Erica Miller spent four years of her childhood in a collection camp after her family was dispossessed from their Romanian home. After the war, they went to Israel, where Erica served in the air force. Eventually settling in California, she pursued her dream of an education, eventually receiving a doctorate and starting several successful businesses while raising a family.
