Copy Editor

Jennifer grew up fascinated by travel and transportation. She combined these passions by learning to fly. She spent over a decade flying around North America-flying crews in and out of diamond mines, taking tourists up to the Arctic to see caribou roaming and watch the Northern lights, and ended up as a Captain on a twin-turbo-engine plane flying exclusively for government officials. In order to fulfill her "need for speed" nowadays, Jennifer has turned her interests to the auto industry. Working for ArabWheels gives plenty of inspiration; and even inspires her to rev up the Porsche 911 that she and her husband drive "for fun."
