A native Texan, Margaret Miller grew up in Houston, spending weekends and summers with her grandparents in Waco and the Hill Country near Austin. Her uncles and grandfathers enjoyed hunting doves, geese and quail. Her brother tagged along, but at the time, young girls were seldom invited to learn about hunting. Her job was to make goose gumbo and listen to her brother’s tall tales, which she says she did with pleasure.
Miller joined the Delta team in 2020 as an accomplished writer with more than 15 years of experience in corporate communications and education. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in English from Hollins College in Roanoke, Virginia, and a Master of Fine Arts in writing from Bowling Green University in Ohio.
She taught English in high schools and colleges throughout the country, and created marketing materials and major gift proposals for clients in an array of industries, including the U.S. State Department, the LBJ Presidential Library and Trinity University. Her articles, essays and poetry have appeared in numerous national and international magazines and journals.
Her connection with Delta began shortly after she moved to Long Island, New York, to live closer to her two grown sons and two grandchildren. Eager to join the workforce again, she discovered that Delta Waterfowl was in search of a writer and outdoor enthusiast to support its mission, primarily focused on writing development proposals and campaigns — a perfect fit.
Miller says that when she’s not working, she can most likely be found traveling. She said, “I love taking road trips and have traveled to more than half of the 50 states. Since moving from Texas to Connecticut, I’ve explored many of the parks and hiking trails in New Hampshire and Vermont.”
She admits the three things that would be impossible for her to give up are books, Netflix and Mexican food. While not a hunter, Miller is a lover of outdoor adventure. She is an avid birdwatcher, an Outward Bound alumnus and she has finished five marathons.
