In an office that overlooks one of the village's most attractive spots, the several acres of wooded property between Haven Avenue and Route 30, Miller spends her day.
"What I like (about the job) is that no two days are alike. I enjoy talking to people as they come in and out of the building. I like sharing their happy moments, and available to share their not so happy moments," she said.
Mainly, Miller said she considers her job a ministry too. "My ministry is more behind the scenes. It's a support ministry." Everyone from the pastor to the music ministry leaders look to Miller to help keep them organized and on track. .
