ASSISTANT VICE PRESIDENT, REFRIGERATED TRANSPORT, INC.
WHAT MADE YOU PURSUE A CAREER IN TRUCKING?
Trucking chose me. I’m proud to be a third-generation member of the trucking industry at my family’s business.
WHAT IS ONE OF YOUR PROUDEST MOMENTS IN YOUR CAREER?
One of my proudest moments in my career was getting to participate in the Texas Trucking Association’s Call on Washington. I recently traveled to Washington, D.C. for the program and spoke with my state’s representatives about the issues facing the industry. I was honored to represent not only our company, but our state and industry. Being able to have a voice and opinion on what will keep our industry going is something that I take great pride in.
WHAT DO YOU ENJOY ABOUT WORKING IN THE TRUCKING INDUSTRY?
Now working in the industry, Khrista sees first-hand the important role that trucks play in Farm-to-Table operations. I’m proud of the work of my company and industry. Working for a refrigerated trucking company, and seeing food come in everyday, has put the “to” in Farm-to-Table into perspective. As cheesy as it sounds, I love being able to go to the grocery store and find the products that I know have been on our trucks.
