Prior to joining her alma matter, Miller spent time coaching and playing professionally oversees in the Austrian Softball League. Her first season began shortly after the end of her collegiate career in 2015 and last through the fall of 2016.

During her initial season, the team collected the first two wins since the program started four seasons prior. The 2016 season was the biggest impact for the program. The team finished second in the league and achieved their first league tournament appearance. They collected two golden glove wards and saw significant improvements in all categories especially for the pitching staff. This season also saw the creation of a younger division with youth players to filter into the upper division where they collected three golden glove awards as well.

Allora joined Northwestern Oklahoma State University in 2012. She was the first NCAA Division II class for Northwestern during the transition from NAIA.
