Biography

Michelle Phillips, 45, was born and raised in Whitehorse, YT. Growing up she was a competitive figure skater. As a young adult, she traveled the world until she decided to stay in the Yukon. Michelle Phillips and her partner Ed Hopkins own and operate Tagish Lake Kennel. Michelle has run six Yukon Quest races (best finish 4th and Vet’s Choice award in 2009). After running the Quest, she decided to try the Iditarod. For the past 13 years, when not racing professionally, Ed and Michelle, with their son Keegan, 14, (and up to 90 Alaskan huskies) have provided visitors with sled dog adventures of 30 minutes to 7-days throughout the year.
