Wayne Miller earned his Bachelor’s degree from Springfield College where he studied human services, mental health, and addiction treatment. As a person in long-term recovery, Wayne has spent the majority of his career providing direct services and advocating for the importance of peer-based programs and services throughout Vermont and New Hampshire. In the summer of 2018 he developed and co-founded The Center for Recovery Resources.
That same year, Wayne created a mentoring program for Black youth in Vermont and New Hampshire. Living Proof Mentoring (LPM) provides representation, advocacy, and affinity spaces for Black youth in rural communities.
In addition to managing LPM, Wayne is the development director of The Root Social Justice Center in Brattleboro and also offers consultancy through interactive workshops and coaching for organizations, businesses, and individuals seeking support with addressing issues relating to addiction/recovery, race, inclusion, and equity. Wayne is based in the Upper Valley where he lives with his fiancee and their two children.
