Petco head of veterinary medicine, board-certified in veterinary preventive medicine
“As the head of veterinary medicine for Petco, there was nothing more exciting than our CEO, Ron Coughlin, saying he wanted to make sure we had some of the best scientific minds in the pet/vet world advising Petco. It’s an honor to lead this charge with some of the industry’s best and brightest.”
Dr. Miller is the head of Petco’s Veterinary Medicine department, serving as the company’s veterinary medical subject matter expert and supporting Petco’s Animal Care, Education and Compliance team. In her role, she works closely with Petco’s executive team and cross-functional leaders across merchandising, veterinary services, store operations, private brands and more to ensure the company’s industry-leading standards for animal care are upheld and that the importance of those standards are communicated and reinforced at every touchpoint and throughout every level of the business. Prior to joining Petco, Dr. Miller served as a contract veterinarian for a global animal health company, spent time in federal government relations for the American Veterinary Medical Association, advocating on animal welfare issues, and spent time as a private practitioner of companion animal veterinary medicine. She received her MBA and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree in 2006 and 2008 respectively, both from Colorado State University. She became a diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Preventive Medicine in 2018, and previously completed the AVMA Congressional Fellowship program, where she spent a year advising on science policy for a U.S. Senate committee.
