Nathifa Miller’s career path began as a practicing attorney for 20 plus years. She specialized in working with families and children that were at risk of being involved in various “systems.” As an attorney, she provided expert legal advocacy and representation to specialized populations. In this work, she promoted, supported, and applied a multidisciplinary approach to address the needs of the entire family. She believed that this was a building block for systems change. This work provided her the opportunity to work across the State of Colorado with local communities, city and state government agencies. In addition, Nathifa developed various trailblazing programs such as the Prevention Partnership Program, in which she served as the Director. During this chapter of her career, Nathifa developed a passion for public health.

In 2016, Nathifa accepted a position as the Collective Impact Coordinator for the Healthy Babies Strong Families Black Infant Mortality initiative. In 2017, she transitioned seamlessly into her current role as Workforce Development Senior Specialist, for the Center for Public Health Practice, Colorado School of Public Health.

Nathifa’s passion for health and wellness is nurtured through her volunteer work within the community, and her advocacy for “whole health” as a Certified Fitness Trainer. She is in her first term on the CPHA Board, PHiR Jr. Director. In addition, she continues as a member of the Board of Continuing Legal Education, as appointed by the Colorado Supreme Court.
