The Hazmat Lady
Chief Executive Officer
My earliest memory of falling in love with a Semi was as a 1st grader when my uncle, who was a trucker, drove my siblings and myself to school one morning in his truck. I thought, “this has to be the most amazing job, riding around with all that power under that driver’s seat.”
After working 9-5 jobs most of my early adult life, I began my trucking career in January of 2002. I never dreamed it would be THE job I would love for the rest of my life. What I did immediately realize is that the absolute power under that driver’s seat, could also be a deadly one.
As a professional driver, I told myself each day before getting behind that wheel, “DO NOT let this be the day I hurt anyone.” Safety was and has always been my greatest respect for the professional driver. We, the professional drivers, are responsible for the driving public because WE ARE THE PROFESSIONALS.
For family reasons, I left the OTR driving field and returned to an office job again for 12 years. I missed OTR driving so much and my heart ached to be back on the open road. I finally made it back in 2016.
When I returned the biggest difference I saw, almost immediately, was the demographics of drivers had changed dramatically. The diversity of language became an overwhelming concern. I personally witnessed many active drivers that could barely speak or even read the English language.
With this site I intend to help as many professional drivers as I can. This site will be multilingual to assist as many professional drivers as possible.
My mission is to promote public safety and environmental awareness by providing SAFETY and HAZMAT education for professional drivers.
