Biography

Jan Steves, 60, was born and raised in Edmonds, Washington. In 2009, she moved to Alaska to run dogs and train for the Iditarod. A 1974 graduate of Edmonds High School, she attended the University of Washington. She is currently employed in musher property management. She began mushing in 2008 and says she became interested in the Iditarod “when I first spent time with sled dogs in 2007.” “I had a dream,” she says. Jan is the mother of three adult children, Nicole, Tyler, and Kelsey. She is a member of Willow Dog Mushers and Everett Mountaineers. She lists her hobbies as hiking, boating, fishing and skiing.
