Susan Miller

Posted: Updated:

Susan Miller graduated with a major in Telecommunications and minor in Marketing from Indiana University and since then her career started with many twists and turns.  Her first job was working at a small radio station in her hometown of FW, where she sold advertising and wrote copy.  Less than a year into the job, the station dissolved.  So, she moved to Indianapolis looking for work at an advertising agency.  With an economic downturn and layoffs everywhere, employment opportunities were nowhere to be found.  So, when her boyfriend (husband now) graduated from the Kelly School of Business at IU, was hired by a company in Cleveland, she thought maybe this city had advertising opportunities for her.

Well, within the first week, she had two job offers…never felt so good!  Not exactly in her field of choice however it was a job!  She started working for Dun & Bradstreet as an Inside Sales Reporter. She was the one to assign credit ratings to companies.   After a couple years, she was promoted to Columbus where she was an outside reporter.  Then, she moved to Cincinnati where she worked in various recruiting and sales positions.  With a baby on the way, she and her husband decided to move back to their hometown to raise a family.  She worked part time at a fortune 500 company in the corporate recruiting department. 

After taking 8 years off to raise her now 3 children, her advertising break came knocking, when she took a job with WPTA-TV in the advertising department.  That was 17 years ago and she still loves her job.  When she is not at work, you can find her swimming laps at the YMCA with the Master Swim Team, cycling on the Aboite Trails or kayaking at the lake.   If you’d like to discuss branding ideas and strategies for your company, using the most powerful forms of advertising; television, digital and mobile, call me at 260-466-6733 or email me at smiller@wpta21.com.
