Front Desk, Optometric Technician

I recently joined Miller Family Eyecare June, 2021. I am from Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I love helping people and making them smile. I enjoy traveling, trying new things, and spending time with my family. My favorite tv show will have to be a tie between Hawaii 5-O and White collar, also my favorite ice cream is Mint Chocolate. I really like that I get the opportunity to grow and learn so much at MFEC, and that we treat each other like family!



Front Desk, Optometric Technician

I grew up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I recently joined Miller Family EyeCare in July of 2022.

In my free time, I enjoy traveling, spending time with my daughter, and making bath bombs for my small business. I went to massage school in Anamosa, Iowa. I know it might be plain but my favorite ice cream is vanilla.



Ophthalmic Technician

I am originally from Long Beach CA, But have grown up here in the Cedar Rapids area for most of my life. I initially started out in eye care with another company as an Eyewear Sales Consultant in 2018 where I found my passion for all things Optical. I then went on to continue my education at Kirkwood Community College where I received my Optician Training Certification early 2020. Soon after that I started on with Miller Family Eyecare as an Optometric Technician. From taking medical photos, to fitting frames, I strive to make sure that every patient leaves here feeling comfortable and confident.

I spend my time away from work with my Daughter. We enjoy getting out and trying new things, especially new ice cream shops and flavors!! Her favorite is Vanilla With Sprinkles, and mine is Coffee Oreo.



Front Desk, Optometric Technician

I am a native of western Nebraska and moved to Iowa with my husband in 2020. I joined Miller Family Eyecare July 2022. When I'm not at work, you can find me at home hanging out with my fur babies, reading a book or driving my husband around the golf course. My favorite ice cream is vanilla bean with chocolate syrup in a bowl!

I recently joined Miller Family Eyecare in June, 2018 with 26 years of optical sales and management experience.  I am from North Central Iowa.

Cooking healthy food is my passion.  My dream vacation would be a trip to Ireland. Being kind, caring and compassionate is very important to me. I love and live life to the fullest!

I grew up in Waterloo, Iowa. I would love to take a trip to Japan to experience the different food and culture, but most importantly the food! My favorite ice cream is either chocolate salted caramel from this tiny place in Madison, WI or Halo Top peanut butter cup (then I can eat more!)

I love the opportunity to provide custom, individual service to each patient. Buying glasses doesn’t have to be like going to the dentist. It should be exciting, enjoyable, and a little weird. I hope the world sees me as relaxed, laid back and not too serious. It’s just life, it should be fun!



Meredith Optician


Board Certified Optician/Optical Manager

I grew up in Urbandale, IA and have called Cedar Rapids my home since 2005. I love to travel wherever the wind takes me or at least until the funds hold out! I have been honing my craft since 1997, when I started out as an optical tech. Over the years, I've experienced every facet of the optical industry, from behind the scenes in the lab, to helping patients find their inner voice with their eyewear! I am true believer in letting your eyewear express who you are and who you want to be. I may be quiet sometimes, but don’t let that fool you. My sass is hidden right beneath the surface, just ask my 2 beautiful daughters!

Front Desk Manager/Insurance Specialist

I grew up in Belle Plaine, Iowa. I believe I already had my dream vacation! I traveled to Greece, with my entire immediate family in the summer of 2013, to meet my father’s side. I have 2 uncles, an aunt and several cousins there. One day, I'd love to experience Hawaii or New York City. I love being a part of a locally, female owned business. We are a tight-knit and family like team!

Office Mom/Office Manager/Insurance Specialist

I grew up in Shellsburg, Iowa. I have traveled to deserts, mountains, beaches and Germany. My husband and I travel somewhere new every year. I love Baskin & Robins peanut butter and chocolate ice cream. What I love most about MFEC are my co-workers, I consider them friends. Being a small local business, we have the opportunity to get to know our patients and provide a more personal experience. Even though my two kids are out of the house, I still see myself as a mom first.



Patient Care Coordinator

I was born in Guatemala and moved to Cedar Rapids 14 years ago and stayed here since. I am bilingual, speak both English and Spanish. I am going to school to be a dental hygienist! ​My dream vacation is to go to Santorini, Greece and my favorite ice cream flavor is coffee! Miller Family Eye Care is full of smiling faces and we can't wait to have you for your next visit with us!
