Originally from Midwest City, Oklahoma, 28 year old Laura Miller is a teacher, traveller, and all around creative. An Oklahoma native, Laura spent the first 23 years of her life in the OKC area until moving to Thailand in 2015 to volunteer with Partners Relief & Development, a non-profit aid organization working with refugees from Myanmar, Syria, and Iraq.
Upon returning to The United States, Laura relocated to Vail, CO where she has spent the last four years teaching elementary music for Eagle County Public Schools.
During her time in Vail, she has made a name for herself performing locally as a singer-songwriter, hosting original creative events, and freelancing her musical and teaching talents to: The New York Philharmonic’s Very Young Composers program, Vail Performing Arts Academy, The Vilar Performing Arts Center, and Vail Jazz where she serves on the advisory board.
Most recently, Laura traveled to Amman, Jordan to teach English as well as an art based socio-emotional workshop to children from Iraq, Syria, and Jordan. Laura has traveled to 19 countries and finds great joy in making friends across lines of difference. She believes the world is better, kinder, and more loving when we choose to put our fear aside and instead act out of deep compassion.
Summer 2020 she will be premiering her writing in print for the inaugural edition of “Oklahoma Women’s Journal.” In addition, she will release her first EP, Clearing.
Motivated by a passion for learning, this fall Laura will embark upon a Masters of Arts in School and Clinical Counseling at Denver Seminary. While pursuing her graduate degree, Laura looks to continue her path of music and writing.
