Meet Our Team in Clive, Iowa


Kirstie is a West Des Moines native but now resides in Clive. She attended Central College where she got her Liberal Arts degree and majored in Exercise Science. While attending college, she was a member of her college dance team and had studied abroad in Wales, United Kingdom. While studying abroad, she traveled to 8 different countries and has since added many more to her list of places she’d wish to visit! Since college, she has continued her childhood passion of competitive baton twirling by coaching lessons part-time. She is also a part-time collegiate cheer coach! Although she likes to remain active, she enjoys quiet nights at home with her family and her dog, Buster. Kirstie joined our team in October 2021 and can’t wait to help you pick out the perfect pair of glasses!


Ruth is a retired veteran teacher with teaching experience in Home Ec and art at Pella Christion and Newton.  She has work experience in the business, real estate,  retail and insurance fields as well.  She received her BS from Central College and her MST from Drake University.  While teaching she was awarded a teaching internship with the Maytag Corp and an Exchange trip to Taiwan to visit sister schools and former exchange students. She tutored many students as well and now substitute teaches.

She and her husband both grew up on farms outside of Prairie City and were high school sweethearts.  They have two married children and five grandchildren whose activities keep them busy (not to mention two cats and a kitten at home.)  She enjoys camping,  decorating, reading and gardening and preserves many quarts of produce each year. She also enjoys Bible studies and sewing, especially with vintage patterns and fabrics.

Ruth has worked at various positions in her daughter’s optometry practice since it opened in Clive.  She currently works in the office at least one day a week and works remotely as well.
