Blaze Farrar provides support to the GEAR UP team as Administrative Assistant in the Oakland office since September 2007. In addition to being the event coordinator, she serves as a communications hub between school leadership, Regional Coordinators and Program Managers and the Business Network Initiative.

She received a Bachelor of Arts degree in History with a minor in Communication from Rockford College, Illinois, and is currently a candidate for a Masters in Business Administration at Holy Names University in Oakland. While in Illinois, she was a Director of Marketing & Sales and a Special Assistant to the President of Rockford College. She and her husband, Michael Miller, now reside in Oakland.

For fun, she enjoys hiking, walking around Lake Merritt, biking, cooking locally grown produce, learning to knit, and exploring the nooks and crannies of “off the beaten track” spots in the Bay Area.
