Founder and CEO, Kristen Williams incepted the idea for Routeeny while planning to leave her 5 year old and six month old for the day with her mother-in-law. After struggling to capture all the information she wanted to convey via pen and paper, Kristen realized not only how tedious and stressful the process of leaving her children was, but how potentially harmful it could be if details were forgotten. She set off on a mission to create a simple solution for parents and caregivers everywhere.
Kristen grew up in rural VT and had her first job baby-sitting when she was 11 years old, learning at a young age the weighty responsibility of caring for others. Kristen studied Corporate Communications in college, launching her career at a high-tech PR firm outside Boston. She soon transitioned o Property Management when she moved to Austin, TX to be with her future husband. She and her husband, Travis, had their first son, Austin in 2015 and Kristen stepped out of her Property Management role to assume the role of full-time caregiver. Four years later, Kristen gave birth to their daughter, Raven.
Kristen and her family still reside in Austin, TX, where they enjoy all things outdoors, hanging with their amazing community, and practicing a sustainable lifestyle to help combat climate change.
