose” and open Gentle Shepherd Home Care.
Kathy Miller | Owner & CEO
As the passionate Founder and CEO of Gentle Shepherd Home Care, LLC a Home Care (non-medical) business which serves seniors and the chronically ill in Colorado Springs and surrounding areas. I founded Gentle Shepherd Home Care in 2016 because I am “that family” with elderly parents and in-laws. Like many families, my search to find qualified, compassionate, and qualified caregivers for my loved ones proved to be a huge challenge. I feel a love, passion and dedication for Seniors and their families and have a strong desire to help them find qualified and loving care for their elderly or chronically ill family members. Based on my 32- year experience as an Executive leader within the Staffing Industry I was confident I could provide compassionate, passionate, and highly qualified caregivers to assist families just like mine with care for their loved ones. My “Mee Maw” lived to be 97 years old and was the inspiration for starting Gentle Shepherd Home Care. In 2016, I made the heartfelt and strategic decision to fulfill my “purpose” and opened Gentle Shepherd Home Care. I have been extremely blessed as I absolutely love what I am doing. Gentle Shepherd has won “Best of the Springs” four years in a row including 2021. We also won a National Award as “Employer of Choice” by Home Care Pulse.
Throughout my career, I have served in many leadership roles and been an innovative organizational leader with expertise in transforming and building results driven teams.
I began my career as a graduate of Southern Methodist University with a BBA degree in Accounting/Finance. After earning my degree, I worked in the Banking/Mortgage Industry as CPA for the first twelve years of my career. From there I moved to Sales and Marketing within the staffing industry and finished my corporate career as a Vice President with Adecco, a Global Fortune 500 Staffing company.
I have served on various boards and most recently as President of the Board for the Senior Resource Council a prominent non-profit in Colorado Springs which serves the senior industry. Most recently was asked to join the University of Colorado Advisory Board for the Leeds School of Business. Additionally, served our community through extensive involvement in the Alzheimer’s Association and Go Red for Women (American Heart Association).
Scott Miller | Owner & President
Scott is a veteran of the U.S. Air Force. After serving in the Air Force, he worked for Hewlett Packard for 31 years in the IT industry. The most interesting time of Scott’s time with HP is his 3 years’ working at the C.I.A. in Washington D.C. Scott also holds a Bachelors of Science degree.
Scott and Kathy started Gentle Shepherd Home Care in 2016, which also began Scott’s career in Senior Care. They wanted to do something more to help our community by bringing compassion, support, and value to those individuals that need care to stay in their own homes. As the owner, Scott may be a little biased, but he and Kathy strive (and succeed) to make their company more welcoming and open to all employees that work for us. They treat everyone with dignity and respect, creating a more open environment where all employees feel empowered.
When Scott is not in the office, he loves to build anything out of wood. He built a 48’x48′ horse barn from scratch, without any drawings or plans, to house the family horses. Scott also enjoys hiking, camping and anything else outdoors.
I really love helping seniors, and their families, figure out how to get care for a loved one in need. Although we may all think we know what to do, and how to do it, we are all not necessarily equipped to provide the enhanced care that our elderly community need.
While caring for my mom, I realized the need for quality Caregivers for the senior population. I love helping those in a time of need and making sure our seniors are cared for the way I would care for my own family.
