Driver Spotlight: Darlene Arbolante

Darlene always had a passion for the transportation industry and always saw herself driving a truck one day. But being a mother to three boys, she was not able to pursue this new challenge until her boys were grown up. When the opportunity presented itself, Darlene was ready to tackle it head-on.

There was no doubt in my mind that I would become an Independent Contractor!

“After much research, I knew that Stevens was the company for me. I not only received my CDL from Careers World Wide in Keenesburg, CO, but I also received a pamphlet that explained the opportunities that the Contractor Division offered. After reading it over, there was no doubt in my mind that I would become an Independent Contractor!”

Darlene also took advantage of other opportunities presented to drivers at Stevens, including becoming a trainer to help teach other females to be the best driver they could be! “Being a trainer to me is being a small part of my trainee’s success. Being able to see them on the road solo alongside me is one of the greatest feelings one could experience!”

As for Darlene’s future in the transportation industry, she sees herself owning her own fleet of trucks and still inspiring the next generation of drivers. “I do not like sitting; I love being on the go and constantly moving. I have found a profession that I truly enjoy and will not stop until all of my goals are complete!”
