I am the ‘Mel’ in MonMel and in the picture you can see my husband Monte ‘Mon’. Although he does not work with us at MonMel Logistics he is a huge support to me & has supported my career in logistics, which is not always easy. Also pictured is my son Nicholas & his girlfriend Sydney who are both currently attending OSU. I started in January 2010 as a freight broker specializing in temperature-controlled loads. I fell in love with logistics from the beginning. After working as an employee for Manning’s Truck Brokerage in Omaha, NE for almost 4 years I became an agent for Robert Heath Logistics. When Robert Heath was sold in August of 2020, I decided I wanted to control the way my carriers were paid & make sure they were paid in a timely fashion, so I decided to start my own brokerage & here we are! I was tired of being at the mercy of other people while trying to run my own company and if the buck stops with me then I might as well own the company. I take our customer & carrier relationships very seriously as those carriers that haul for me on a regular basis can tell you I put my blood, sweat & tears into my work. For my work life balance my husband & I raise Registered Texas Longhorns on our ranch in Southern Oklahoma.
With twenty years of transportation and logistics experience in truck and rail, I fit well within many areas of the industry. Several years of my knowledge and experience come from working under Melissia at a previous company and look forward to assisting in the success of MonMel’s venture as well. Building and maintaining solid customer/carrier relationships by providing fair rates and exceptional service are of top priority for me.
In my spare time, I tune in to my creative side by drawing, taking pictures, and enjoying the outdoors. My family is big on sports, movies, and enjoy traveling. On occasion, I also love to kick back on the porch with a good; cold glass of Crown Royale.
