I was born into a trucking family, first riding with my Father, and then logging over 3 million miles in my own driving career covering 48 states. I love working for JLE, a company that promotes a safe and legal culture for drivers. That’s Winning!!

I started at JLE in 2015 attending their first trucking orientation. I am a certified Driver Trainer through NATMI and also a certified instructor in Smith Driver Training. I continue to instruct JLE’s new drivers to use the safest methods of load securement and proper, legal hours of service logging, using the latest PeopleNet computer systems.

The highlights of my 35 years of driving experience consist of team driving with my Father, hauling heavy off-road equipment and open deck freight, hauling general freight and produce, and my stint on a 100-ton rock truck building Toll Road 43. I also was an owner-operator for a period of time. I worked driving dump trucks, later water and tanker trucks in the Gas fields and I instructed and supervised CDL classes prior to JLE.

I pride myself on all the safe driving awards I have received over the years and the fact I have never submitted a cargo damage claim. I intend to continue to assist JLE Industries reach for the stars and become the premier open deck carrier in the nation! That’s Winning!!
