Jenna Berger also joined the company right out of high school with no experience, learning on the job.

The Willamette High School graduate has been with the company for about three years. Now, she’s a dispatcher, handling coordination of the trucks and their loads. She also takes orders for gravel, works with construction foremen and operates the scales.

Berger said she got where she is now by just giving it a shot. She said other women interested in the field should look into it – it’s a job for anyone, not just men.

“We have a few women drivers here,” Berger said. “It’s nothing a woman can’t do. Yeah, it’s different. I’m one of the fewer, the minority around here, but it’s good. I like it."

Delta Sand and Gravel said there are many opportunities for women in the field.
