Klang and Fred, her 17-year-old cat, travel the country for CFI. The America’s Road Team Captain, who served a 2013-2014 term, has been trucking for 37 years. Her early days were spent driving team, but she’s been solo for nearly 30 years and 3 million miles with CFI.
She is known for her professional driving skills but also for her sense of humor and way of making people feel comfortable. “I’ve learned over the years that a lot of drivers look and act angry. I tell them, ‘Sweet pea, if you don’t like your life, change it.’ I say it with a laugh and usually, I can get them to lighten up,” Klang says.
