From there, she worked for St. Francis Hospital as payroll personnel and became a broker agent at Midnite Express in 1996, where she remained until 2008.

Since 2008, Ms. Whitney has been the president, owner and chief executive officer of SMJ Freight Solutions LLC. As a testament to her success, Ms. Whitney was named Woman of the Year by the National Association of Professional Women from 2010 to 2011.
