EP21: Riding with the Road Runner, Deanna Kearney

Before she was driving trucks, our guest today was driving the lane with basketball in hand as an All-Star counterpart to NBA Legend Alonzo Mourning. “Zo” was the star of the boy’s team, while Deanna Kearney was the star of the girl’s team of Indian River High School in Chesapeake, VA. Her basketball skills gained her a full-ride scholarship and a full complement of character and insight that have translated into success off the court. Deanna’s leadership ability, work ethic, positive attitude, and team spirit have made her an excellent driver and a whole lot of money. Don’t miss the great conversation we have with the “Road Runner,” Deanna Kearney, on this episode of #SixFigureTrucker
