About Jonathan

I strive to develop a noteworthy program. I work to have drivers recognized as professionals in the industry and hope to have more people learn what a great career truck driving can offer. My goal is to improve highway safety one driver at a time. The best part of my job is hearing from the students the difference this career choice has made in their lives. Each day it is important for me to help students reach their fullest potential and support their interest in this career. There is a wide variety of students who participate in our program and the best part is seeing the same passion and excitement that I have for the industry, coming from them as well as seeing the amazing progress and growth that several students make during their 3 months of training.
