Kristin KeenFounder & President

How My Coworkers Describe Me: Visionary, Driven, Impassioned, Advocate

Passionate about: World domination

Kristin lived and worked for five years in Kolkata, India where she encountered the life-stealing effects of the area's sex trade on a daily basis. She helped co-found a business that could offer these women a safe haven. Today, Sari Bari is a thriving business that employs more than 120 people in Kolkota who create handmade blankets and other products from traditional fabrics. Upon her return to Jacksonville, Kristin felt called to fight the sex trade on a local level, and Rethreaded was born. Beginning by forming relationships with women on the street and making prison visits, she knew the biggest need was for a safe, supportive work environment where these women could earn money while learning a skill and experiencing continued healing through community. In 2015 Kristin was awarded the "40 under 40" up and coming business leaders in Jacksonville and was chosen as one of Girls Inc. "Women of Vision" awards. In 2016 Kristin Keen was recognized by the Florida Retailer Federation as Outstanding Retail Leader of the Year.  When she’s not at Rethreaded, Kristin is usually biking, doing yoga, or eating at some of Jacksonville's best local restaurants.
