Miller played tennis in high school and on a club team in college. She decided to pursue physical therapy because as a teenage she found herself with multiple injuries resulting in trip to a physical therapist.

“I would look forward to appointments and have fun working with the therapists, and then it clicked that maybe I could have this as a career one day. I liked the idea of getting to spend a lot of time with patients and helping them to achieve their specific goals,” said Miller.

Before joining Tidewater Physical Therapy, Miller worked at Liberty Sports & Physical Therapy in Stafford, VA. She also previously coached a high school boys’ and girls’ tennis teams.

She likes to use a balance of exercise and manual therapy geared to positively change the issue that brought a patient to physical therapy.

Miller believes, “As a physical therapist, patient empowerment is a priority. Teaching patients about their condition and what they can do at home not only to resolve their issue, but to prevent it from coming back is a necessity.”

She enjoys treating patients of all types, and likes looking at her schedule and seeing a mix of all ages and orthopedic diagnoses.

In her spare time Miller likes to explore the greater Richmond area, trying out new restaurants, playing tennis, and working out.
