About Me


Erin Miller is a licensed genetic counselor in the Heart Institute at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. Her clinical activities are focused in the arena of cardiovascular genetics with specific interests in pediatric cardiomyopathy, arrhythmia and aortopathy. Research interests include the impact of clinical genetic testing and cardiac screening recommendations on family members, genotype-phenotype correlations, and the integration of cardiovascular genetic counseling and evaluation into clinical cardiology care. She is currently serving as the lead genetic counselor for the NIH/NHLBI funded study lead by Dr. Steven Lipshultz, ‘Genotype-phenotype correlations in pediatric cardiomyopathy’. Erin also has an interest in training and education and serves as a clinical supervisor and research advisory committee chair for the University of Cincinnati Genetic Counseling Graduate Program. She is a member of the National Society of Genetic Counselors and Cardiovascular Special Interest Group.
