Smart Sassy Seniors is a space to learn, connect and engage with others who are out to redefine what it means to age in today’s world.

We are rocking the second half of our lives.

We are drawing wisdom from our experiences; we are sharing that wisdom, setting intentions for our next great stages in life, and we are flourishing.

Smart Sassy Seniors is the brainchild of Jennifer Jefferies, a realistic naturopath and present day wise woman; and Jen’s wife Alice MacKinnon, a mind-body-breath-movement queen.
