Whose acronym stands for Patience, Understanding, Stability, and Handling your business.”
Miller launched Parents Against Bullying after her family experienced firsthand the traumatic effects of a horrible bullying incident that involved her daughter. The attack caused her to confront the issue of bullying head on and she found herself dealing with medical, safety and other concerns that were impacting her family.
So, she turned a negative situation into a positive one and vowed to do everything in her power to prevent another child, family or community from dealing with the stress and trauma that her family endured. Since the incident, Miller has dedicated her life to serving families everywhere and to stamp out bullying wherever it raises its ugly head. Through the efforts of Parents Against Bullying and P.U.S.H. LLC., Miller provides annual events, monthly workshops, weekly mentoring sessions, summer camps, school visits, assistance to community centers and much more.
