“You’ll meet some of the best people you’ve ever met before.”

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, LOUISIANA MOTOR TRANSPORT ASSOCIATION

  • WHAT MADE YOU PURSUE A CAREER IN TRUCKING?

    I am the Executive Director of the Louisiana Motor Transport Association (LMTA). Following a career in policy and public affairs, which included jobs working for the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry and the National Federation of Independent Business, I joined the LMTA this past year in November 2020. I am a huge advocate for the business community and the trucking industry is important to our economy. [Everyone] is impacted by the trucking industry. I’m passionate about the impact we have on the economy and telling that story. I don’t think people truly realize how much trucking impacts their lives.

  • WHAT MAKES YOU PROUD OF THE TRUCKING INDUSTRY?

    I take great pride in my industry and the essential role that truck drivers play especially during a crisis when deliveries become even more difficult. During severe weather, such as hurricanes, which impact Louisiana frequently, it requires you to “put your problem-solving cap on” and figure out how to make deliveries when roads aren’t in the best conditions, and you may not have access to certain things.

  • WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR WOMEN LOOKING TO ENTER THE INDUSTRY?

    I encourage all women to join the industry. You’ll meet some of the best people you’ve ever met before. The women in the industry are some of the most tenacious, persistent, smart, and sophisticated women that I’ve ever met.
