Performs Investigative Psychology Work for United States Army
Dr. Michelle Miller is a forensic psychologist for the United States Army. She’s responsible for investigative psychology work and is developing an agent wellness program. Miller’s psychology internship training program took place at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, followed by work as a brigade psychologist for 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division. “Following a year-long deployment to Iraq with my unit, I moved to Fort Rucker, Alabama and worked as the Chief, Survival, Evasion, Rescue and Escape (SERE) psychologist,” she said.
Miller earned a Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology at American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | Northern Virginia in 2008 and was assigned as the forensic psychologist for the U.S. Army’s Criminal Investigation Division.
Miller is an active member of the United States Army and a recipient of the Bronze Star Medal. She said that her deployment to Iraq was the highlight of her career. “I quickly learned to function independently as a psychologist in an austere environment,” she stated. “I also learned the importance of consultation within Army command channels. Lastly, I learned the importance of integrating into an infantry unit to gain the trust and respect of my fellow Soldiers.”
She added that her professor, Dr. Michael Lynch, encouraged her to pursue a position in the Army. “I am grateful for the pharmacology and neuropsychology classes, which ultimately prepared me for my internship and residency training at Walter Reed Army Medical Center,” she said.
Miller recommends that current students think outside of the box and look for novel solutions. “Seek to always test your limits so that you can learn, grow and become more resilient,” she stated. “Never cease in your attempts to improve the organization in which you work; there may resistance at first, but you can accomplish a lot with the right attitude and a proactive mindset.”
*At the time of Dr. Miller’s graduation, the school was called American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | Washington D.C.
