Meet Kelly Miller

Kelly Miller

ServiceMaster partnered with Tech901 in the past year to develop the nonprofit’s Code 1.0 course. They wanted to offer a course that would benefit local companies. During the planning stage, conversations were held with local IT professionals to gauge their needs.

After the graduation of the first Code 1.0 cohort, ServiceMaster hired four students as interns. Kelly Miller was later hired full-time. She now works as a front-end developer with the American Home Shield E-Commerce team.

“I deal with the customer-facing side. The images, the words, and the content you see is created with JavaScript, HTML and CSS. It’s connected to the back end — the database and such. I am interested in front-end development so everything you see on the site is what I create,” said Miller.

Miller holds an undergraduate degree in Engineering Science from Vanderbilt University. After an internship as a product engineer, she switched gears and became a teacher.

She took a position in the Peer Power organization. While working as the STEM coordinator in 2012, she was recruited to East High School to teach engineering courses. After several years, she was ready to tackle a new challenge.
