Miles Treakle ’96, Avalara Associate General Counsel

Miles Treakle ’96, associate general counsel of Avalara, Inc., can trace the start of his career back to his time at St. Anne’s-Belfield School.

“The academic rigor of my St. Anne’s-Belfield School education has had an enduring impact on my career path,” he said. “Even if I somehow had managed to gain admission to the University of Virginia without first attending the School, I would have been ill-prepared to tackle its academic demands. And without the finance education I received at U.Va.’s McIntire School of Commerce, I never would have considered practicing corporate law, which ultimately led me to join Avalara to work on its initial public offering on the New York Stock Exchange.”

At the School, Treakle played lacrosse for Coach Doug Tarring. Today, he continues his athletic journey with long distance running.

“Learning to balance academics and athletics has been a lifelong gift,” he said. “While I no longer play team sports, long distance running has become an indispensable release valve for a stressful professional career. I have run more than twenty marathons and ultramarathons, but the real benefit comes not from race day but the mental refresh provided by daily training runs.”
