Mission Driven

Buildings, people, and the environment are all connected.

My mission is to make buildings better. Buildings, people, and the natural environment are all connected. Sustainable practices respect these connections and create buildings that are healthy, efficient, and durable.  

My commitment to resource conservation, community resilience, and science-based solutions ensures that quality results are delivered to every client, regardless of project size and scope. 

Based in Fairhope, Alabama, service areas include coastal and inland areas of Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, and Louisiana.

Hello! I’m Anna Keene Miller. I founded Keen Living to give you the tools and knowledge you need to improve buildings. I enjoy collaborating with partners who value comprehensive analysis and meaningful, measurable outcomes.

After completing my Environmental Studies degree from New College at the University of Alabama, I worked for environmental non-profits, specializing in education, outreach, and development. I was working for a coastal non-profit in 2010 when the Deepwater Horizon Oil Disaster struck the Gulf Coast. 

The oil spill was a wakeup call. Our coastal economy depends on a healthy environment. It’s clear that we are not reducing energy demand fast enough. This puts our entire community at risk. When the opportunity to shift into energy efficient construction came along, I jumped right in.

My early work focused on energy assessments for a local construction industry. I inspected new and existing homes, collecting data on building components and measuring air and duct leakage. I analyzed the data, created work scopes for contractors, and confirmed improvements after they were completed. These assessments evolved to include broader issues like moisture management and indoor air quality. 

Continuing education and trends analysis are key aspects of my professional approach. I’m a Smart Home America Technical Advisor and a member of the Green Coast Council.  I’m a BPI Certified Professional, a RESNET HERS Rater, and a Fortified Home Evaluator. Let’s discuss how I will make your building better.
