MILWAUKEE, WI — Eppstein Uhen Architects (EUA) welcomes Katie Miller as Engagement Specialist for the Learning Studio. Miller brings 22 years of experience in community engagement to her role and will use her communication skills to foster strong teams and partnerships for K12 school districts. Eric Dufek, Learning Environments Studio Director comments, “We are excited to have Katie on our team. Her energy and communications skills will be an asset to EUA, our school districts and stakeholders.”
In her EUA role as Engagement Specialist, Miller will help school districts build transparent and trusting relationships with their constituencies. Her collaborative approach and first-hand knowledge of the referendum process will add to EUA’s Learning Studio and support the firm’s mission of designing environments that elevate people’s potential.
“I believe that the relationships school districts build with the stakeholders remain long after a referendum is complete and the facility built. Architecture is an important part of creating connected and engaged communities and I’ve found people are more likely to cherish a place if they've contributed toward its creation. Joining EUA gives me the opportunity to use my experience in bringing people together to create facilities that impact our communities in such a meaningful way.”
Miller comes to EUA after five years with the Oconomowoc Chamber of Commerce as Executive Director, building strong partnerships between community organizations and area businesses. Previous experience includes working with the Medical College of Wisconsin on a national research study for which Miller was responsible for strategy development, study promotion and community engagement throughout Waukesha County.
