“I feel so lucky to have this front-row view to how trucking moves our economy.”
MANAGING DIRECTOR, COMMUNICATIONS, FEDEX FREIGHT
WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT ROLE?
As the managing director of Communications and Culture for FedEx Freight, I oversee FedEx’s corporate communications, including internal and external communications, as well as the company’s Culture, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, and Citizenship efforts.
WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?
The people and their stories. Every day, I get to hear and learn so much about our drivers — the places they have been, the experiences they have, and the impacts they are making for our customers and communities. It is truly amazing work, and I am excited to be a part of telling those stories every day.
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO WOMEN LOOKING TO GET IN THE INDUSTRY?
Trucking, like any other industry, needs professionals of all types — HR, finance, marketing, etc. So, I encourage women to explore the opportunities that trucking has to offer and find their lane. I know some amazing, trail-blazing women in the industry who are paving the way from the cabs of our trucks to the executive offices of companies like FedEx Freight. Ten years ago, I would not have envisioned myself working in trucking, but today I’m serving in a leadership role that is helping to shape the culture of the organization.
