Carrie Miller started out her career in an office environment at the age of eight working in her father’s law firm. She was taught early that a strong work ethic and honest values were key to success. She worked her way up within the office starting as Receptionist to a Personal Executive Assistant to the CEO. She has worked primarily with private & public commercial shopping center REIT’s. Carrie has utilized her networking and customer service skills working with investors, clients, vendors, assistants and colleagues to form a strong network.
                Carrie is the founder and CEO of Eagle EA Consulting, an early stage startup that assists Executive Assistant’s with business coaching, educational development, personal/professional branding and problem solving.  She coaches assistants on salary negotiations and teaches them how to ensure they are protected when on-boarding with a new organization. She is very passionate about bringing awareness to the workplace harassment epidemic and feels strongly that Ed Hiner’s book First, Fast, Fearless and The Hiner Group’s leadership training program F4, will educate and train employees within organizations globally to become ethical leaders and more effective teams together.  


​​​​​​​​​​​​          Ed Hiner was born and raised in Virginia's Blue Ridge mountains.  He grew up with a thirst for competition, and developed an indomitable will to win that would serve him well in his life's work as a warrior and a leader.  He thrived in team sports, and was a regional standout in football, wrestling, and baseball.   

          Ed graduated Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL (BUD/S) training in 1993 with class 189.  He later attended Officer Candidate School, where he earned his commission as a distinguished honor graduate and class president.  He had an acclaimed 20-year career as a Navy SEAL, during which he made nine major deployments on five continents.  Twice awarded the Bronze Star with “V” for valor and combat leadership, Ed commanded hundreds of direct combat missions and low visibility operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, Southeast Asia and Central America.  In addition to his combat tours, he led BUD/S instructors, managed the training program for the West coast SEAL Teams, and was in charge of all SEAL basic and advanced training. 

          Ed now offers up this vast experience base as a coach and consultant specializing in leadership, team building, mental toughness, resiliency and personal conflict resolution.  He utilizes the principles from his book "First Fast Fearless, How to Lead Like a Navy SEAL," to help individuals and corporations build and lead effective teams.  He believes leaders are only able to unleash the full potential of their team when they first understand and work through their own fears.  First, Fast, Fearless!!!

"The Man in the Arena"

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

- Teddy Roosevelt
