Author, Founder, and Chief Executive Officer of the Women In Trucking Association, Ellen Voie has developed an extraordinarily diverse background in the transportation industry. Recognizing the obstacles women face in choosing trucking as a career, Ellen Voie created the non-profit organization in 2007 with the goal of promoting the successful employment of women in the transportation industry.

Adding to her skills and understanding of the industry, Ellen Voie then worked as a dispatcher for a grain-hauling carrier. Co-owning and operating her own small fleet of trucks, Ellen Voie became well-versed in the myriad personal and professional issues related to the trucking industry.
