Staff Shoutout: Sherry Paarman

Paarman Resized“Sherry Paarman has been absolutely fantastic to work with. From the initial recruiting of drivers to the final conversion to our payroll she has always given great and transparent support. You are fortunate to have her on your team!”

– Centerline Customer

A lifetime trend for Sherry Paarman is maintaining a busy and fulfilling schedule. Sherry goes for the gold: from working full-time at Centerline meeting revenue goals to supporting her daughter, Cammeo, in continuing to win numerous sporting medals and excelling in academics (she has a 4.3 GPA and close to a full-ride scholarship to university).

Sherry has shown her dedication to her career and family for years. When Cammeo was first born, Sherry decided it made more sense for their family if she worked part time and stayed at home part time. With the support of her husband, they made it work. She returned to work at FedEx where they created a position for her. This is where she learned the ins and outs of DOT, the DOT lingo, and how to put together a DOT file. Several years later, Sherry transitioned to the HR department and worked in recruiting in Lawrence. When Sherry decided to move to full-time work, she secured a place at ProDrivers where she ran the ship. Sherry’s hard work and commitment continued to accelerate her career and ultimately lead her to Centerline as Recruiting Manager.

Sherry has been an active and valued member of the Centerline family for the past six years. She maintains a busy agenda from placing people into impactful jobs, connecting customers with great drivers, and consistently communicating with drivers and customers to maintain a strong relationship that she knows is vital in the industry. Sherry explained that the numbers are what keep her motivated, she loves seeing the team meet their revenue goals.

When she isn’t offering excellent service at work, Sherry enjoys spending time watching the KC Royals. She admires their ability to work strongly as a team: they’re there for each other whether they win or lose, and work harder than any other team she follows. She explained the goosebumps she had when witnessing the reaction the team gave when their pitcher, Yordano Ventura, passed away earlier this year in a vehicle accident. The way the team picked each other up along with Ventura’s family really moved her.

One can easily sense how devoted Sherry is to the people in her life. Whether the crew at Centerline or her family, she finds immense satisfaction in seeing the people around her flourish, which we can’t deny has to do with her positive and motivational method of leading.
