Goodyear notes that Ms. Miller often goes above and beyond to ensure the plant is operating as efficiently as possible, helping to solve problems, even if they are outside of her purview. Her dedication, the tire maker said, was apparent when she became the first Topeka associate to be certified as a plant optimization practitioner.
Her leadership in the manufacture of new products extends outside of materials handling and includes production, quality, engineering, human resources and finance.
Ms. Miller's leadership has been a inspiration to many within her workplace and throughout her community, Goodyear said. She was nominated to attend the Topeka YWCA Leadership Momentum Program and later nominated four others for the honor. Currently, Ms. Miller is working to establish the Topeka branch of the Goodyear Women's Network to help connect and empower women throughout the company.
Outside of the office, Goodyear said, Ms. Miller impacts others with her community service. She started two non-profit organizations that allow local children to participate in football and cheerleading at little to no cost for community families, and she is active in the Upward Sports program, Go Topeka (a division of the Chamber of Commerce), the Greater Topeka United Way and more.
She is a member of the board of directors for the Auburn-Washburn Public School Foundation and participates in volunteering and fundraising opportunities for Shooting Star Equine Rescue Inc.
