EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, LAREDO MOTOR CARRIERS ASSOCIATION
WHAT MADE YOU PURSUE A CAREER IN TRUCKING?
I never planned to join the industry until a job in trucking fell in my lap. While job searching, I was asked to help coordinate for a young trucking association and I was up for the challenge. Now, I run the association and trucking has become one of my passions.
WHAT IS YOUR PROUDEST MOMENT?
I am especially proud of the continued growth The Laredo Motor Carriers Association is seeing. In just three and a half years, the Association has grown from 18 members to 234 members. Just this year, Laredo became the largest inland port in the nation.
WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR WOMEN LOOKING TO GET INTO THE INDUSTRY?
I would encourage other women who are considering joining the trucking industry to go for it! Take the challenge! There are opportunities for growth and for you to become a successful businesswoman in the trucking industry.
