Susan Keller Kistler, Owner of Specs Optical, started wearing glasses in sixth grade and thought they were so unattractive she would only wear them to see the board. A graduate of Stanford University and Stanford Graduate School of Business, she left her career in the mainframe computer industry behind when she moved to Nashville from Washington, DC (with stints in New York City and Silicon Valley). She spent 15 years managing an ophthalmology practice and has also completed a two year opticianry program in Richmond. In 2011, Susan passed the two national exams (ABO and NCLE) in order to become a certified optician. Since starting Specs in late 2003, she enjoys matching her many pairs of glasses to her mood and her outfit and not only does she wear them morning to night, she even keeps them on in pictures.
