Deana Miller is a native of Spencer, WV. She owned and operated Scenic Portraits, a photography studio for over 10 years. This provided the flexibility to make her own schedule as well as stay home with her small children. Her husband received a promising job opportunity in Putnam County which afforded her the option to further her education and become a PTA. She was drawn to the physical therapy field after years of watching how exercise helped her father manage pain following a motor vehicle accident which amputated his right arm. Deana graduated from Mountwest Community and Technical College in July 2017 with an AAS as a Physical Therapist Assistant. She received her LSVT BIG certification that same month for treatment of Parkinson’s. The patients she often treats include wrist and hand injuries, neurological conditions, work and sport related injuries. Deana currently resides in Hurricane with her husband and two daughters. Her interests include anything that involves water, whether it is the beach, jet skiing, water parks or just enjoying the pool in the backyard. She still enjoys photographing families when her schedule permits. Her family regularly enters 5k runs together and loves hiking at local and state parks.
