WASHINGTON — Axiom Strategies has named Emily Miller the Senior Vice President of Communications for its public affairs firm, Clout. Miller will serve as counselor and strategist for an array of Clout clients ranging from top-level political candidates to leading corporations and trade associations.

“Emily has the troika of political communications experience – journalism, State Department and Capitol Hill leadership,” said Jeff Roe, Axiom Founder and CEO. “She is one of the most well-connected people in D.C., who will bring her high energy and relentless drive to win to our clients.”

“We are bringing on board a national government strategist who is also a veteran journalist. Emily has an exceptionally rare and valuable combination of skills, experience and contacts,” said Clout President David Polyansky. “Our clients will get an insider’s perspective into how a TV and print reporter will cover them, as well as how the government will best hear their points of view on issues.”

“I’m thrilled to join the powerful and talented team at Axiom Clout,” said Miller. “I always thought I would be bored if I left the fast-paced worlds of media and politics, but I found a firm that starts every day just as fired up — to succeed for its clients.

Miller was the Senior Political Correspondent for One America News, where she covered the 2016 presidential campaign, Capitol Hill and the White House. Previously, she was the Chief Investigative Reporter for Fox 5 DC. Before TV, Miller was a print journalist, as the Senior Editor of the opinion pages at The Washington Times. She is the author of the book, “Emily Gets Her Gun,” which is about the national political debate over gun control (Regnery, 2013.) Now- President Donald Trump endorsed her book, and his quote is on the back cover.

Miller’s national political communications experience includes being the appointed Deputy Press Secretary at the U.S. Department of State during Pres. George W. Bush’s administration. She worked directly with Secretaries of State Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice to develop media strategies to achieve U.S. foreign policy objectives. On Capitol Hill, Miller was the communications director for the House Majority Whip. She developed strategic communications to support the Republican majority leadership’s legislative goals and served as senior spokesman.

Her career started as a desk assistant at NBC News. She then moved to ABC News, where she rose to associate producer for the Sunday show “This Week.”

Miller was awarded the prestigious Clark Mollenhoff Award for Investigative Reporting from the Institute on Political Journalism and the Society of Professional Journalists D.C.
