Carlee Mills

Carlee lives in Gardner with her husband of fifteen years, three of their eight children (ages 14-23) and five pets. She is a momma to three and step-momma to five, four boys and four girls with life experience raising a blended and biracial family in Central MA. When she is not wearing her mom hat, she is busy working on the three side business she loves that focuses on healthy living, essential oils, and nature! She started her own business, Peaceful Roots that focuses on providing nature-based learning opportunities to all ages with a concentration on our overall mental health. When Carlee is not at home with her family, you can find her hiking all over New England taking nature photos, reading a good book, gardening, or doing yoga with alpacas!
