“Give it 110%”

Professional Truck Driver, M.T.S.

  • WHAT MADE YOU PURSUE A CAREER IN TRUCKING?

    I first started driving in 1999 after coming across an ad for trucking in the Sunday paper.

  • WHAT DO YOU ENJOY ABOUT YOUR JOB?

    Having freedom on the open road, seeing different things, going different places, meeting new people, are just some of the reasons why I love trucking. I also enjoy being able to travel and get paid for it as part of my job.

  • WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR NEW DRIVERS?

    It’s a great career that can provide for. I recommend that after an individual and their family. I encourage new drivers to take the time to learn about the industry and what the day-to-day job of a truck driver looks like, then jump in wholeheartedly and give it 110 percent. Currently, there is a truck driver shortage and a particular need for more Black drivers, including Black female drivers. A lot of young Black people don’t know about the industry… there are trucking jobs all over that can provide a comfortable life for them.
