Recent UW-Green Bay graduate Lisa Miller, was born and raised on the Menominee Reservation. After high school, she began her education at the College of Menominee Nation, then continued onto NWTC and then decided to transfer to UW-Green Bay. She is one of the first to graduate from the Community Health Education program offered by UW-Green Bay.

Miller credits the flexibility of online classes to help her become even more self-sufficient and better organized. Her time at UW-Green Bay has challenged her to think boldly. “My education has challenged my perspective by becoming more aware of my surroundings and what is happening in the world. Being educated has assisted me to view situations in new perspectives and challenges me to look beyond my own space.”

As a First Generation student, she is proud to be transforming the larger region with her newly-minted degree. The benefits of a Community Health Education program include providing resources and information to people that is needed to make informed decisions regarding individual health, and the overall health of the community. “Being one of the first graduates of this program helps to pave the way for future Community Health Educators,” says Miller.

Miller credits her husband and four “wonderful” children as her biggest supporters while she completed her degree while working fulltime. “Without them, I would not have made it this far.”
