Jennifer Hawks, host of My Yukon Life, first visited the Yukon in 1997 while on a solo road trip through parts of northern Canada. She felt an immediate connection with the Yukon Territory, as if she’d come home to a place she’d never been before.
Jennifer continued taking road trips through Canada every two years, eventually venturing north of the Arctic Circle.
In the winter of 2003, Jennifer enrolled in a Yukon flight school to fulfill her lifelong dream of becoming a licensed private pilot. Flying over glaciers and through remote mountain valleys was everything she’d ever hoped it would be. She has never left the north.
In addition to her hosting and production duties for My Yukon Life podcast radio, Jennifer is the CEO of Ground Effect Media (the parent company of My Yukon Life) which is headquartered in Olathe, Kansas.
