Whitney McCleskyI’m so grateful for my job. Originally this job was a refuge. I had lost most of my confidence when I started this, but my work has aided me in my healing process and given me the means to reclaim my life. The work I do challenges and stretches me. I’m always learning and developing my skills. I’m pleased with my capabilities with this. It’s good to feel like I’m contributing something meaningful to society. I enjoy the traveling, going to cool places, and meeting interesting people. I also have the benefits of good pay, job security and a flexible schedule. I have a passion for the open road. I don’t intend to do this for the rest of my life, but this is a rewarding experience that has pushed me when I needed it the most. A woman doesn’t have to compromise her femininity to do this. I am glad I pursued this opportunity. With every mile and every tear I’ve discovered what I’m capable of and I have no regrets.
