Dean of Student Life
Julie Miller uses she/her pronouns.
She joined Quest August 2014, bringing with her 15 years of experience as a clinical therapist and senior leader. Student success has been at the core of Julie’s work and educational pursuits over the past 20 years.
Julie most recently served as Director, Health and Wellness and Campus Counsellor at Quest. Prior to these roles, Julie has held senior positions at the Canadian Cancer Society, Crisis Intervention and Suicide Prevention Centre of BC, and the YMCA.
Julie has completed a Master of Social Work degree from UBC, Bachelor of Education from Simon Fraser University, and an undergraduate degree from Lakehead University and University of Victoria.
Julie believes that with the proper supports, all students can find belonging and academic success in their post-secondary studies.
Julie has had the opportunity to participate in LGBTQIA+ competency trainings and Indigenous leadership training and is open to ongoing learning in this and other areas to support safer spaces at Quest and beyond. Julie hopes to spend time this year amplifying indigenous voices and stories in the work of the student life team.
Julie brings a wealth of knowledge and a fresh perspective to Quest’s Executive team as she hits the ground running and assumes the role of Dean of Students.
Julie has lived in the Squamish area for 16 years and is a strong community member and volunteer. She has been very privileged to have lived in and travelled to many countries in the world, but always finds a way to come back to beautiful BC.
When not working with students at Quest, you can find Julie participating in a multitude of activities that Squamish has to offer including ultra-running, backcountry skiing, hiking, mountain biking, travelling, and spending quality time with daughters Sola and Yale, partner Ryan and puppy Koa.
