CEO/FOUNDER

Letter to my Chic Jetsetters:

Hi Chic Jetsetters! I am so happy that you are visiting our website and learning more about the brand. Jetsetter Chic is all about you! It is the ONLY travel lifestyle brand for female jetsetters that puts them at the forefront of travel! Edgy, chic, classy, and smart are what we exude. We are world citizens, sophisticated thinkers, and global change makers. We travel for work because our job demands it and at times we travel for pleasure. We are women from all areas of life who travel as business executives, entrepreneurs, and flight crew. Simply put, travel is our lifestyle. We are going places and making it happen!

I came up with this idea in 2014 when I first started flying as a flight attendant. I noticed on my flights that travel brands and products were heavily marketed to men while women were generally overlooked. I also saw that with constant travel I was always in search of the right products in between flights that would help with the stress of traveling. Female passengers would ask me about the best products to use when traveling and if they were TSA-Compliant. I put the idea on hold after getting accepted to Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism in New York City to focus on travel news. I spent two years flying from Atlanta to New York every week to complete the program. Now after receiving a Masters degree and visiting 24 countries, Jetsetter Chic was finally launched November 2018.

I look forward to building a relationship with all my Chic Jetsetters by saving you time from shopping for travel necessities, bringing you the best in travel trends, and keeping you Jetsetter Chic. The future of airline travel is female!  

Fun Facts about me: I have climbed the Teotihuacan pyramids of Mexico, went underground to see real diamonds of Colombia, and swam with sharks in the Dominican Republic! I received my undergraduate degree from Spelman College and was a featured reporter on CBS Radio, Cox Radio, and Cumulus Media.

From my desk in the blue sky,

Jennifer “Jaki” Johnson

CEO/Founder, Jetsetter Chic

Ashley Ogbonna

IN-HOUSE COUNSEL

Ashley O. has been flying since she was considered an “unaccompanied minor” to visit her grandmother during the holidays and summer breaks in Texas. However, her desire to visit other cultures was not born until she experienced her first international flight during an oral history scholars’ program while attending undergrad at Spelman College. The opportunity allowed her to go to Kingston, Jamaica where she witnessed people driving on the “wrong side of the road” and meeting a Chinese Jamaican for the first time! Since then Ashley has gone on to travel to 12 countries!

Ashley's belief that women should reject societies notion that you can only follow one dream at a time and her experience in witnessing the work ethic of our CEO/Founder attracted Ashley to our company. She is eager to bring her legal mind to the brand to keep women at the forefront of travel!

When Ashley isn’t traveling, she is working as a disability attorney and co-running ShuEsq, The Shoe Bar, a women’s upscale shoe boutique. Fun facts: Ashley loves monkeys and will go to every monkey excursion possible. Her favorite one thus far is going to visit monkey island in Phi Phi islands, Thailand where monkeys were in their natural habitat. Next destination: Although half Nigerian, Ashley O. has never been to Nigeria…It’s on the list to get there soon!
