Biography

Dr. Joe Carson, 60, is the President and CEO of DrCarsons.com and a 4th generation Alaskan. Joe has always been interested in the health and well being of animals and dogs which inspired him to develop all natural health food supplements and products for many species of animals including sled dogs. Having been born and raised in Alaska, Joe has been experiencing all the out-of-doors Alaska and the world can offer for many decades. White water rafting, hang gliding, ocean kayaking, hiking, hunting, commercial fishing and much more has led to his natural love of sled dog racing. “There is nothing like being on the back of a dog sled traveling through the beautiful snow covered back country with some great friends and companions – the sled dogs.” Joe is married to Holly and they are parents of three adult children, Heather, Joe and Lilly. Joe is the Vice President of Salt Lake Bible College and the Director of Northland Baptist Ministry. His hobbies are animal health and nutrition and honey bees.
