“When it comes to safety, I’m always trying to improve.”

Professional Truck Driver, J&M Tank Lines Inc.

  • HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED IN THE TRUCKING INDUSTRY?

    I always had a passion for trucks when I was younger. A friend of mine encouraged me to get my license when I was working as a sanitation worker. Throughout my career, I’ve tried other jobs to give myself options, but it was always the trucks. I gravitated to them.

  • HOW IMPORTANT IS SAFETY TO YOU?

    As a tank truck driver, you have to be safe while you’re driving and on the job. When it comes to safety, I’m always trying to improve. As a safety trainer at my company, I like to teach by giving the drivers scenarios based on real experiences that have happened to me or someone I know.

  • WHAT IS YOUR ADVICE FOR ASPIRING DRIVERS?

    Trucking is a great career. There’s a lot of opportunities in the industry now – a lot of great career opportunities. I encourage people considering a career in trucking to come on in and be a part of the trucking industry. It’s bigger and greater than what you can even image.
