Although Thanksgiving has come and gone, the gratitude felt by everyone here at Keen never fades away. For nearly two decades, our platform has been dedicated to connecting our users to a network of trusted psychic advisors – providing advice, clarity, and empowerment through meaningful conversations on Keen. This year, we wanted to celebrate Thanksgiving by reflecting on what the people at our company found meaningful in our own lives. So we went around the office and asked each other, “What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?” The spirit of gratitude filled our office (and our hearts!) and we saw this as an opportunity to spread the Thanksgiving spirit by sharing some of our answers and introducing a few of our Keen employees to you!
What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?
“I am thankful for my son. He is just over one year old. Watching him grow and discover new things renews my awe of the universe.” – James, Infrastructure Architect
“I am thankful for great friends, wonderful colleagues, a roof over my head, and the health and energy to enjoy living in one of the best cities in the world!” – Sara, Staff Accountant
“After the CA fires, this comes at such an opportune time. I am incredibly grateful for my support team #TeamShymala. Everyday I continue to fight because of the people that love me and are there for me endlessly. Most of all during this time of year, I like to thank my mother and birthmother. I was given up for adoption by 9-year-old little girl and she made the most selfless decision to give her babygirl up for an adoption and ensure she went to a family in America. Because of my birthmother and my family that adopted me, I go home and sleep safely every night, have had an education, and have had some of the most amazing experiences in my life. I am grateful to her for ensuring I had a better life. Thank you to my mother’s for giving me life, shelter, food, education and peace.” – Shymala, Live Services Coordinator
“I feel blessed and thankful for pretty much every part of my life. My beautiful wife and three incredible daughters fill my life with love. I have a group of friends that fill my life with laughter. And I get to work with an amazing group of people that continually humble me with their dedication to helping others.” – Warren, CEO

“I'm thankful that I work in an office with amazing people. Even on days when I wake up on the wrong side of the bed, it doesn't take long for someone in the office to put a smile on my face. Being in IT, getting to work with every single person in this office is truly a pleasure.” – Sean, Systems Administrator
