She is an active teacher in the Foundational Continuity Clinic and Primary Care Clerkship at HMS, and directs the HMS Family Medicine elective. 

She received her medical degree and completed a family residency at the University of Arizona College of Medicine. Dr. Miller’s special interest areas include care of at-risk and marginalized populations, multi-generational families, reproductive health, and working with immigrants. Most recently she has been a front-line provider for Cambridge Health Alliance during the COVID-19 pandemic.
