A Woman Trucker’s Perspective

My name is Shaun. I have been driving as a team for 5 ½ years now, and I love every minute of it. I am a woman that has worked in male dominated professions since I was 18 years old. I started out in logging then moved to factory work and finally, the trucking industry. From my personal experience I would say that trucking has been the best as far as support and acceptance. C.R. England has given me every opportunity to be successful and I have really flourished in the industry.

From their school in Burns Harbor, IN to their corporate offices in Salt Lake City, UT everyone has done whatever they could to help me learn and grow to be the professional I am today. I cannot think of anything else I would rather be doing. Even out on the road the other drivers have always been helpful and courteous and I have made some wonderful friendships out here. I travel all 48 continental U.S. States and love it.

I wish we had more women drivers on the road, I think they would love this career just as much as I do. The support is there for them to be a success. Even my mom has taken the chance and she is now two years into her trucking career and is loving every minute of it.

I can’t speak for all companies, however I can say that C.R. England has and gives you what you need to succeed. From continuous training, to excellent equipment and a great support staff in their corporate offices, I am happier than I have been at any other job. I make excellent pay and have flexible home time and a company that works with me to be both successful and happy in my personal life. They go above and beyond to help me take care of any business that I need personal and professional. I am a mother of two and a grandmother of four, and I say, “Come on ladies, let the mother truckers roll! Silly boys, trucks are for girls!”
