Judge Bronwyn Miller’s Haute Miami Picks

Bronwyn Miller

It’s pretty safe to say that judge Bronwyn Miller is not only one of the most respected, but also the most well-heeled judges around. In 2005, Miller was appointed to fill a County Court vacancy by Florida Governor Jeb Bush, then in 2010, was appointed to the Circuit Court by Governor Charlie Crist. When she’s not making important judgements, winning awards like the the Alan R. Schwartz Judicial Excellence Award, the Millenium Movers “Movers and Shakers Award,” she’s deep in the Miami philanthropy scene. Aside from attending all the hautest charity galas, she serves on the board of Chapman Partnership and Big Brothers Big Sisters. She has volunteered her time for the Frost Museum, Fairchild Tropical Garden, and Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. Did we mention she’s also a mother of three? We’ll have whatever she’s having! Here is her Miami.
