Background and Personal History: Victoria was born in Champaign, Ill., and grew up in Seattle, Wash., in a family of 8 children. She married David Miller in 2000. No children. They moved to their off-grid farm in the foothills of the Olympic Mountains in 2006.

She started raising heritage chickens, turkeys and ducks in 2007. Her first Mother Earth News Fair presentation was given in 2011 (Puyallup, Wash.).

Other Fun Facts: I like to be learning new things all the time, simply because I thrive on the process of learning. I’m a problem-solver type, and I love to tackle challenges and figure things out. I love singing, dancing, cooking, reading, writing, New York Times crossword puzzles, making beer and wine, and most recently, distilling.
