Biography

Aaron Burmeister, 39, was born and raised in Nome, Alaska, and is married to Mandy. He graduated from the University of Alaska Fairbanks in 1998 and is a certified teacher. However, he is currently a general manager in the construction field. Aaron says, “I have been raising dogs and racing my entire life. (He is the son of Iditarod veteran Richard Burmeister.) Over the last 17 years our kennel and breeding program have been focused on building a winning Iditarod team. We are excited to be entered in the 2015 Iditarod after a great race in 2014 with young talented team that is now experienced and ready to take it up a notch. “We are very grateful for the many supporters that help get us to the starting line every year as well as the many volunteers who donate their time to put on this great event. Iditarod is the ultimate proving ground for our dogs, gear, and outdoor skills.” Aaron is a member of the IUOE Local 302, the IOFC, AOPA, and ITC. He lists his hobbies and interests as hunting, fishing, boating, flying, and enjoying Alaska with my family. Mandy and Aaron are the parents of Hunter, 6, and Kiana, 2.
