Ali on the Run Show Episode 306: On the Job with Jenny Benjamin, Air Traffic Controller

“Your teacher says you can’t have a job where you’re looking out the window all day — well that’s exactly what I do!”

We’re closing out Season 3 of the On the Job series today with Jenny Benjamin — a woman with her eyes on the skies! Jenny is an air traffic controller at Denver Centennial Airport in Colorado, and on this episode, she talks about why she loves her job so much. She explains how she and her team safely and efficiently move air traffic, and talks about why it’s so important to be seamless behind the scenes. (Their goal, she says, is to stay out of the news!) She talks about the sacrifices she has to make as a mother who works long and oftentimes demanding hours, and explains how Ironman training fits into her schedule.
