Letters from the AEROSHIP: Program Manager Kaleena Miller Introduces Herself

Greetings AERO Enthusiasts!

My name is Kaleena Miller and I’ve recently joined the AERO staff as a program manager. Thank you for the opportunity to introduce myself and to share my vision for my work with you. I grew up in a suburban community sixty miles north of New York City, spending as much time as possible in the outdoors, be it hiking, skiing, or camping. I incorporated my appreciation and interest in the natural environment with my studies in undergraduate and graduate school. After completing my degrees in Environmental Economics and Environmental Policy, I fulfilled one of my dreams of moving west and settled into Butte, America.  Five years later, I find myself continuing to develop my environmental passion both personally and professionally, and here I am at AERO!

As I look forward into AERO’s future, I imagine the long roads between Montana communities feeling shorter as technology and web based platforms provide us ever increasing opportunities to connect with each other and feel more a part of one big community.  That is what I’d like to move towards in my work at AERO, a systems based approach to sustainable development, in our homes, in our communities, and throughout our expansive state. I look forward to engaging AERO members across the state, listening to communities’ needs and wants and translating them into AERO programming. I hope to contribute to the rich history and experience of this organization for years to come.   

I’m looking forward to meeting each and every one of you!

Kaleena Miller
