Dr. Miller is the best! She is a true professional and really knows what she is talking about. With her help I was able to overcome my fears and take charge of my career. Since working with her I have successfully transition from a teaching position into the curriculum leader position that I always wanted but was too afraid to apply for. I highly recommend the career coaching services provided by her and the Professor Patty Cake team! Jackie

I landed a job thanks to the help I got from Professor Patty Cake. I struggled for months trying to land a job in my field of teaching. I had all the qualifications for a job but I lacked a professional resume. Professor Patty Cake helped me write a "job getting" resume as well as provided me with valuable insight that ultimately helped me get the job I wanted. I highly recommend Professor Patty Cake!

We hired Dr. Vernold Miller to provide a keynote speech at our annual company retreat. We had recently made many administrative changes and found that our staff morale was down. We selected her as a speaker due to her expertise in resiliency building. Her speech was exactly what we need to motivate our staff and get them excited about working for our company. Her speech was entertaining but also informative. She gave many useful tips and even stuck around after her speech to chat with staff members about specific challenges they were having.
