Biography

“I grew up in Willow, AK, surrounded by dogs and loving winter,” says 27 year old Lisbet Norris. “After high school, I moved to Fairbanks to attend university. At UAF, I cultivated a love for the North. I studied in Norway and Baffin Island and worked as a musher and expedition guide. I received my BA in Northern Studies and History from UAF in 2011 and decided then to pursue a long-held dream: distance mushing. I returned to Northern Norway that summer and spent the fall and winter of ’11-’12 training and racing dogs in the Alta area. I came back to Alaska convinced of two things: 1) Alaska was home and 2) dog life was the life for me. I love all aspects distance mushing offers: time in nature and time with dogs. In 2014, I completed my rookie Iditarod with a ream of Siberian Huskies from the family kennel: Alaskan Kennels, the oldest Siberian husky kennel in the world. I am excited to again field a team of AKC registered Siberian Huskies in the 2015 Iditarod. Thanks & love to my many friends and supporters.” Lisbet is a member of the Aurora Dog Mushers Club.
