Jennifer Harrington grew up in Virginia in a family of mostly car enthusiasts. At a young age, her father purchased a 1967 Chrysler Newport, sparking his love for Mopars – and thus hers, too.
She also grew a fondness for auto racing, particularly drag racing, and attended various events such as Mopar Madness at Virginia Motorsports Park. She learned in high school that she wanted to pursue automotive journalism as a career.
Jennifer landed an internship at Automobile Quarterly before graduating college, which later turned into a full-time copy editor job. In 2012, she earned a BA in journalism from Indiana University Southeast, with a minor in mechanical engineering technology (thanks to courses at the local Purdue satellite campus). She now contributes and edits for Allpar.com.
Her daily driver is a 2002 Dodge Neon, and she does most of the work on it herself when desired or necessary.
Jennifer also participated in the 2012 BABE Rally on Team LouVinLoonies. She has also traveled to France for the 2011 24 Heures du Mans.
