Episode Info:

Close your eyes and think, “tractor-trailer driver.”

Who do you picture? If you said, “a tough older guy,” you wouldn’t be off the mark. Truckers have a hard job which requires some resiliency. And 94% of them are men, with an average age of 55. As another point of trivia, most truck drivers are white.

None of these describe Q. Johnson. Except maybe the tough part.

In this episode, we hear Q’s story – about how a local program that uses federal funding to provide training for high-demand jobs allowed her to pursue her dream job – and her ups and downs since then.
