Ginger Miller is a native New Yorker, and former homeless service-disabled Navy veteran turned White House Champion of Change for Women Veterans and President and CEO of Women Veterans Interactive Inc.
After caring for her husband, a disabled veteran who suffered from Post- Traumatic Stress Disorder for over a decade and experiencing homelessness with her family, Mrs. Miller vowed to be victorious and worked three jobs and went to school full time to pull her family out of homelessness.
Determined to give back to her fellow veterans, Mrs. Miller formed the nonprofit organization John 14:2, Inc in 2009 which was instrumental in starting the first Prince Georges County Homeless Veteran Stand Down. Through Ginger's
advocacy and outreach efforts with John 14:2, Inc, she hosted Veteran Round Tables in Annapolis, Maryland and was appointed to and served as Chairwoman of the Prince George's County Veterans Commission, as a commissioner on the Maryland Commission for Women, as a member of the Maryland Caregivers Coordinating Council and as a member of the Maryland Veterans Resilience Advisory Council.
In 2011, Ginger started Women Veterans Interactive (WVI), a division of John 14:2, Inc. With a mission of meeting women veterans at their points of need through Advocacy, Empowerment, Interaction, Outreach, and Unification, WVI took off and became a leading member-based nonprofit organization for women veterans. Supporting more than 5,000 women veterans since inception, in 2018 WVI became a stand-alone nonprofit organization and with approval from the IRS in 15 days, Women Veterans Interactive, Inc was formed.
Under Ginger’s leadership, Women Veterans Interactive Inc has forged ahead to create impactful solutions-based programs to address the unique needs of women veterans. Mrs. Miller has worked diligently to secure critical partnerships needed to assist in delivering support services to women veterans through WVI programs. Some partners and grantors include The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Center for Minority Veterans, Virginia Department of Veterans Services, Blacks in Government, the Starbucks Foundation, the Trinka Davis Foundation, Dominion Energy Foundation, Amazon, USAA, Comcast NBCUniversal, Paralyzed Veterans of America and the Atlanta Woman’s Club.
Keeping in the spirit of service, Ms. Miller currently serves on the Advisory Board of Northwest Federal Credit Union and just completed a fiver year term on the Advisory Committee on Minority Veterans at U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs where she completed her last two terms as Chairwoman.
