Dr. Jill Hlavac Miller, a Nebraska native, graduated from the University of Nebraska with a Bachelor of Science degree in comprehensive mathematics and physics.

Dr. Jill returned to Sheridan Eyecare in 2002 after moving to Colorado in 1997 to marry Roger Miller, a police detective with the Broomfield Police Department.
