Get to Know Dr. Lillie

Significant optometric contributions included, Nick’s greatest accomplishment in life is marrying his wife, Ashley, and raising their four children. To him, family is everything. Nick enjoys bringing the kiddos to see their grandparents on cozy Sunday afternoons to hang out and watch sports — while cheering on his favorite NFL team, the Detroit Lions! The Lillie household also likes going on shopping adventures that invariably end at a restaurant. They love food, and that even includes putting pineapple on pizza!

Summertime is his favorite time of year. Nick relishes outdoorsy activities, including hiking, running, inner tubing, and lounging on the beach. One day, he hopes to bring the whole family out west to climb some of the Rocky Mountain’s famous fourteeners, as he’s scaled their snow-capped peaks before. He hopes to share with his children the transformative perspective granted by their awe-inspiring views of the horizon and the surrounding wilderness.
