Dr. Margaret Miles joined the Social Work Program in 2019. Before joining the faculty at Castleton University, she was a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and social work educator in Chicago.
Her work included serving as the Teen Programs Manager at Girls in the Game, a non-profit organization in Chicago. The organization’s mission is that every girl finds her voice, discovers her strength, and leads with confidence through fun and active sports, health, and leadership programs. She also worked as a Multisystemic Family Therapist engaging with families who had children involved with the Cook County Juvenile Court system.
Margaret is a Licensed Independent Social Worker in the State of Vermont. As a current board member at Atria Collective in Middlebury, VT she envisions a world free of physical, sexual, and emotional violence.
Margaret earned her D.S.W. from the University of St. Thomas. Her dissertation explored how baccalaureate social work educators utilize classroom participation as a pedagogical tool. One of her favorite aspects of teaching is advising students and discussing their personal motivations and passions. Margaret grew up in Vermont and is dedicated to preparing the next generation of Vermont social workers. When she’s not teaching social work you can find her spending time outside with her family.
