Meet Quinton

army veteran and 2018 driving for excellence award winner

My Story.

Meet Werner Enterprises professional driver and United States Army veteran Quinton. Quinton joined Werner in early 2017, after attending United States Truck Driving School in Colorado.

“I became a driver because it gave me the opportunity to travel,” said Ward. “When I spent my time in the military, I did a lot of training and moving from place to place, and trucking gave me the ability to grow and to build.”

Werner is proud to say that military veterans and veteran spouses comprise approximately 20 percent of its workforce, and that was a main factor in Ward’s choice for his career.

“My favorite part of being a professional truck driver is that every single day is different, and that when I look out the window, my views are ever-changing.”

My co-pilot.

Being able to bring his furry co-pilot was one of the many reasons he chose Werner.

Werner’s fantastic pet policy allows one dog or cat on the truck for a $250 deposit. There are no breed or weight restrictions unless traveling into Canada, so Werner’s furry friends can enjoy the ride!

My service.

Quinton spent five years in the United States Army. While on active duty he was hurt, and medically retired in 2010. He went through the Vocational Rehabilitation Program through the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, which provided him the tools and resources to begin his career as a professional truck driver.

Meet izet

Owner operator, student trainer and bosnian immigrant

My Story.

Meet Werner Enterprises owner operator and student trainer Izet, also known as Easy. He began training in 2004, and recently achieved one million accident-free miles.

“Each day is different and that is what I love about my job,” said Izet. “It keeps me going and excited.”

Izet is from Bosnia and moved to America to pursue his dreams. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and their five children.

“I always wanted to drive a big truck, and to me America itself is a pretty amazing country coming from a little country far away, and I wanted to travel the country.”

My own boss.

Izet works on a dedicated account in Fulton, Missouri, and has been an owner operator since 2005.

“I feel like more than a truck driver, I feel like a businessman. At the same time, you can contribute and work alongside the greatest company.”

As an owner operator at Werner, you can take advantage of diverse account options to find the best fit based on the type of work, home time and location. Werner’s large customer base allows more driving opportunities to best fit the needs of you and your family.

Meet shannon

breast cancer survivor and
race for the cure driver

My Story.

Meet Werner Enterprises professional driver, ambassador and student trainer Shannon. She joined Werner in 2015 after leaving the medical profession where she worked in billing and coding. Shannon currently works on a dedicated account near her home in Florida with her dog, a Chihuahua mix named Lily.

“What I enjoy most about this job is the freedom,” said Shannon. “That and the scenery, you just have to take it all in.”

My co-pilot.

Meet Shannon’s co-pilot, a Chihuahua mix named Lily. Shannon and Lily walk around truck stops and play fetch when they have downtime. “Werner supports our drivers with a fantastic pet and passenger policy,” said Shannon.

My cause.

In 2018, Shannon was selected to drive one of Werner’s two Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure trucks. These pink and gray specially wrapped 2019 Freightliner Cascadia’s display the pink ribbon to raise awareness for breast cancer on our nation’s roadways. Shannon is a breast cancer survivor who has had a vital role in training female student drivers at Werner. Women comprise approximately 12% of Werner’s driver workforce, which is double the national average.

Meet cheyenne

army national guard member and operation freedom driver

My Story.

Meet Operation Freedom 13 driver Cheyenne! Cheyenne and her co-pilot, a Siberian husky named Apollo, drive Freedom 13, which honors service dogs with a special commemorative wrap. Cheyenne is a Roadmaster Drivers School graduate and an Army National Guard member. “The Operation Freedom fleet shows Werner’s commitment to military veterans and their families,” said Cheyenne. “I am proud to drive Operation Freedom 13. The military is a big part of my life and Werner makes it a big part of their company.”

My co-pilot.

Meet Cheyenne’s co-pilot, a Siberian husky named Apollo. “Life on the road can be challenging, but Werner offers the comforts of home, like letting me bring Apollo to travel the country with me. Werner has also created pet friendly areas for him to relax and exercise and they plan to add more dog run areas to all of their terminals.”

My service.

Cheyenne is an Army National Guard member who enlisted in 2014. “It quickly became my goal to drive a military-themed truck. I am proud to drive Operation Freedom 13 and honored to be chosen among the many veterans driving at Werner. With being in the Army National Guard and actively going to drill once a month, Werner is great about providing me an ample amount of time to get home and prepare for drill.”
