Happy One-Year Anniversary, Jamie! March 22 2016, 0 Comments
One year ago Jamie walked in the doors of Rethreaded. I have watched her grow into a strong, compassionate, and servant-hearted woman who is living into the fullness of who she is created to be. She inspires us on a daily basis with her humility and wisdom. I am proud to call her my co-worker and fellow world changer. -Kristin Keen, founder and President

Q: You have moved from production to marketing over the past year. How was that transition?

Today I feel like I have a voice, and the knowledge and skills to make that voice heard. I look forward to continuing to grow in this role at Rethreaded, and am really excited for what the future holds.
