White Rose started driving a truck in 1990 with the better part of 3 years in Iraq as a civilian contractor truck driver. She has run through all lower 48 states and parts of Canada, Kuwait & Iraq in a big truck. She pulled van, reefer & flatbed in the States and reefer, flatbed and HET in Kuwait & Iraq.
She has been a member of the Patriot Guard Riders since June 2006, right after she came home from Iraq for the last time. In late 2010 she became the Help on the Homefront Coordinator (HOTH) for the Mississippi Patriot Guard Riders, but resigned that position when she started her pilot car business.
White Rose is also the author of the book, "Cindy in Iraq: A Civilian's Year in the War Zone" based on her emails she sent home to her family and personal journal entries while in the Sandbox. A movie based on this book is in the works and there is hope that filming on it will start in the next year or so. (http://cindyiniraq.com)
White Rose loves riding motorcycles and scuba diving. One of the things she loves about living on the Gulf coast is that the weather is nice enough that she can ride almost year round!! She has ridden her Harley in 39 states and crossed Canada from Ontario to Port Huron. In the summer of 2013, her Harley rolled over 100,000 miles.
White Rose is the co-founder of "Road Dogs on Hogs", a group of truck drivers that love to ride motorcycles. They were founded in early 2008. Their main focus is a yearly trip/ride to Sturgis for the rally.
Due to an on the job injury in the states in November 2008, White Rose could no longer be a truck driver, so she went to college at USM in Hattiesburg, MS. for a while. She worked on the campus radio station, WUSM. For 1 1/2 years she hosted 2 shows on the station; the noon show, Southern Miss Today, which was the only "live" show on the station at the time, and she created, produced and hosted a 2 hour show on Saturdays that featured trucking music called "Gear Jammin' Radio."
In the early summer of 2012, White Rose took a bike trip to the Ozark Mountains to do some riding. While there she met a group of truckers that had started a Motorcycle Association called 18Wheels. In the late summer of 2013, White Rose started the first chapter of 18Wheels MA in Mississippi.
The Motorcycle Association is now just one branch or a larger Truckers Association. The 18Wheels Truckers Accociation now also has an Auto Association.
Today White Rose is the owner/operator of "White Rose Pilot Car Service." She has been in business since July 2011 and though she really misses sitting up in that rig, she is loving it….no logbooks! (http://whiterosepilotcarservice.com)
