For 25-year-old Erin Miller, the Big Brothers Big Sisters mission is both her profession and her passion. A development association for the organization, Miller is also a “Big” herself.
“I am fortunate enough to be touched by many different lives on a daily basis,” Miller says.
Miller’s eclectic list of interests includes an array of sports, hobbies and experiences. She holds an Art Therapy degree from Avila University, and she’s waiting for the day she can see the Northern Lights in person. Miller says she loves entertaining friends over drinks and dinner—if they’re not trying out new restaurants or bars in the city. A music lover, Miller’s iPod playlist ranges from Stevie Ray Vaughan to Citizen Cope and Jay-Z. Recently, Miller has taken up playing the drums and started golf lessons—and she’s training for a half marathon.
“I’m adventurous enough for anything,” Miller says, “so there are a lot of things that I would like to cross off my bucket list.”
As for the city she calls home, Miller can trace her affections through some of Kansas City’s iconic restaurants. From the meatballs at Coal Vines to the shrimp and grits at Bluestem, lobster mac and cheese at The Capital Grille, birria and margaritas at Port Fonda, fried rice at Bo Ling’s, street tacos from Cancun Fiesta Fresh, fried chicken from Stroud’s, Moscow Mules from the Foundry…for Miller, there’s no shortage of favorite dishes in this city.
