Kara Lise Miller

Executive Assistant to the Dean

PSU History

I started working at PSU in 2014 as a student worker in both the CLAS Dean's Office and the Psychology Department. In 2015 I began in Psychology as a full-time Office Specialist, and transitioned to the School of Social Work in 2019.


I have worked in higher education at PSU for the last 7 years, and am looking forward to continuing my career in higher education.

Academic/Research Interests 

I am working on getting my B.S. in Psychology, and I am taking credits as my time allows while I am working at Portland State.

Personal Interests

I love to read, and always have a book or two on me. I have two dogs and my husband and I enjoy taking them out on hikes and going camping with them. I also enjoy watching football, researching new places to travel, and spending time with my family and friends.
