She successfully owned & operated Miller Insurance, LLC for over 16 years and remained extremely active in the community. After many years working in the insurance industry, she was given the opportunity for a change of career.

Mission & Values

Her desire to serve our residents and develop partnerships between the many agencies make her the best and only candidate for your next St. Lucie Clerk of Court!
In 2004, as chair of local governmental affairs for the St. Lucie Chamber of Commerce, I was tasked with launching a referendum for the construction of a third roadway and bridge in Port St. Lucie.
Together with Jim McKenzie and John Donahue, we met with the Treasure Coast Builders Association Exec. Director, Maddie Williams, and the Realtors Association President, Stacy Storms. As a result of this meeting, we worked together, forming a partnership to transform the need for the additional roadway and bridge into a reality. On June 7, 2005, a City-wide election for the bond referendum to fund the design and construction of the Crosstown Parkway and Bridge was overwhelmingly approved by over 89 percent of Port St. Lucie voters!
In 2006, I was awarded the Richard L. McLaughlin Award, Volunteer of the Year, District #8 by the Florida Economic Development Council, in recognition of the outstanding volunteer contributions to economic development in Florida.
In 2007, I had the opportunity to accompany Commissioner Frannie Hutchinson to Washington D.C to lobby for the construction of an additional runway at the St. Lucie County Airport which was approved and constructed! This dual runway system will allow for much needed, expansive growth at our airport.
