Meet HopSkipDrive CareDriver Sharra Kliebenstein

HopSkipDrive CareDriver Sharra KliebensteinWhat started off as a way to earn some extra cash quickly turned into something much more for Sharra Kliebenstein, who discovered that being a HopSkipDrive CareDriver holds a much deeper meaning. She loves the experience so much, in fact, that she has already completed almost 350 rides since being activated as a CareDriver just a few months ago.


Where do you live, and what market do you drive in?

I live in Oceanside, California, and I drive in the San Diego market.

What made you decide to become a HopSkipDrive CareDriver?

My initial interest in HopSkipDrive was to earn extra cash making my own hours. I see it much differently now!

What makes you a good fit for the work you do as a CareDriver?

I’ve always been told I have a gift for gab (in a good way). I love hearing stories Riders have to share and, from time to time, being able to share my perspective or give a little advice. Many of these Riders are so intelligent!

What would you say are the most important things you gain from being a HopSkipDrive CareDriver?

Patience, friendship and listening skills.

Have you learned anything surprising from your Riders? 

I’ve learned that the age of a child does not define their intelligence.

What advice would you give to someone who is thinking about becoming a HopSkipDrive CareDriver? 

To realize the gift of a child’s heart. Be patient with them, and never judge them. HopSkipDrive is definitely for individuals who take joy in driving and who appreciate children.

How important do you think HopSkipDrive’s mission (to create opportunity for all through mobility) is, and why?

HopSkipDrive’s mission is extremely important, especially for children with special needs. 

What do you like most about being a  CareDriver?

After being a HopSkipDrive CareDriver on a daily basis, I find this opportunity to be extremely rewarding in so many ways. I have the opportunity to meet new children who have different personalities, needs and circumstances in life. 

I honestly feel aligned in this work because of my love and admiration for children. Not only do I feel I am making an imprint on their lives, but they absolutely are making an imprint on mine. 

Thank you, HopSkipDrive, for this experience!
