PROFESSIONAL TRUCK DRIVER, PRIME INC.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN THE INDUSTRY?
I have been in this industry for 27 years and have accumulated over 2 million accident-free miles, which is something I am very proud of.
WHAT ARE SOME ACHIEVEMENTS YOU ARE PROUD OF?
I was appointed to the American Trucking Associations’ 2019–20 America’s Road Team this year. I received Prime Inc.’s 2017 Highway Diamond of the Year award and was a Real Women in Trucking “Queen of the Road” finalist the same year. I’m also a member of Prime Inc.’s Driver Advisory Board and Highway Diamond’s program.
WHAT IMPACTFUL THINGS HAVE YOU DONE TO ENCOURAGE WOMEN IN THE INDUSTRY?
To help motivate women in the industry, I founded Trucking Divas Rock, an online community that shares the stories of women in trucking and encourages more women to join the industry. I also speak at schools about the career opportunities for women within the industry.
Previously, I was a member of Mothers against Drunk Driving (MADD) from 2004–2014. During my time at MADD, I held several leadership roles ranging from Secretary to President of the organization.
