PROFILES IN SUCCESS: JOSIE MILLER

Posted by Daniel Sloan on Oct 26, 2016 8:20:09 AM

Josie Miller is a 2016 graduate of Trident’s Master of Science in Health Sciences program, as well as the winner of a 2016 Council of College and Military Educators (CCME) scholarship. Miller currently volunteers as a public health liaison and a mentor for an at-risk youth program in Port Orchard, WA.    

Trident: How did your experience at Trident allow you to focus on and develop your career?

Josie Miller: While attending Trident I was afforded the opportunity as a student representative to volunteer 12.5-hours of public health service for the Seattle/King County (SKC) Clinic in October 2015.  According to the SKC Team, a total of 4,010 patients (majority of which were homeless or from low income households) received over $3 million in health and dental care services.  Although I am familiar and have previous experience with community outreach programs, working as a volunteer for the SKC event presented network opportunities with fellow public health peers, as well as introductions to a variety of professional disciplines for future community health resources and opportunities.

It’s not just that Myers is also a veteran himself, it’s that he clearly understands that success as a civilian isn’t just about hard work – it’s also about having a strategy that is unique to that individual.
