2017 marks Kelly’s 20th anniversary with SPECS OPTICAL, and as our Senior Optician, she radiates love for this store and its clients on the daily! When not helping people find the latest and greatest in eyewear, Kelly can be found out with friends enjoying the food scene, rocking out at Soundset, or just appreciating the scenery via a walk around the lakes.KELLY SCHMIDT
Steve’s first work in the optical business began in 1994 – the year of The Lion King, True Lies, and Pulp Fiction. One could argue that all four are timeless classics.
Steve is an ABOC certified optician – which means he studied for the big test. More importantly, he has a knack for matching frames to faces. Artistic frames matched to faces tell a story, convey emotion, and hint at the personna within.
When he’s not practicing his craft at SPECS, Steve is a proud uncle of six and an avid Minnesota Wild and Twins fan.
Came to Minneapolis in ’88 via Colorado. Graduated from MCAD in ’92. Got my foot in the door at SPECS OPTICAL because of Kelly. Love to spend my free time working out or watching my daughter become a lovely young lady.RAYMOND HAISCH
