SAN MATEO, Calif. — Meryl Kelso wears many hats as the owner of Dash Limousine and Sedan Service in San Mateo. Those include reservations, dispatch and billing; marketing, hiring and training. Kelso even cleans and maintains her small fleet of Lincoln Town Car sedans and one Lincoln Navigator SUV.
But it's the driving that she loves. Kelso, 55, lives in San Mateo and has a son, 20, and a daughter, 18. She estimates that less than 5% of the owners and drivers in the limousine business are women.
“I think I was born with a steering wheel in my hands. As a young kid I could identify every car on the road, and couldn't wait to drive. . . ."
