Milah has lived in the Northwest for over 30 years, in that time developing a deep appreciation for its cultural diversity, outdoor lifestyle, natural beauty and forward-thinking values. She attended Seattle Public Schools, graduating from Garfield High School, then the University of Washington for both her undergraduate and medical degrees, completing an internal medicine residency there, as well. Starting in hospital medicine, she later pivoted to outpatient primary care, and has been part-owner of an independent medical practice for nearly 5 years. Her volunteer experience includes medical support for marathon events, heart screening for youth athletes, and environmental stewardship projects with various organizations. She enjoys running with her husband and (stubborn!) Airedale Terrier, Maisie, including completing the London Marathon on behalf of “Back On My Feet,” an organization that helps to support the houseless with goals of employment and housing security through vigorous social support and advocacy. Her hopes through giving are many, but rooted in uplifting each individual to have equity in achieving their goals, and striving for balance and harmony with nature to preserve and enhance the incredible gifts of the Northwest, and the Earth more broadly, for all generations.
