Truck Gal: A Revving Australian Icon
Publisher : Acashic Publishing
Description
Attractive and youthful looking, Kellie Andersen has been beset by unwelcome attention most of her life — resulting in her worst and scariest fears becoming realities.
When her mum was disfellowshipped from an extreme religious order, Kellie was just a kid who had a choice — be a devout member of the religious order or leave!
With nothing left to her name, she pursued the one thing she knew that would make her happy — driving trucks.
In order to enter a heavily male-dominated industry, she had to constantly battle her way through on an extremely high physical and mental scale that most would not have been able to bear.
Her strong-will and tenacity have even forced her to face an imminent threat on her life.
Now with a lifetime of adventures behind her, Kellie Andersen is more than the real deal. With uncompromising focus, she says, she’s doing it for women in the transport industry—and that is what’s kept her going!
