Occupation: Company driver
Company: FedEx Ground
I started driving just over three years ago. I came into the industry with very little knowledge of it and with the help of my boyfriend/co-driver and others in the industry I quickly discovered that this is what I’m supposed to be doing at this point in my life. I have learned so much and continue to become more knowledgeable every day I try to share my knowledge with other drivers and help them when at all possible. I am very thankful for all the opportunities I have been given and that I have gotten to enjoy the beauty of our great country.
I have a whole new respect for women whom have been in the industry since before women were “accepted.” Even now I tend to come across negativity towards women in the industry but I continue to hold my head up and keep rolling down the road because I know at the end of the day I made a difference in someone’s life even if they don’t realize it and that’s all that matters to me. I feel like all women in the industry should be considered the most beautiful because of the sacrifices we all make to be out here but for everything mentioned above I would love the opportunity to represent all women I’m the industry.
