Gillian Miller started her position running the visitor services at the museum in June. She enjoys the daily variety of work that the position offers. Never before has she sewn eyes on a dinosaur outfit or fed live worms to an African Lung Fish!

Gillian’s hometown is Brighton, England. She has been fortunate enough to have lived and worked in London, Vancouver, Washington DC, and Cape Cod. Gillian moved permanently to Vancouver in 1986 where she married and worked in credit card services for a major credit card company. Gillian has worked at numerous other occupations, everything from being a nanny, Montessori teacher, manager of the Chemainus Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Centre and working, marketing and sales at a winery in Cobble Hill. On Vancouver Island, Gillian has lived in Sooke, Chemainus, Courtenay and, a year ago, moved to her funky Royston home where she lives very happily with her Bascottie dog, Gertie. Gillian feels that the Comox Valley is the best place she has lived and loves working with all the dedicated staff at the museum.
