EP42: Winter Weather Wisdom with Sexcina Monroe

With 26 years of driving experience in her rear-view mirror, Sexcina has ample wisdom and knowledge to share. At the top of the list is her passion for safety. Her motto of “better safe than sorry” is born of having seen just about everything over the open roads – even having to navigate a concrete boulder barrelling down the highway toward her truck! Yet, having experienced a tragic loss in her family, her passion is fundamentally driven by her desire to protect and appreciate life. She speaks with incredible grace and depth about this topic and much more. We’re honored to have her with us on today’s episode of the #SixFigureTrucker.
