Ericka Miller

Partner

Having served as a partner at Isaacson, Miller from 2005 to 2007, Ericka rejoined our firm in 2016. Her education-focused practice is broad, mirroring her wide variety of experience. Her clients are located around the country and include preK-16 education nonprofits, education advocacy organizations, foundations, scientific research societies, historically black colleges and universities, and social justice research institutes. Ericka leads the firm’s preK-12 education and education improvement practice, and she serves on the firm’s Executive Committee. Across her career, clients have appreciated Ericka's expertise and insight into education and education policy, viewing her as a trusted advisor. She has held leadership positions in nearly every educational arena, beginning as a college faculty member. Since then, she's worked on Capitol Hill as an education advisor in the U.S. Senate, served as president of the education consulting firm The McKenzie Group, managed the research and advocacy nonprofit The Education Trust as COO, and served as a political appointee in the U.S. Department of Education. Ericka, a member of Leadership Greater Washington's Class of 2004, serves on a number of nonprofit boards, including the Institute for Higher Education Policy, Institute for Educational Leadership, and Editorial Projects in Education. She shares our firm's commitment to strengthening civic sector organizations and institutions, and has seen first-hand how the right leader is the key to advancing a mission and, as a result, improving the lives of others.
