She was one of the four members to form Vanilla Ninja in 2002 and wrote lyrics for the song "Club Kung Fu", that made Vanilla Ninja well known in Estonia. She continued as a lyricist for many of the band's songs like "Birds Of Peace", "I Don't Care at All", "Black Symphony" etc. Although she initially played a more 'background' role in the group, she featured heavily on their 2005 album Blue Tattoo due to Maarja Kivi (the former lead singer) leaving in 2004. Järvis-Milder often acted as the spokesperson for the group in interviews, and on numerous occasions has been dubbed as the best looking and most stylish member. In 2005 she was voted Estonia's sexiest woman of the year by the readers of Estonia's best-selling gossip magazine "Kroonika".

Järvis-Milder gave out the Estonian votes in Eurovision 2011, which mathematically confirmed Azerbaijan's first victory in the competition.

She has worked for different Estonian TV channels since 2002, including TV3, MTV Baltics, and is currently a host and a journalist at the Estonian Public Broadcasting. She has hosted shows such as "Pealtnägija", "Eesti Laul", "Jõulutunnel" etc. At the moment she is one of the presenters at the Estonian Television´s morning program "Terevisioon".
