How long have you been at Jetco?
3 years and 9 months

What do you like most about your job?
Every day I learn something new about our industry. Jetco encourages and supports me in continuing my industry education so that I can be successful in my career.  

What does D2P mean to you?
To me, D2P means security! I honestly feel comfortable knowing that all our employees are making the right and safe decisions every day, that allow not only me, but them as well to make it home each night to their families. And, family is what it’s all about!

What is your role when it comes to handling Hazmat?
My role is to be familiar with the regulations because it’s my job to answer any questions that our drivers, office staff or customers may have when it comes to Hazmat―from which Hazmat classes Jetco hauls, to proper shipping orders on the shipping documentation received from a customer or shipper.

I train Jetco’s Tiger Team, a group of office team members that pre-audit all shipping paperwork before our driver departs a location. I also complete internal audits once a week on all Hazmat paperwork to ensure Jetco is in compliance.

If someone were to play you in a movie, who would it be?
Taraji P. Henson – she takes every role seriously, especially motherhood!
