Our Clients

  • We help forward-thinking organizations develop constituent marketing campaigns and workforce development programs that foster greater engagement and human flourishing for their stakeholders and target audiences.
  • We serve service-oriented professionals, nonprofit leaders, activists, public servants, students, and business leaders who have a passion for social justice and innovation.

Jenny is a consummate professional. She understands the science behind positive psychology and can explain it in a way that is easily understandable. We worked together on a project to support youth impacted by incarceration, and she devised activities for teens to understand and regulate their emotions that were research-based, engaging, and empowering. I highly recommend Jenny Brennan.
