“Take the challenge!”

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.
