Hi my name's Matt (Head Chandler + Founder)

I graduated with degrees in Sports Medicine from the University of Georgia; go dawgs. When I'm not at a coffee shop getting my fix or reading — for work or pleasure — I'm either playing sports or going outside. My faith is very important to me which is probably the main reason I started Rekindle. I wanted to partner with others to love people and be a steward of creation. Also, I’m married to this wonderfully patient and creative woman. --->

P.S. She took most of the photos on the website! She's awesome and caring. I can't say enough good things about her.


Heyy I'm Kayley! (Content & Digital Marketing Specialist)

I graduated from UGA in 2016 with a degree in Marketing and International Business. I currently work at a marketing firm in Athens and I love visual storytelling. When I'm not doing photography I'm probably reading or writing. (shameless plug here's my website: http://kayleylorraine.com). I love going outdoors as well and enjoy capturing the beauty in people. I'm also a chapstick enthusiast and love the Lord. And I have a lotta love for the guy above!


Kailey (Digital Marketing Coordinator)

Hey y'all! I graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in Advertising, a minor in Fashion and a certificate in Entrepreneurship. I currently work for a campus ministry at UGA called the Wesley Foundation, specifically within the Freshman ministry, Freshley! Telling stories is a huge passion of mine and I love to do that through creative media. I'm a firm believer that crazy people are the best people! I love to hang out with my friends, read on my porch, sing + dance and drink an iced oat milk latte from 1000 Faces Coffee. 


Rekindle Candle Co

What's up fam my name is Camden (Sales & Marketing Specialist)

What's good fam?! Ya boii just graduated from the University of Georgia as a Marketing major. However, I am more than just a graduate. Some of you may know me from my nicknames: midnight cobra, the protector, and even grandma. My goal is to provide people an outlet to buy candles, so yes I am your sales guy. All transactions can go through me. On the flip side I am a Steph Curry enthusiast, love Lecrae, and enjoy serving youth of greater Athens. #CandleSZN #BeanTalk #Beanski
