Jennifer Cook

Vice President, Sales

With Air Planning Since: July 2020 (Going on 20 years in the industry!)

Best Place I've Traveled To: To date my favorite trip was a bike trip from Olat, Spain to Sant Feliu de Guixols, Spain.  It wasn't about seeing big sights and more about the pure joy of riding a bike with my husband and children everyday through beautiful unspoiled countryside. 

Favorite Weekend Activity: On a normal weekend it would be relaxing with a coffee on the back porch and then taking a long walk or bike ride.   For a special weekend it would be going home to Connecticut in early October to go leaf peeping with my Mom.
