What attracted you to the courier business? 

I was first attracted to the courier business through a special invitation to become my own boss, work flexible hours and have unlimited earning potential.

Can you describe a typical work day? 

A typical work day is a new adventure each day! I start my day off with my morning mail routes and have to overcome monumental circumstances. As couriers, we race the clock to meet deadlines and are challenged by parking obstacles and speed enforcements. I strive to be the best courier I can be and uphold company standards among my WEX team members (aka bossing them around 😉). I work diligently to be an example of excellence for the Washington Express Brand, whose logo I wear proudly.

What has been most memorable for you as a WEX courier? 

The most memorable moment for me has been being a part of the WEX team as we dominate the courier industry. After 30 years, we’re still here! The industry has drastically changed since I began through the use of technology and electronics like the fax machine. I see a lot of familiar faces and love to see happy customers. When they walk in the office, if they’re smiling, I’m smiling.

How do you spend your time when you’re not working? 

I love to travel, go fishing and spend time with my husband and grandchildren. My 8th grandchild is due in May! About 7 years ago I took a 6-week vacation and traveled to Alaska, Canada, Jamaica, Nevada and West Virginia and got to fish in beautiful locations. It was an experience I’ll never forget. I also continue to take classes and recently graduated from the Greater Washington Area Urban Leagues Entrepreneur Program.

I’d like to thank the Washington Express FAMILY for a wonderful 35 years!

    Mrs. Bennett, congratulations on being recognized for 35 years of service. I was beginning to think longevity no longer had its rewards, but this article proved me wrong. Great to hear of your accomplishments beyond work and your travel adventures. Continued success to you!
