Lisa Kelly - The Hot Ice Road Trucker
Lisa Kelly is an ‘Ice Road Trucker’ featured on the History channel documentary-style reality television series Ice Road Truckers. Each week the documentary follows several truck drivers as they make their way along the icy Dalton Highway from Fairbanks to Deadhorse, frequently towing 'oversized' loads. Kelly was notable as the only female trucker featured in the series until Maya Sieber in Season 5. Originally from Michigan, she now resides in Wasilla, Alaska.
Lisa is a rambunctious tomboy truck driver and motocross-riding daredevil. She has crashed both trucks and motorcycles, but nothing has scared her off from running the Dalton. Lisa mastered the dangerous mountain roads of India, navigating a truck in a country where women aren't normally seen behind the wheel of any vehicle. In Alaska, she has to battle the big boys daily to keep her job and works hard to prove herself worthy of bigger and tougher loads. She's no rookie, but some drivers feel she's a lightweight and can't be trusted on the road.
Lisa was born on the 8th December 1980, in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Her family moved to a mini farm in Sterling, Alaska when she was six years old. She returned to Grand Rapids, Michigan for college, attending Cornerstone University for one semester before deciding it was not for her.
