Teresa Miller has been a full-time community volunteer for over 25 years, including work with Meals on Wheels in three states, implementing several programs at her churches, and was a dedicated parent volunteer throughout her three sons’ school careers.
After a family member became addicted to prescription medication,
devoted to a better understanding of the disease and to help others, she earned a Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling. She created the website StopRxDrugAbuse.com to provide education on addiction and recovery. Her goal is to bring hope to families who find themselves struggling in the midst of addiction. After receiving her degree Teresa made the decision to continue her volunteer efforts and continues to work tirelessly in addiction prevention. Recently Florida placed “medical” marijuana on the state ballot. Based on her experience, education and knowledge of the devastating effects of marijuana to an individual’s health, families, academics and youth, she has focused her time educating local and state communities. Her goal: help people realize they don’t have to smoke pot to be effected by its consequences. She created the No2Pot.com website with the motto “If you don’t think legalizing pot is going to affect you... Think Again.” Teresa earned her Bachelor’s degree from the Georgia Institute of Technology in Business and Management and her Masters in Mental Health Counseling from the University of South Florida. She creates and maintains websites for non-profit organizations with which she volunteers. She lives in South Tampa where her family adopted three rescue dogs which keeps life interesting.
