Nurse practitioner enjoying work at Kno-Ho-Co

| February 7, 2015

COSHOCTON – Sarah Miley’s passion for serving the community and working in the public health field brought her to Coshocton County this summer.

Miley is the nurse practitioner for the Kno-Ho-Co-Ashland Community Action Commission Family Planning Program at all three of its locations. There are clinics in Ashland and Mt. Vernon and locally in Coshocton at 120 N. Fourth St.

“I love the patients and the variety of them,” Miley said.

The clinic offers a range of services including: Well women exams, birth control, testing and treatment of sexually transmitted infections for men and women, pregnancy testing and can point women in the right direction to receive prenatal care. Anyone can seek assistance from the clinic, but its goal is to serve the economically disadvantaged and uninsured. However, they do not turn anyone away and will work with all insurances.

“I enjoy working with an underserved population and helping women in need,” Miley said.

She’s worked at the community health level for nine years and was trained for her current job by Patti Sprang. Sprang has been a nurse practitioner with Kno-Ho-Co for a number of years and will continue to work with the agency by providing specialty services.

“She’s my mentor and my friend and took me under her wing,” Miley said. “She groomed me for the job.”

The staff also includes Tina Moran, nurse manager; Ashley Thomas, LPN; and Kelly Corrigan, program administrator.

“I’d really like to build the practice and increase our client load,” Miley said.
