Meet one of our champion drivers, Christy Tolbert
If you’re taking a road trip, you want Christy Tolbert on your team. She is one our many outstanding, expert drivers at FedEx Express, with six years of accident-free professional driving under her belt. Her driving abilities recently earned her Rookie of the Year and Grand Champion honors at an internal competition, and earning a spot in the finals at the National Truck Driving Championships.
Christy’s skills also mean that of course she is a fantastic navigator, often using her skills of setting landmarks and reference points to help guide her family on camping and fishing trips to parks and recreational areas in Oklahoma.
She and her husband Terry are the parents of two children, Matthew and Trinity. The Tolbert family lives in Richland Hills, Texas.
We caught up with Christy and asked her a few fun questions about driving:
What was your very first car?
Red GMC S10
What is your dream car?
Black Ford F-250 (I just love being up off the ground, able to see everything!)
Favorite time of day to drive?
I love dusk, watching the sun set and the beautiful colors, but you can still see the road.
What’s changed most with road travel since you first started driving?
It seems as if lately there is construction everywhere – congestion, with diversions popping up often. You really have to keep yourself aware.
What change would you most like to see to the driving experience?
I’d like to see completion of all the construction! It would also be nice if everyone were a little more courteous and cooperative on the road. Everything works a whole lot better for everyone that way.
