Fedex Custom Critical Fleet Owner
Donna Sleasman began her career in trucking while working at a gas station in 1982. She recognized early on that the transportation business was a way for women without a college education could earn a good living and became an owner and long haul trucker. Donna entered Expediting soon after her husband’s retirement in 1999, and as they say, the rest is history! She is now a successful Expediting fleet owner with an inspiring and interesting story to tell. You won’t want to miss it!
President/CEO Women in Trucking
Ellen Voie founded the Women In Trucking Association in March of 2007. The Women In Trucking Association was formed to promote the employment of women in the trucking industry, remove obstacles that might keep them from succeeding, and to celebrate the successes of its members. As an industry advocate and hands-on manager, Ellen attended Tri-C Truck Driver Academy in Cleveland, OH to earn her Class A Commercial Drivers License (CDL). In July 2012 she was honored by the White House as a Transportation Innovators Champion of Change. Ellen has had long and storied career involved with many aspects of the trucking business. She looks forward to sharing her knowledge and experience at The EGG.
