Miller, Taylor

Dr. Taylor Miller is a veterinarian, a Professional Counselor Associate, and a Board Member and volunteer for Not One More Vet (NOMV). Taylor’s interest in mental health began during vet school and culminated in the pursuit of a Masters in Mental Health Counseling during her years as an associate veterinarian in general practice. After nine years exclusively in the veterinary world, she has restructured her time to focus on her mission of improving the mental health and wellbeing of veterinary professionals.

To that end she opened a private counseling practice, Thoughtful Life Counseling, with the aim of providing mental health counseling for individuals as well as education for the profession at large through her podcast titled Veterinary Mental Health. During this period of transition, she became involved with NOMV as a volunteer on the Student Support and Mentorship Committee and within a short time began speaking in support of their education initiative. This year is has been her very great honor to accept a place on the NOMV Board of Directors.

It is her sincere hope that education in wellness topics and normalizing the conversation around mental health will allow veterinary professionals to manage the challenges of their demanding careers and preserve the joy and passion that drew them into the field.
