Hi! I’m Patricia and I am a coordinator for Boomerang. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree from Appalachian State University. I currently live in Raleigh, NC, with my wife Chelsea and our bulldog Winifred, along with an array of other more exotic pets, including a tarantula, a rainbow stag beetle, and a whip scorpion. When I’m not coordinating, I am a musician in my spare time, predominantly playing bass guitar and composing, and I love going to concerts of any genre – but I do have a special love for heavy metal shows! I have also been known to enjoy watching extremely bad television shows, ranging from Gordon Ramsay reality cooking shows to poorly-acted science fiction procedurals.

Hi, my name is Val Hawes. After retiring from a large wholesale food distributor in Maryland where I worked for 25 years, I decided to relocate to beautiful Lake Wylie, SC. I came out of retirement to work for Boomerang Transport. Since I really like helping people in need, I think working as a driver for Boomerang really allows me to do just that. Both my children are married now, but I do have a newfoundland and golden retriever that I consider my “kids.”

Hi! My name is Marty Birch and I am a driver in Gainesville, Florida. I am originally from Kansas City and am a Chiefs football fan, like a lot of other people in the area. 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.
