About the Author
Roxanne "Rock" Shunk is a business woman from Las Vegas who has learned how to overcome many obstacles in a man’s dominated world of trucking. Her story will take you on a wild ride of ups and downs, twists and turns, and everything it took to beat the odds.
“Rock” has succeeded despite many looming obstacles in her life over several decades, starting with a less than ideal childhood which caused her to grow up faster than most people have to. Rock’s story centers on how she has survived over the decades in the trucking industry and how she has actually thrived as she grew from a disadvantaged girl from Vegas, to raising a family on a farm in Florida, and ultimately to her God-given mission in northeast Georgia.
Her life’s work has culminated in, of all places, her dining room table-as she has assumed the role of mentor, teacher, pastor, and businesswoman, dealing with the largest trucking companies in the country. "Author" is just one of the many hats Rock wears. She is also a mother, grandmother, speaker, and minister to many, as well as a leader in the trucking industry. She has decades of experience in instructing drivers, dispatchers, brokers, and agents. She is the founding Pastor-Teacher of Unity on a Mission, which serves people from many walks of life, including orphans, widows, single mothers, and former addicts. She is also involved in the digging of wells for people with no water as she sends hope and help to people all over the world.
