Having long felt motivated to become a nursery school teacher, Dr. Miller drew inspiration from the influence of Rosemary Gannon, a teacher at Bennett College.

Continuing with her education, Dr. Miller received a Doctor of Education in early childhood education from Nova Southeastern University in 1984.
After Dr. Miller graduated, she taught second-grade and preschool students. She subsequently met Nancy Joan Hereford from Instructor Magazine who encouraged her to pen articles and columns for a new magazine, which launched her writing career.
