for a living.”
is no stranger to the trucking industry. Her grandfather hauled logs with a
team of horses. Her Dad worked as a truck driver and a snow plow driver.
Her aunt, mother, and grandmother all worked as either cooks or waitresses
in truck stops. So, it is no surprise that she also was a waitress in a
truck stop before starting her own trucking career.
she was waitressing, she met a driver that eventually became her boyfriend.
He began training her to drive a truck. He had a stroke and couldn’t finish
training her, so she attended a truck driving school and received her
license in 2007. Once he was cleared to return to work they ran team for
about five years.
things didn’t work out between the two of them, she wasn’t even close to
giving up trucking, so she went out on her own. After getting her feet wet
with another company, she joined the team at Bison Transport. She has been
with the company now for six years. “My experience level grew and so did my
career with Bison. I have over 675,000 safe
miles and have been a member of Driver Advisory Board for over two years,”

to the path God has laid out for me in my career. It has been an awesome
journey so far.”
