So this is how I started 4 years ago, just blogging about anything and everything…
Well, blogging mostly about health and trucking. Then my life took an unexpected turn onto the Alaskan Ice roads and my funny witty posts came to a halt in the way of becoming a “Celebrity” and acting “professional” in the spotlight. Not anymore! I miss the old me; the REAL me. I miss speaking my mind, sharing my beliefs and acting a little inappropriate at times. I mean that’s exactly why I was discovered in the first place.
For those of you that have no idea who I am, I was raised in Northern NJ and became a truck driver at the age of 23. I pulled a 53′ reefer trailer all around NY, NJ, PA and Long Island NY. When I started trucking 6 years ago I remember people looking at me like they saw a ghost. Up here in the Northeast, seeing a female truck driver was a rarity.
In my short time as a driver I noticed that the Trucking Industry has changed drastically as more and more women are being recognized for the job and getting behind the wheel. Trucking companies are hiring female drivers just as equally as the guys.
Over the years I did my thing and worked really hard. The hours were long and exhausting, especially since I lived an hour from work and I was a local driver. Because of the freedom, challenges and rewards of being a truck driver, I started a blog and just shared my daily routine.
Being into health and fitness I found interest in helping Truckers stay healthy and eat right and I acquired a big following. I would create meal plans and diets for Truckers on the run. From that, I was contacted by a producer of a reality TV show and that’s what brought me to Ice Road Truckers.
I was hesitant at first to appear on the show because I liked my peace and quiet, I liked my privacy, I liked doing my own thing and seeing what became of my life. My family said I was crazy for not taking the opportunity so I did.
After my 3 months in Alaska filming Season 5 of IRT, I stayed busy making appearances, attending truck shows and charities and going back to trucking full time in NJ. I’ve since then gotten Married and have had the most precious baby boy.
Life is finally back to normal and I am able to get back to what I started doing in the first place, helping people and just sharing my journey.
