Friday Feature: Lisa Miller
This week's Friday Feature goes out to another amazing member! Meet, Lisa Miller. You can find her primarily working in our Capitol Hill space with Washington Student Cycling League.
Lisa recently joined our community last October. She had first read about The Riveter in an article announcing the opening of our flagship location in Capitol Hill. She has been interested in the concept of coworking for the past 10 years, and had even started working on a business model for a space in SoDo before shelving the idea to start a non-project organization. She kept tabs on The Riveter's development and the launch of our second location in Fremont. When attending a yoga retreat, she met a group of remarkable ladies that were discussing the challenges working women face and learned one of the ladies was an investor in The Riveter. It was her testimonial that got Lisa to walk into our doors and she hasn't looked back since. We're so happy to have her!
We took some time to chat with Lisa about her work with Washington Student Cycling League and her experience with us.
What are a few of your favorite things about The Riveter?
The Washington Student Cycling League is an interscholastic mountain bike program for students grades 6 though 12. Our guiding principles are developing strong mind, strong body and strong character through inclusivity and equality and positive outdoor experiences.
We carry out our mission by providing safe, accessible mountain bike riding opportunities for students, encouraging healthy lifestyle habits through physical fitness and positive outdoor experiences, facilitating an environment of teamwork, stewardship and leadership.Don’t you wish you had mountain biking as a sport when you were in middle and high school?
- Volunteer at one of our races which are posted at www.washingtonleague.org.
- Help with graphic design, website re-development, e-learning platform, promotional
materials and we always need professional speakers for our coaching conferences and Student Leadership Summit, just to name a few!
- Become a volunteer coach and work directly with the students.
- Make a tax-deductible donation to the League to enable more students the opportunity to participate and discover the benefits of this lifelong sport.
Head over to our Capitol Hill space to meet and chat with Lisa!
