Transforming Lives Through Humanism
Introduction

Jennifer helps transform people lives through Humanism by teaching them to be the best most ethical people they can be. Her work focuses on 3 main areas.

1) how to make better decisions thru critical thinking

2) how to improve interpersonal relationships thru compassion

3) how to infuse your life with meaning and purpose thru applied ethics

You will be amazed at how much easier life is when you make being ethical a priority!

Bragging rights
I'm a 3rd generation Humanist on both sides and ... a Mayflower Descendant. Not bragging, just saying.
