Rhoda Miller

Crisis Response Coordinator

Rhoda is a Virginia transplant, coming to the Shenandoah Valley from Ohio to attend Eastern Mennonite University, where she studied art education. After over five years of working with Children's Services and Crossroads Counseling Center, Rhoda joined the Collins Center in 2009 and fills a variety of roles, including serving as the primary forensic interviewer for the Child Advocacy Center and as the graphic designer for the agency. Rhoda is an experienced advocate for victims and their non-offending family members, and has helped grow the organization's crisis program to offer more comprehensive, accessible services to victims. In her current role as Crisis Response Coordinator, Rhoda conducts on-site forensic interviews, provides and coordinates advocacy, accompaniment, and crisis services, and oversees print and digital media for the agency. Her skills as an artist have led her to create a successful art therapy group that she co-leads with Collins Center therapists. Rhoda is currently enrolled in the Masters in Restorative Justice program through the Center for Justice and Peacebuilding at Eastern Mennonite Univeristy. Outside of the Collins Center and school, Rhoda's passions include creating art, international traveling, hiking, running, and anything else that takes her outside.

I came to the Collins Center over eight years ago, not expecting to fall into such a fulfilling career that would not only best utilize my skills, but also force me to learn and grow on a daily basis. I am proud and honored to work with individuals who come forward to speak about their experience with sexual violence. Their courage inspires me to speak openly about this issue in our society and be someone willing to have uncomfortable conversations in a world where many would rather remain in denial.
