Who is Lisa Kelly?
She spent her first six years of life in Grand Rapids, but then moved to Sterling, Alaska with her parents. While there, she finished high school, and then returned to Michigan as she enrolled at Cornerstone University. Unfortunately, Lisa found that college was not for her, and decided to start looking for work.
Before She Became Famous IRT
Kelly found a job for herself as a school bus driver, while in her free time she was a motocross rider. She focused more on freestyle motocross, and soon became a champion. However, she then decided to pursue a more stable job, and opted out for a place in the trucking industry of America. She first had to obtain a license to drive a truck, but although unusual for a woman, that wasn’t a problem since Lisa had experience in riding or driving everything from a motorcycle to a bus. She was subsequently hired by the Carlisle Transportation, and in the beginning had to work twice as hard because she was a woman, to earn a name for herself.
Television Career and Rise to Prominence
After several years of work for the Alaskan trucking company, her work was awarded when she was chosen as part of the cast for the History channel reality series “Ice Road Truckers” in 2007. Thanks to her good work, Lisa’s contract lasted for ten years, which not only increased her net worth, but it also lead to her being featured in the spin-off show – “IRT: Deadliest Roads” (2010-2011). With her most recent appearances, Lisa became known around the world and an idol in Alaska to all females who wanted a place for themselves in the world. She has inspired numerous ladies to become truckers, and to pursue careers in the automotive industry. Lisa has also driven her truck outside the US, visiting Canada, Peru and Bolivia as well, among other countries, such as India.
