BJ Miller, FASID, CCIM

BJ Miller founded The Vision Group in 1992 and has used the company as a platform for the delivery of projects and research on environments in healthcare and elder care settings. Working for over a decade in a real estate development group (URA) she founded in 2001 deepened her understanding of urban design and the development of mixed-use historic projects. Her understanding of the impact of the built environment on health and wellness was developed into an intercollegiate course elective for the University of Tennessee in 2008, and as a Seminar Series based in Nashville that began in 2009. Organizing leadership in both her public and private work, she assists multidisciplinary fields of expertise to identify and bring shared VISION into reality.

BJ’s ASID involvement includes past ASID National Board member, Past Chapter President of Tennessee, and she is also active with the Carolinas chapter. Recently, she represented ASID as a speaker at High Point Market and The Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS).
