Jocelyn E. Carter-Miller ’79 BUS

President, TechEdVentures

In the course of her career, Jocelyn Carter-Miller has saved Barbie, launched Motorola in Latin America, and is now helping disadvantaged students excel in school and envision a better future for themselves.  As a product manager at Mattel, Inc. in the 1980s, she led the team that re-envisioned and reinvigorated the classic Barbie line to include multicultural, career and collector dolls.  By 1999, after directing Latin American and Caribbean Operations for Motorola, Inc., she became the company’s corporate vice president and chief marketing officer, followed by a stint as executive vice president and chief marketing officer for Office Depot.  In 2004, she applied her corporate skills to the non-profit world as president of TechEdVentures, a company started in 1998 by her husband, Edward Miller, and dedicated to the creation of charter schools and community-based programs that help prepare students for college and meaningful careers.
