Career[edit]

Miller trained in skating and gymnastics before deciding to focus on the former.[6] She is coached by her paternal aunt, Kirsten Miller-Zisholz.[4]

Miller won the 2011 U.S. novice title.[7] The next season, she won a bronze medal in her Junior Grand Prix debut and the U.S. junior national bronze medal.

In 2012–13, Miller won a pair of silver medals at JGP events in Austria and Croatia and qualified for the 2012–13 Junior Grand Prix Final in Sochi, Russia. She won the silver medal after placing second in the short program and fourth in the long. She made her senior national debut at the 2013 U.S. Championships, finishing 10th.[8]

In September 2014, making her senior international debut, Miller took the silver medal at the Lombardia Trophy, an ISU Challenger Series (CS) event in Sesto San Giovanni, Italy. In November, she won gold at the CS Ice Challenge in Graz, Austria.
