Director of Public Affairs
While attending Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, Jennifer was named Editor-in-Chief of the student newspaper, The Vanderbilt Hustler. It was there that a true love and knowledge of journalism and media took root. In the years following college, Jennifer worked for several newspapers including The Tennesean and the Longview News Journal. Jennifer started her own print magazine called Viva East Texas and after a successful sale of the publication, entered the world of commission-based sales.
From 2004 to 2014, Jennifer worked in private aviation, private club membership sales with ClubCorp and insurance restoration sales with a nationally franchised company. She also served on various community boards including the Longview Museum of Fine Arts, Trinity School of Texas board of directors for 6 years and was named a Longview Texas person who makes a difference.
Jennifer entered the world of entrepreneurship with her husband Landon in 2010 when they established Gator Services in Marshall, Texas. Jennifer was instrumental in office management and public relations as the family expanded their presence in the oil and gas industry to also include East Texas Equipment Rental, Katy Saltwater Disposal Company, OW Trucking and OW Heritage Holdings.
Jennifer was lucky to be able to create a home/work life balance as they increased their family from two to five in less than 5 years. With the introduction of their three daughters, having a laptop and a wifi connection became very important!
Jennifer took on a leading role with Landon in the acquisitions of transportation/hospitality companies in Colorado. She currently holds the position of Director of Marketing and Social Media for Alpine Express, Telluride Express and American Spirit Shuttle. Jennifer is invigorated by the exciting and growing field of Colorado tourism.Contact Jennifer
