Stephanie Miller was a beloved play therapist and board member of the Minnesota Association for Play Therapy. She passed away from cancer in August 2023. This is a tremendous loss for the play therapy community because anyone who had the pleasure of knowing Stephanie could see that she had a heart for children and she felt called to serve children and families in need. Stephanie has had an undeniable impact on the play therapy community and that impact will continue for years to come. Stephanie was grateful for the opportunity to become a play therapist and she wanted to support others as they began their play therapy journey. It is this passion that led to the creation of the Stephanie Miller First Steps Scholarship. This scholarship will go to a student or pre-clinical member to assist in their play therapy education or supervision. It is with Stephanie’s spirit that this scholarship will encourage others to “Play on!”
