Featured this week in the Road Team Captain spotlight is professional driver Kathy Powell. Powell, who is from Jackson, Georgia, has been driving for Werner for nearly two years and has been a trainer for over a year. Powell was drawn to the trucking profession as her father was a truck driver and she spent a lot of the time during her youth riding with him. After managing a truck stop for almost 10 years, she decided it was time to get behind the wheel herself.
Powell is the proud mother of a 17-year-old son who is preparing to leave for Air Force boot camp. She also assists with taking care of her brother.
