Pruitt, Michele crop1. Why did you get into trucking? I was in management for a local convenience store chain and I was sent to a store with diesel pumps. Truck drivers kept coming in telling me where they were headed and I thought that sounded so cool… To travel the country and get paid for it. I went to school and here I am still loving it!

2. If you could take one person on the road with you, who would it be, and why? Hmmm….it would have to be Channing Tatum, and why you ask… Have you ever seen Magic Mike? A girl can dream can’t she… Lol

3. What would you tell a young female who is considering a career in truck driving? I would definitely encourage a female of any age to give this industry a shot! There is a shortage of drivers which provides a lot of opportunity. It gives me a great feeling of accomplishment and independence!

4. What is your definition of a beautiful trucker? Personally, I believe that beauty comes from within! A great attitude goes a long way!

5. Why should you be chosen as the winner of Overdrive’s Most Beautiful? I am genuinely a happy person and I always have a smile on my face! I truly enjoy life and encourage others to do the same!
Think positive, avoid the negative and prosper…words to live by!

    This has nothing to do with the contest. She said,” I went to school for it”. When I got in the business it was ,” at least 1 year OTR,all weathe all roads experience”. The only people I can think who would train you then turn you loose was NAVL. Then again the only way that happened is if you bought a truck through their,”lease purchase program”. I spoke with one driver who had a friend that drove for North American. He said his friend knew a lot of guys that went that route. They did great for 4 or 5 months,the. NAVL started starving them out. Then in no time,truck was repoed. Sounds like North American was in the used truck business. Now I see trucks that beg for people to come to work for them.
    C R England ( remember when they were “C R England and Sons”. What happened with the “Sons” part) comes to mind. Back in the day they wouldn’t even talk to you without experience. I guess the schools are okay ,but there’s no substitute for the “real world”. The schools ain’t gonna teach you how to navigate some of the nasty mountain passes one might encounter. Monarch Pass comes to mind.. Why do you think they have runaway truck ramps strives to maintain an open forum for reader opinions. Click here to read our comment policy.
