2019 Bennett Woman Driver of Excellence Award Recipient
Kara Leppert grew up in Ohio and started driving in her early 20’s. After getting married, she and her husband ran as a team. The husband and wife team for the last 10 years have driven separately for an Owner-Operator.
One of her biggest challenges on the road was when she was unloading and moving around her trailer. She was hit in the knees three separate times by a car bumping into her and knocking her down. Kara believes to stay safe on the road, drivers should keep a safe distance, watch their speed and pay attention to what they are doing and to other drivers.
Kara’s core value is being organized and keeping her truck clean. She feels it is a good way to represent herself and the company. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her three-year-old son.
Kara always steps up to make sure deliveries are made on time, keeps a positive attitude and follows Bennett’s core values at all times. She is a great asset to the BOSS team as our Woman of Excellence.
