Professional Truck Driver, Walmart Transportation
April Coolidge, a former real estate broker, is a professional truck driver for Walmart Transportation. Throughout her six-year trucking career, April has accumulated more than 650,000 accident-free miles and has received many safe driving awards.
After the economic collapse in 2008, when the real estate market declined, April joined the trucking industry. April’s father was a truck driver, which is what sparked her interest in joining the industry. In an interview with Transport Topics, April was quoted saying, “I can’t find words to describe how it makes me feel, but I am proud to be a woman in this industry and to be as successful as I have been.”
Earlier this year April was appointed to the American Trucking Associations’ 2019–20 America’s Road Team. April is a member of the Arkansas Road Team and was named the USA Truck driver of the month by her previous employer in January of 2018. April has finished 2nd place for the past two years at her company truck driving championship. April also placed 12th at the Arkansas Truck Driving Championship in 2018.
