Dr. Victoria Miller, PhD, LPC-S, LMHC

Dr. Victoria Miller's first academic love was education. Her circuitous path to a PhD in Education, specializing in curriculum & instruction began with a bachelor's degree in Psychology. Health issues and a focus on family turned that 4-year degree into 6 years that were immediately followed by a master's in Professional Counseling. After several years in the mental health field, she pursued a Master of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing & Literary Arts. Then, COVID-19 hit, and Dr. Miller decided to return to her first love - education. She created #PhDin3 as her motivational hashtag, buckled down, and with the support of her family, friends, professors, classmates, colleagues, and research participants, she graduated in March 2023. You can click the link to read Dr. Miller's dissertation titled American Indian/Alaska Native Learners' Experiences with Embodied Cultural Capital in Alaska's Public Postsecondary Institutions: A Phenomenological Study. With a passion for education (teaching and learning) and a desire for providing student counselor interns with an internship experience that promotes experiential learning and work-life balance, Dr. Miller is honored to support counselors-in-training on their journey to graduation and licensure.
