During an interview with Trucker’s News in 2011, when asked what anyone stepping into the field should be aware of, Seiber had one piece of advice for new truckers — never quit. “Do not give up. Take your time. The beginning will be difficult. You’ll feel lonely, sometimes there will be a lot of setbacks,” Sieber said. “Move, reset, turn, maps, whatever, directions and see where you’re going. Just don’t give up. That’s my advice. “
Even for an experienced trucker like Seiber, it’s a dangerous business. According to Trucks.com, long-distance trucking in general is the seventh most dangerous occupation in America, behind jobs such as roofing and jobs in the fishing and wildlife industries. And the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that deaths are only increasing for those who drive trucks, with a total of 843 deaths in 2021. Even “Ice Road Truckers” itself saw a few on-screen accidents during filming.
Passion and determination have definitely shaped Sieber’s career. She said she’s always wanted to be a truck driver — ever since she was five and drove her dolls around in toy trucks, according to a 2013 AOL interview. She had only been a professional driver for a year when Ice Road Truckers called and made her a household name, allowing her to try her hand at modeling, among other things. Although she only appeared on the show for a single season, she definitely left a memorable on-screen legacy that will linger for many years to come.
