Kristin Amy Miles
A remembrance by friends and colleagues Paul
Olsen, Eric Nelson, Taya Briley, and her colleagues at the University of Washington Division
of the Attorney General’s Office.
We mourn the passing of our dear friend and
colleague Kristin Miles.
Kristin was an energetic, compassionate, and
gifted lawyer whose contributions to her profession and to her friends will be greatly missed.
Kristin was born in Bellevue and earned undergraduate and law degrees from the University of
Washington. For the past nine years, she served
in the UW Division of the Attorney General’s
Office as a key member of its healthcare team.
The UW healthcare system, and the healthcare
community at large, have benefited significantly
from her incredible intelligence, hard work, and
Kristin was an active board member of the
Washington State Society of Healthcare Attorneys and a contributing author and editor
for the Washington Health Law Manual. She
was a member of the American Health Lawyers
Association and a national speaker on health law
topics. Early in her career, with the AG’s DSHS
division, Kristin played an instrumental role in
developing state regulations for the community
public mental health system.
Lawyers, doctors, nurses, professors, and
healthcare administrators will miss Kristin’s
unique professional contributions. Kristin’s
colleagues, family, and friends truly mourn the
loss of a joyful and generous person. Kristin
was quick, funny, and charismatic. She was an
accomplished musician who performed with
jazz choirs, the Northwest Girl Choir, and in
her office, late at night. She knew all the best
music — from Mozart and Verdi to Brandi, Elvis,
Pink Martini, and Diana Krall.
Kristin’s tender heart led to a steady love for
animals, children, and anyone who was suffering
or hurting. She would generously share her whimsical gift collection with anyone — especially with
the children of her friends and co-workers. Kristin
will be remembered for her commitment to public
service, her fireball personality, her unending
generosity and goodwill, and her free-spirited
sense of humor.
With her intellect, Kristin belonged in conference rooms with the brightest doctors and
lawyers in Washington as they worked to resolve
nearly intractable problems with healthcare
and academic administration. With her love for
uninhibited joy, wild schemes, and irreverent
fun, she reminded us all not to take ourselves too
seriously. We will all miss her dearly.
Kristin Amy Miles was born on Dec. 13, 1962,
and died June 23, 2012, at the age of 49.
