I am a solo female owner operator. I have been driving for 12 years now and 8 of that has been owner op. I worked my butt off as a company driver for 4 years paying off $60,000 in debt. I then purchased my truck from the company I was driving for. I wanted to work smarter not harder. That is what I have done as an owner operator. I paid my truck off in 14 months. Then I just started saving my money. I paid cash for my brand new F 150 in 2009 and also paid cash for my half of the house my fiance and myself purchased in 2011. It was always my dream to drive a truck ever since I was 4 years old. I have never wanted to do anything else. This is not a job to me, it’s a career, and a lifestyle. I love all aspects of what I do. When I am on the road I feel as though I am camping. I just absolutely love being on the road. I have wanted to become a positive light in the industry. It hurts me to hear people talking bad about it. I also hope I can inspire more women to realize they can do this job all by them selves. Thanks for considering me.
