I help manage our terminal space, along with flying over the city and taking pictures for social media and special projects.”

With a degree in graphic design, Jenna also works on campaigns for FlyNYON’s website and basic front end development. Wearing many hats at the company, this born-and-raised New Jersey girl has been able to turn hard work into a dream job.

But of course, there are benefits. “I have flown in a helicopter over four major cities including New York, Miami, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles,” Jenna told Hoboken Girl.

Being in a niche industry, Jenna has also worked with a few celebrities and has one memory that sticks out. “One of my favorite days was when I got to meet Gwen Stefani. She was extremely kind, and she even rode in the back seat of my Jeep!”

For many businesses, the pressures of the COVID-19 pandemic were countless. For FlyNYON, it meant a shift in clientele. 

“Before the pandemic, 50% of our clients were international. Now, our demographic is from the tri-state area. When many events were canceled, people started looking for new, exciting experiences.” Jenna told Hoboken Girl.
