Miller was born in Allentown, Pennsylvania. She graduated from Allentown's William Allen High School in 1985 [Citation | last1=Pearson | first1=Dan | title=Lara Jill Gets Break To Attend Allen Ceremony | newspaper=The Morning Call | pages=B.01 | year=1985 | date=June 13, 1985 | url=] . Her mother a homemaker and her father a pajama factory owner, Miller's professional acting career began on Broadway, where she appeared as Amaryllis in a revival of "The Music Man" with Dick Van Dyke. She is also credited as Willow Armstrong.

In 1981, after her appearance on Broadway, she joined the cast of "Gimme a Break!", playing the role of the tomboyish Samantha (Sam) Kanisky, opposite Nell Carter.

When the series ended its six year run on NBC in 1987, Miller returned east, graduating Phi Beta Kappa and magna cum laude from New York University, where she also played on the university's women's varsity tennis team and continued to perform on stages around the country. Four years later, she graduated from Fordham University School of Law, leaving graduation early to portray Peter Pan in a production at the Pennsylvania Youth Theater in Pennsylvania. She subsequently obtained her Bar association license to practice law in New Jersey, New York and her native Pennsylvania.

In 1999, Miller returned to Hollywood, California and resumed her on-camera acting career with recurring roles on the Nickelodeon series "The Amanda Show" and "All That", as well as "General Hospital." She also began working in animated series, lending her voice to characters such as Kari in "Digimon" (both the series and the feature film), Koko in "Zatch Bell!", Alejo in Astro Boy, one of the Tachikoma mini-tanks in "", and Scheris Adjani in "s-CRY-ed." Miller also provided the singing voice of Dorothy Gale in the NPR adaptation of L. Frank Baum's "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz", and the voices of the titular characters on Cartoon Network's "The Life and Times of Juniper Lee" and the PBS Kids "prequel" to "Clifford the Big Red Dog, Clifford's Puppy Days".

Currently (as of 2008), in addition to the recurring roles of Pookie, Wiki and Tini on Disney Channel's Higglytown Heroes, Heruka of "Daigunder", and regular guest-starring roles on several other animated series, she also stars in a the Nick Jr series "Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!" in the role of Widget, the show's problem solver, and also appears on Nick's "Zoey 101" live-action series.
