Optometric Mission Trip to La Guardia, Mexico

My commitment to providing patients with exceptional care and individualized attention is paramount. I chose the profession of optometry because it allows me to develop and build one-on-one relationships with my patients and their families. As an eye care doctor, I am privileged to take care of one of your greatest senses, your vision, and I look forward to meeting you and using my skills and expertise to deliver the highest quality of general eye care possible.

Dr. Mills originally grew up in central Pennsylvania and completed both undergrad and optometry schooling in her home state. Getting tired of the cold, she and her husband decided to move south and escape the long cold winters of the north. She has lived in Charlotte since 2004 with her family and now calls Charlotte home. She has been happily married to her high school sweetheart since 2000, although they have been together since 1995! Outside of being an exceptional eye care doctor, Dr. Mills enjoys any outdoor activity, but especially running and golfing. In the fall, she can be found watching her favorite football team, Penn State. Her most treasured time is spent with her family and friends.
