Our Trustees


Nicola Miller - Founder and Trustee (current co-Chair)


Nicola founded A Mile in Her Shoes in 2013 to bring together two things that she believes in passionately: the health and other benefits of running; and improving social inclusion opportunities for women: in particular, those with lived experience of homelessness.


Nicola has built most of her career in the charity and not-for-profit sector. She is CEO at the Dash Charity, supporting people experiencing domestic abuse. Prior to that, she was CEO at homelessness charity Restart Lives, and has been Director of Campaigns and Communications at gender equality charity Women in Sport.

She began her career working in PR and communications, is a Clore Social Leadership Fellow and believes strongly in feminist leadership principles.

In 2016, Nicola was recognised as one of the Prime Minister’s ‘Points of Light’, an accolade that acknowledges those making an outstanding difference in their community. 

Kate Burt - Trustee (Co-Chair)


Kate is CEO at The Haemophiliac Society and has worked in the charity sector for most of her career.

Kate was an executive director at Leonard Cheshire, a global disability charity, leading their marketing and fundraising work. In addition, she has worked as a director at Police Now, recruiting outstanding individuals to be police officers; Green House Sports as the chief operating officer, a charity working with young people in inner cities helping them to release their potential through sport.

And from 2012-2014, was the chief executive of British Rowing, as well as a number of other roles, including The Prince’s Trust.

Jennifer Cirone - Trustee


Jennifer has previously worked at one of our homelessness host organisations in their women’s strategy team.  Getting active, taking part in healthy activities and making friends are really important priorities for the women we work with and vital to their recovery from homelessness.  Jennifer only started running because someone told her she could not and discovered that she loved it.  


She is a qualified LiRF run leader and loves to share her passion for running to help other women experience the physical and mental health benefits of being active. Jennifer is a qualified barrister and has a qualification in managing volunteers in the homeless sector and has set up a project to help people who have to attend the family court without a lawyer.


Jennifer has worked with victims of domestic abuse where she developed pilot initiatives that are now available nationwide to help people at risk make informed choices about their situation.


Carli Foster - Treasurer, Board of Trustees


Carli is passionate about volunteering and has volunteered for several different charities. She has been an active member of a charity committee in a former workplace and recently helped launch a volunteer programme for employees on top of her day job.


Carli is a Chartered Accountant (ACA) who trained at Deloitte and is a member of the Chartered Institute of Chartered Accountants England & Wales.


Carli also enjoys running and is an LiRF (Leadership in Running Fitness) qualified run group leader.
