Miller has lived with food allergies all her life. She's widely known as "Allergic Girl," author of the blog "Please Don't Pass the Nuts." She has used her know-how about dining out with food allergies to organize "Worry Free Dinners," which are groups of people with food allergies going to a restaurant together and sharing experiences and strategies. In her day job, Miller coaches people with dietary restrictions such as food allergies in overcoming their fears and navigating everyday situations.
