MEET DR. MILLER

Dr. Erica Miller—a five-foot-tall dynamo with an effervescent spirit— shares her life stories, she inspires audiences of all ages to live audaciously in the here and now. Full of guts, grit and gusto, Dr. Miller focuses on the positive side of life, teaching others how to overcome hardships and trauma that would daunt most of us. Her messages are full of hope and potential—energizing others to create the lives they want.

Dr. Miller spent four years of her childhood imprisoned in a Romanian Nazi run camp in Mogilev, Ukraine. After the War, surviving starvation, degradation, and unspeakable atrocities, her family emigrated to Israel in 1949. There she pursued her education and served in the Israeli Air Force for two years, which was highly uncommon for women at that time. After coming to the United States in the late 1950s, Dr. Miller’s determination and discipline led her to earn a Ph.D. in clinical psychology, while working and raising a family. Upon graduation, she established a chain of mental-health clinics in Southern California that she ran for 40 years. Today, she is an international best-selling author, inspirational speaker, and CEO of a highly successful real-estate business in Austin, TX.

As a survivor, pioneer and entrepreneur, Dr. Miller offers a unique perspective and keen insights on living life with a “can-do” attitude. Her wisdom and zest for life intertwine to create unforgettable messages that encourage audiences to grow, evolve and rejoice in the adventure of life.
