Who inspired you to become a truck driver?
Myself! I love nature and freedom. Luckily I can do this on road with my truck 'Bella'.
What does it mean to you to be a Dometic ambassador?
For me it's a wonderful to be a part of the team. I think your products are of great help to truck drivers for their all-round safety and comfort.
What Dometic gear is the most exciting for you?
The turning assistant 'Dometic PerfectView BVS 71000' so I can drive even safer in cities.
How do you prepare for a work trip?
I don't prepare much at all. I do it very quickly and according to my mood. I usually forget a few things but that's me! My must-haves are my toothbrush, money and when I can - my husband!
What is the best thing about your job?
To help other people and put a smile on their faces.
What is your greatest goal in life?
To be healthy and have my family by my side.
What is your go-to song or artist when on the road?
I listen to all music. It just depends on my mood and how I feel.
What is your favorite meal when out driving?
I like to eat fresh fruit when out traveling and working, and what is available in the different regions I am in. I like to try the local cuisine.
Do you have any advice for someone looking to follow the same path?
My motto is 'the route is the goal'. For someone looking to do what I do, I say live your dreams and don't wait.
