Sally Miller was born and raised in Southern California where she spent her first 18 years growing up. She traveled around the world by ship through a study abroad program during her Freshman year in college and then finished up at San Diego State University where she completed her Bachelors Degree in Speech Communication. After being a stay at home mom for several years she decided to get involved at her children's elementary school. She taught a class for K-6 graders called "Good For Me". The class's main focus dealt with the importance of making healthy lifestyle choices. While living in San Diego she trained and completed the Rock and Roll marathon which was quite a rewarding experience.

Two of her three children have resided in Bozeman for several years so to have the opportunity to move here with her husband was quite a dream come true! In her spare time she enjoys running, biking, hiking, fly fishing, reading Early American history and traveling.
