Prior to forming TKO Miller, she was a managing director at Grace Matthews where she was responsible for managing transactions in a variety of industries.

She served as senior vice president of operations at Innovative Resource Group (now APS Healthcare), where she oversaw 400 employees and was responsible for $50 million in revenues.
Her prior investment banking experience includes positions at Alex. Brown & Sons, First National Bank of Chicago, Kidder Peabody, and Lehman Brothers.

As managing director, Miller successfully designed and managed the move to TKO Miller’s new office in November 2019. The new office space has individual offices combined with ample collaboration space and a new in-house podcast studio, which was specifically designed to promote the work culture of TKO Miller. She continues to develop new market strategies for TKO Miller including frequent blogging, website development, newsletters, and most recently, a podcast entitled “Deal Team Six.”
