About Kellylynn

Before she got in the driver’s seat, Kellylynn received a degree in interior design, served in the Peace Corps, and was a professional trainer in passenger safety. It was as the director of logistics for her kids’ marching band that she discovered she loved everything about driving a truck and the problem solving it entailed. While she enjoyed getting a behind-the-scenes tour of how the country runs, she quickly realized life on the road as a female driver had its challenges, from getting basic necessities to the lack of respect. She became passionate about effecting change in the industry in a positive way for women and for men — for every driver, and sharing how trucking is an incredibly rewarding career and there is so much opportunity, especially for women.
