Iesha Hawkins

Iesha Hawkins was named the February Member of the Month by the Women In Trucking Association. As a company driver for National Carriers, Inc. (NCI), Iesha hauls refrigerated freight. In July 2016, she was named the National Carriers Driver of the Month. She was the youngest female in the company’s nearly 50 year history to be awarded this honor.

“Iesha is a military veteran, a dedicated mother and an excellent professional driver. She is a great example of young professional women making a positive impact in our industry,” said Ed Kentner, Director of social media, NCI.

Iesha loves what she does, but admits that it can be a challenge to be away from family for so long at a time. Her advice to other drivers is, “Strive to be the best driver you can be. Don’t let anyone discourage you from doing your job.”
