    Karin Miller


    Karin Miller is a Director at Brightworks Sustainability, where she helps lead Brightworks’ consulting operations, project delivery process, firm strategy and business development efforts.

    Tapping into more than 11 years of experience in Chicago, Portland and New York, Karin supports a full spectrum of sustainability project types, including sustainability strategy, research, certification management, materials management and educational curriculum development.

    Karin’s experience with the complete life cycle of project development allows her to guide teams to integrate sustainability strategies from the master plan phase through the design and construction of individual buildings – and to see complex projects through to successful completion.

    In addition to extensive experience managing green building certification programs, she brings a substantial background with healthy and sustainable materials consulting. Her instincts to seek out, observe, listen and learn from multiple perspectives equip her with skills necessary to facilitate discussions amongst stakeholders.
