About: Donna Smith

Donna Smith is an active part of the advocacy for professional drivers. Although she has not driven a truck nor does she have a CDL license, her strong convictions destroys all notion of “you have to drive a truck to understand”…. and she IS the wife of a career truck driver. Donna believes justice can be achieved through passion, honesty and transparency, and that same belief and passion allows one to be an advocate for whatever the cause is they believe so strongly in. Donna holds a degree in Medical Technology and has been a part of industry research for many years. Her love for research led to a patent she received while working at General Foods Corporation, one of many research projects she was involved in. In 2001 Donna became involved with husband Allen’s advocacy for professional drivers and she combined her love for research with her belief in justice to aid with many of the movements that Allen and she became so passionate, active, and known for. Donna enjoys networking with others and believes that in order to achieve positive change, one must first be able to recognize and be accountable for their own actions and not be quick to point fingers at others, nor depend on others to carry the load. “Stand up for what you believe in, never give up”
