“I want to be a resource for [other drivers and leaders].”
Regional Vice President of Sales, U.S. Xpress, Inc.
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO WORK FOR U.S. XPRESS?
When I heard that U.S. Xpress was not only a trucking company but a digital and tech organization, as a millennial, that mattered to me. My favorite part of the trucking industry is all the moving parts. I am a communicator and I enjoy cross department collaboration. I love knowing that we all have the common goal of bringing a positive impact on so many people.
WHAT OTHER WAYS ARE YOU INVOLVED IN THE INDUSTRY?
I am a member of the Diversity and Inclusion Council at U.S. Xpress, Inc. where I am able to work with a group of individuals to bring positive change to our company and the industry. I am very dedicated to changing the narrative within the HBCU community and I do that by speaking to classes that enlighten students about the career opportunities the trucking industry has to offer them.
WHAT IS YOUR GOAL IN THE INDUSTRY?
It’s my mission to work hard and bring an awareness of inclusion in leadership among the trucking industry. I want to be an inspiration to other leaders and aspiring leaders. I want to be a resource for people. I’ve had many drivers call me to let me know they appreciate my presence and leadership, it made them feel like they have a voice.
