Amy Miller has been named executive director of SNIP Alliance. SNIP Alliance is a nonprofit organization in Illinois that was formed to promote the spaying and neutering of Illinois pets by subsidizing medical costs, reducing the number of unwanted animals and strays, decreasing the number of animals euthanized, and providing education to Illinois citizens on the public benefits of an altered pet.
“SNIP Alliance cares for both people and animals and that’s where my heart is, too. Since 2008, they have had a wonderful and positive impact on the community. I look forward to continuing the growth and accomplishments of the organization,” Miller said.
Miller has a background in animal care, education, management, and leadership and as small business owner in Edwardsville, she is dedicated to the local community.
She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Workforce Education and Development from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale in 2008 and her Master of Science in Mental Health Counseling from Capella University in 2014.
She has worked in the service industry as an interpreter for the deaf for 26 years and has taught in the post-secondary setting for ten years. Miller has also been in management since 2008 and brings a leadership style that is collaborative and supportive where every person is just as important as the next.
