During Miller's first year at the helm in 2008 she led the team to an 8-9-1 overall record and a 4-4 mark in SAC play, guiding three players to spots on the All SAC first and second teams.
Miller arrived at Newberry with eight seasons of NCAA Division I head coaching experience, all in the state of South Carolina. She was the inaugural head coach for the programs at Charleston Southern University and Coastal Carolina University.
Miller earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Behavioral Science from Erskine College in Due West, S.C., in 1990 and then graduated from Gardner-Webb University in Boiling Springs, N.C., with a Masters degree in Physical Education in 1992.

Miller began her college coaching career at Gardner-Webb, where she served as an assistant coach from 1990 to 1992. She then accepted the position of head coach at Charleston Southern.
After spending the 1992-93 academic year preparing the Lady Buccaneer program for competition, Miller led the squad to a combined 24-13-1 record over the next two seasons. In Charleston Southern’s first year of competition and her first as a head coach, Miller was named the Big South Conference Co-Coach of the Year.
After her success at Charleston Southern, Miller accepted an assistant coaching position at South Carolina and helped guide the Lady Gamecocks through their first two seasons of competition. She then moved to Alabama and helped the Crimson Tide to the Western Division Championship in the Southeastern Conference and a bid to the 1998 NCAA Tournament.
In 1999, Miller returned to the Palmetto State to begin the women's soccer program at Coastal Carolina University in Conway, S.C. She served as head coach through the 2005 season, earning a 47-50-16 record in six seasons in charge of the Lady Chanticleers.
She was also named Big South Conference Coach of the Year in 2000 and 2003 for a total of three BSC Coach of the Year awards. Her 2003 squad finished with a record of 10-9-2 overall and were the Big South regular season champions.
Miller's Coastal squads were named an Academic All-American team by the NSCAA in 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2005.
