I retired after 40 years in the automotive aftermarket parts industry. My wife and I moved to be closer to our daughter’s family which includes two grandsons, ages 9 and 12. I have been married to my wife, Candy for 43 years. She is a long time educator in English, and Journalism. She spent the last 18 years before retirement as an assistant principal at a large high school in Olathe, Kansas. Upon retiring and moving to Florida in 2019, I felt I needed to do something to fill my time. I wanted something part time, working from home, with a flexible schedule. Three months and I did not find anything I liked until Boomerang Transport came along. It is a luxury to be able to accept or decline a trip. Although, I accept as many as possible, just depending on my schedule. I started with Boomerang in October of 2019 and have enjoyed every minute of it. I am able to engage with most clients if they are interested in talking and fortunately, I can carry on a conversation with anyone on any number of mundane topics. Boomerang has been the perfect job for me. And it gets me out of the house for a couple of hours each week and my wife likes that.

I have a corporate background in Human Resources with over 10 years of experience specializing in the candidate experience through talent acquisition and onboarding. I enjoy working in Human Resources because I always had a passion for helping people and love variety. I also have a BIG heart for Entrepreneurship which is why I started my own business called Mommy Buggy which is a personal concierge service for moms. I joined Boomerang Transport in 2022 because as I mentioned before I love helping people but I also enjoy getting people to where they need to go in a timely manner. In my free time I am a business entrepreneurship systems nerd as I can get lost in information when it pertains to new business systems, softwares and also any type of Youtube videos talking about business/entrepreneurship/financial info.

Hi, my name is Diana Comer and I am a driver in Jacksonville, NC. I was raised in Vermont and went to college at Vermont Technical College where I received an Associate’s Degree as a Veterinarian Office Assistant; however, I did not work in that field as I went to live with my aunt and uncle right out of college. They were in the circus. They had elephants and knew many people with animals, so I got many hours of hands-on training that way. It was a fantastic life and enabled me to see much of this beautiful country of ours. As I got older, I decided I wanted to return to Vermont and work at a “regular” job. Well, I worked as a secretary for the state in the Probation and Parole office. That was good for a while but then as you suspected, I got itchy feet and needed some more adventure than what I was getting so I joined the United States Marine Corps. I really enjoyed that lifestyle. I stayed for 4 years and was honorably discharged as a Sergeant. I would have stayed in; however, that is where I met my present husband, and he was an officer and as an enlisted we were not able to date so I chose to get out when my time was up. I then chose to get an education in the health care field. I became a CNA, LPN and finally an RN. These degrees allowed me to work in any area of the country that my then husband was stationed at. We then came to Jacksonville, NC and decided that NC was where we wanted to retire one day. He had reached the rank of Lt. Colonial by now and so I was able to switch occupations again and pursue my passion and that was that of animals. I started working in a dog boarding, grooming, day camp facility and moved up to being a kennel manager. This is the present position I hold, and I absolutely love it. I work with all kinds of small animals but mostly dogs and cats. Nothing is better than working every day in an occupation you love. This is another reason I wish to join the Boomerang Team. I miss driving and I want to help people. With my military access I will be able to help Boomerang fill the need should any clients need services on the base. I also know that I will get great satisfaction from being a driver for Boomerang and I am so looking forward to belonging to your company and being part of the team.

Hello! My name is Shelba Best and I am a driver in Charlotte, North Carolina. I have been a nurse for over 28 years. My passion is to help folks from all walks of life by working in various settings.
