Kristen Miller joined Singleton Schreiber McKenzie & Scott Trial Lawyers with a background in law, education and non-profit. Each step of Kristen’s diverse career has been motivated by her passions for policy, advocacy and social justice.
After graduating cum laude from University of California, Santa Cruz, with a major in Modern Literature, Kristen obtained her law degree from California Western School of Law, where she was a recipient of their Creative Problem-Solving Scholarship. Throughout law school, Kristen focused her academic pursuits on civil rights and public interest law. She interned with the dependency section of the Public Defender, where she assisted in the representation of children in foster care. Kristen also holds a master’s degree in Educational Policy from Loyola Marymount University, which she obtained while teaching high school English and Speech and Debate in South Los Angeles through Teach for America. Inspired by her work with the Public Defender, Kristen focused her research and thesis on educational outcomes for foster youth, as well as racial disparities in our educational and legal systems. Kristen has continued her passion for empowering foster youth as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA).
