professional career in financial services as an analyst with Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan Chase, respectively.

scholarship programs, including the UNCF Gates Millennium Scholars Program.
When he relocated to Atlanta in 2011, Dr. Miller accepted a job in education operations. He worked as the
Operations Analyst and Business Development Manager for Mosaica Education, a national educational
management organization. He identified opportunities for company growth, developed and coordinated
charter school proposals and presentations, established relationships with corporate partners, non-profit
organizations, community leaders, and vendors, and more.
Dr. Miller longed to work with students as had in New York. He left his corporate job to work in a nonprofit. From
2011-2012, Dr. Miller served as Program Director for the Steve Harvey National Mentoring Program for Young
Men, where his work included planning, organizing, staffing, leading, and controlling program activities. He
saved more than $300K in operating budget expenditures, developed initiatives to support the strategic
direction of this empowering foundation, and secured understandings with national colleges and universities to
award scholarships to program students.
