I am The Rev. Dr. Col. Patricia Miller and I grew up in southwest Dekalb County and then entered the United States Air Force as a registered nurse. After discharge from that active duty tour, I returned to Georgia and worked in Augusta at the Medical College of Georgia where I obtained my Bachelors and Masters in Nursing. While I was in Augusta, I found the Episcopal Church and started attending EFM (Education for Ministry) through the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee. I also began my discernment for holy orders at St. Augustineís parish in Augusta.
Graduating from Seminary in 1996, I headed to the diocese of Colorado and was ordained there and served as a curate and associate rector. After a few years in Boulder Colorado I moved to Independence, Missouri and served at St. Michaelís for 17 years. It was an amazing partnership of ministry during which I retired from the Air Force Reserves as a Colonel and I also completed my Doctor of Ministry degree. Throughout all those years, I have kept my hand in nursing by consulting for an accreditation group called The Joint Commission.
Prior to coming to St. Timothyís, I served as Interim Rector at St. Aidanís in Milton, GA.
