Our Office Team
Meet the experienced and friendly office team members who make Broadway Vision Source the leading provider of vision care products and services in Seattle.
Reliable, hard working, and a jack of all trades, Ken has over 12 years of experience in opticianry. He is proficient at “edging” spectacle lenses using our Santinelli LEX 1000 lens edger to custom fit them into frames, which gives him unique insight into which frames are most appropriate for your lenses, and visa-versa. In his words: it’s about “the art of finding that right jewelry for the face.” Ken is also an excellent resource for frame repairs, and adjustments due to his hands-on approach and craftsmanship.
Ken is a native of California, who – along with his family – enjoy exploring the great Northwest.

Warren Ruby, L.D.O.
Known as the ‘Wizard of Eyes’ on Capitol Hill, Warren Ruby brings over 30 years of optical and managerial experience to Broadway Vision Source. He offers unique expertise in selecting the right eye wear for clients based upon their facial shapes, coloring, and style-expression. “My desire is to help people look and see their very best! In my experience, it takes another person with an objective eye to compliment the individual’s face with eyeglasses. Educating your clients as to the particular styles which suit them best is most challenging and exciting to me!”
Prior to joining us in 2010, Warren was General Manager of an optical boutique on Broadway, and also owned his own optical business in Edmonds, WA. For a time, he was District Manager of Lunettes Cartier, USA.
‘The best compliment on my work comes when another person sees my clients in their new eyewear and states: “Where did you get those? They fit you perfectly!”
Warren is a graduate of the University of Washington, and bestows a powerful operatic voice.

However, Anna’s strengths in effective interpersonal communications and administrative skills earned her the role as our Administrative Coordinator. Anna assures that your experience is second to none from the moment you contact us, to the moment you leave. Anna has been twice selected by her BVS peers as Employee of the Year.
Anna was born and raised in the Chicago-land area and still roots for her Chicago Bears. She and her husband are proud parents, who enjoy hiking, mountain biking, and weight lifting. Anna also is a certified Medical Assistant. She will help address your questions and concerns related to your experience at Broadway Vision Source.
John was previously with Furla, then Cole Hahn in downtown Seattle when he decided to switch from high-end shoe and garment sales to optical sales at a nearby optical boutique. His “eye” for fashion and pleasant demeanor gained him notoriety as he built his client base and moved onward to join BVS in 2010. John has since excelled in every facet as a frame stylist, from selecting that frame that’s just the right one for you, to providing you easy to understand lens options.
