" 'This really is a white male industry,' Maze said. 'But what I’m seeing is they’ve paved the way for me to succeed. No one is blocking me.'
Maze immediately immersed herself in Kansas City’s entrepreneur community, taking full advantage of all the resources available. She connected with a mentor from SCORE. She tapped services at KCSourceLink and the University of Missouri-Kansas City. She talked to owners of trucking companies...
Maze said she loves that she’s opening doors for other women to enter the industry. She wants to be an example, showing that if she can succeed in the freight industry, other women can, too."

For half of her almost decade long career there, she led the sales team and still holds the record for highest full truckload freight sales. Her resiliency and keen ability to connect with and solve the problems of her customers continues to contribute to her success. Jy earned her B.A. in Business from National American University. She is also a current member of Heartland Black Chamber of Commerce and a volunteer for The Women’s Business Center (WBC).
