Suzie Miller

Suzie works as a Solutions Architect with Amazon Web Services (AWS) helping customers in the UK and Ireland with their journey into cloud adoption.

This is a technical role which draws from her 20 year career working in IT. As part of this role she also mentors and trains those starting off their careers within AWS, on different graduate and intern schemes.

In her first year of working at AWS she launched and Chairs the UK chapter of AmazonPwD an employee led network for People with Disabilities. AmazonPwD was established by employees to help make Amazon a more diverse and inclusive place to work, while also reflecting the diversity of our customers. It’s open to employees with disabilities and allies. The group supports employees through raising awareness, supporting career development, participating in community outreach and improving access for Amazonians and customers.

Suzie is passionate about universal and inclusive design in technology, and how this leads to more accessible products. She is always looking at ways AWS services can be combined to create better experiences for people with disabilities and in turn the greater population as a whole.

Previously Suzie has worked in global companies in areas such as Banking and Finance, Oil and Gas building IT platforms and payments systems still used across the globe.

Outside of work Suzie volunteers as an Independent Visitor. The Independent Visitor Programme matches volunteers with children and young people who are particularly vulnerable and in long term Foster Care. Each volunteer is matched with a child or young person in care in their local area. Volunteers commit to spending time with their young person each month – helping their child or young person to engage in new experiences, share interests and hobbies and have fun.
