Miller earned a law degree from the University of Florida and is a member of the Florida Bar and the Australian (NSW) Bar. She is the Founder and President of City Ethics, a non-profit organization that offers online tools and resources to people who want to fight local government corruption. Miller has worked to jumpstart ethics programs in the United States and internationally, including programs in the Middle East, China and Africa. She started her career as a federal prosecutor and focused on white-collar crime, including the successful prosecution of the President Pro Tem of the Florida Senate. Miller was an officer of COGEL, the national government ethics organization, and in that capacity she organized municipalities nationwide to share best practices and resources.
After volunteering for her city's ethics program in Jacksonville, Florida she observed firsthand the problems of a typical municipal ethics program based only on highly technical laws. In the last several years Miller initiated a strong citizen coalition in Jacksonville to create an independent local ethics office called the Office of Ethics, Compliance and Oversight. She drafted new laws to establish the office and successfully lobbied to get them passed. When they did, she was named the first director of the office by the Citizen Ethics Commission. She has trained thousands of city employees and officials, written ethics codes, and received hundreds of calls on an anonymous hotline. She has fought lobbyists, big business, and union interests in their dealings with local government and understands through personal experience the meaning and impact of institutional corruption.
During her fellowship year, Miller will focus on developing and disseminating tools to help municipalities fight institutional corruption based upon the Lab's research.
