Who is Rebecca Claire Miller?

Rebecca Claire Miller was born on the 23rd September 1971, in Nashville, Tennessee USA, and is a versatile woman, involved in a number of areas of the news industry, serving as a television producer and also as a senior vice president of communications and public affairs for the National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA). However, she is probably best known to the world as the wife of former White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer.

Early Life, Family, and Education

The daughter of Sally and Harry Miller Jr. and his wife, her father served as the president of Miller Properties, which is a real estate agency with headquarters in Madison, Alabama, while her mother was an assistant to Vanderbilt University’s director of graduate studies. There is no information on whether Rebecca was an only child or she has siblings. After she finished high school, she enrolled at the University of Indiana in Bloomington, from which she obtained a Bachelor’s degree in telecommunications. Furthermore, Rebecca also obtained a BA degree in art history and studio art from the Sewanee- the University of the South.

Career Beginnings

Following the end of her studies, Rebecca started pursuing a career in her preferred field of work, and found a spot for herself as a producer at KTRK-TV, an ABC affiliate with headquarters in Houston, Texas, remaining at the station until 2001, honing her skills and gaining experience for the future.

Rise to Prominence and White House Work

Rebecca left her post to join Washington D.C. Metro Area’s WJLA-TV, also an ABC affiliate, and remained there for the next five years, which increased her net worth to a large degree, but also helped her learn new things about television production work, especially as she was in charge of producing the newscast that aired at 6 pm. During her five years at WJLA, she was awarded the Outstanding Newscast Award, given by the Associated Press, for her coverage of the dreadful September 11, 2001 attacks, and receiving an Emmy Award nomination.

Associate Director of Communications at White House

In 2006 she left WJLA-TV and joined White House as associate director of communications during George W. Bush’s presidency, producing televised events for the 43rd President of the USA, but remained there for only one year, before joining her current company, National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA), as a chief communications officer.

Work for NBWA

On joining NBWA, Rebecca was named chief communication officer, which means that she is responsible for the entire communications strategy, including internal, membership and external communications, and is also in charge of public relations strategies. Rebecca has been in her post since then, earning a name for herself, while also increasing her net worth. Thanks to her hard work, Rebecca was named as one of the USA’s “Top 40 Under 40″ public relations professionals, by PR Week magazine, and also won the Rising Star Award, presented by the American Society of Association Executives.

Do You Know How Rich, TV Producer Rebecca Claire Miller is?

Since launching her career in the late ‘90s, Rebecca wandered from station to station, and worked for stations in Houston, Texas, New Haven, Connecticut, and Birmingham, Alabama, as well as CNN in Atlanta, until finding her place at NBWA, where she has been for more than a decade. All of this increased her net worth to a large degree, so have you ever wondered how rich Rebecca Claire Miller is, as of mid-2018? Rebecca’s net worth is estimated by authoritative sources at over $5 million, accumulated during her 20-year career in broadcast journalism.

Popularity Through Marriage; Children

Besides her work, Rebecca has also gained some fame through her marriage to Sean Spicer, a former White House Press Secretary and political strategist, who has worked on a number of political campaigns, and served as communication director in several committees. The couple married on the 13th November 2004, in a ceremony held at St. Alban’s Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C. The couple now resides in Alexandra, Virginia with their two children.

Quotes

#Quote
1Thank God my movies were flops. If I had become a movie star that would have been a personal disaster. Friends wondered what the hell I was doing at that time because acting seemed so out of character. But I knew I wasn't suited to it. I don't like my face being the focus.
2I hope that as I build a body of work, that tendency to connect me with my father in particular will diminish. Already, it varies from country to country. In Britain, my father was very important. Not that he wasn't in the States, but somehow, it seems to matter more here.
3My father was my father. His well-known-ness was something separate from that. It had no reality for me. That Arthur Miller was like a shadow person. So the only time I think about it now is when I am doing interviews and people ask me about it. Otherwise, I feel totally disconnected from that line of thought.
4Nobody who makes anything can tell someone else exactly how they do it, because they don't really know themselves.
