Dr. Miller's Story
Dr. Cari S. Miller is a board-certified Family Nurse Practitioner seeing men, women, and children. Aristotle once said: “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts” and Dr. Miller strongly believes health practitioners should view their patients as whole people, with mind, body, and soul all working together to impact their overall health. She focuses on health from a functional medicine perspective, which seeks to discover the underlying root cause of symptoms, rather than simply treating each individual symptom in isolation. She prides herself on listening and hearing patients and partnering with them to achieve the health and happiness they desire.
Dr. Miller and her husband have been married for over 32 years and moved to Alaska in 1998. Along with their eight children, they have lived in many locations throughout the state, with the majority of their time spent living off-road in Bush locations maintaining a subsistence hunting, fishing, gathering, trapping, and gardening lifestyle. She is a strong home education advocate, having home educated all of her eight children. Dr. Miller spent years as a dog musher in Nome, participating in local races and the 408 mile All Alaska Sweepstakes Race. Currently, she is a dedicated CrossFit athlete and is very active in her Catholic parish community.
Dr. Miller graduated from Samford University with a Doctor of Nursing Practice, Family Nurse Practitioner. Additionally, she holds a Master of Public Health in Public Health Practice from the University of Alaska, Anchorage, a Bachelor of Science in Nursing Science from the University of Alaska, Anchorage, and a Bachelor of Liberal Arts with focus in Anthropology, Psychology, and History from the University of Alaska, Southeast.
