I still learn everyday and I’d like to be able to help the new drivers entering this great Industry. My father always said ” the day you think you know it all, is the day you need to hang up your keys ” My Love and Passion for the trucking industry made me realize that if I remained silent on issues important to me then I have no room to complain . I’ve 27 yrs in the Transportation Industry, the last 17 yrs in a Big Truck. I started in a school bus while my children were young. Then I drove a coach for a few years. Then I went into a straight truck driving Canada and the USA. Then I followed my dreams into a big truck. I drove solo for a couple of years and my husband decided to get his license and we’ve been driving team ever since. I’ve been employed by Sharp Transportation Systems Inc for the over 12 yrs.

We all share in the endeavor of making sure the trucking industry is well supplied with professional people, both women and men, who equally need an opportunity in making a better life for themselves and their families.
As competent professionals in all the different facets of the trucking industry, we must lend our support to help these women and men succeed.
Isn’t it time that we, as industry leaders, start working as one? Are we not all working towards the same common goal? Isn’t it time to fix our industry from the inside out?
By working together, sharing resources, ideas, knowledge and experience, we can accomplish great things! For those of us who have a great passion for the trucking industry, it isn’t about fame and fortune, it’s about seeing our industry continue to grow and flourish.
Each of us has a responsibility to help mentor and grow women and men into professionals within our industry. We need to get back to the basics. We need down to earth understanding and compassion for people’s needs. We need mutual respect. Safety needs to be a common goal.
Professionalism starts with us. We must have a balanced view of ourselves and correct any preconceived notion of our own superiority over others because of their gender, race, religion, education or economic realities.
I’ve seen firsthand the issues and problems that women and millennials still face today. This is unacceptable! The trucking industry will not thrive if this discord continues. Each of us has a responsibility as leaders to change this. We can either be part of the solution, or part of the problem.
The solution is simple ….. Lead by example!
