Brigid Miller, M.A.
As a business development associate, Brigid supports the growth of McKinley’s business by developing proposals for current and prospective clients. Her experience working across a variety of fields with multiple types of organizations, including nonprofits, international organizations and governmental agencies, has equipped her with a well-rounded background and a strong understanding of organizational structures and needs.
Prior to joining McKinley, Brigid worked for C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group on the Financing Sustainable Cities Initiative where she developed a knowledge-sharing platform that allowed cities to access data, research and information in a centralized location.
She also spent time in Nairobi, Kenya where she worked as an independent monitoring and evaluation consultant for a school and rescue center. In this position, she analyzed and synthesized data to produce written reports and facilitated workshops to deepen engagement, address realities and develop a plan of action based on community input. She credits this experience for her interest in working with clients and managing project deliverables, as well as her ability to adapt in ever changing environments to reach mutually beneficial solutions.
Brigid holds a M.A. in international affairs from The New School, as well as a B.S. in diplomacy and international relations and a B.A. in sociology from Seton Hall University. During her graduate program, she conducted independent research on sustainable development and water infrastructure in Cuba which furthered her written and oral communication skills while increasing her expertise in the environmental field.
While she’s not working or traveling abroad, she spends as much time as possible outside hiking, running, or exploring the city (often while running). She can usually be found with a strong cup of coffee in one hand and a book in the other.
