Biography

I have been a dog musher for about 33 years. I was introduced to dog mushing when I lived in northern Minnesota. Since then, dog mushing has been a very special part of my life. Along with my family and my work as a nurse practitioner, dog mushing remains one of my life passions. I think sled dogs, especially Alaskan huskies, are remarkable beings that give us so much pleasure and inspire us with their enthusiasm, affections, incredible athleticism and remarkable resilience. After retiring from Iditarod three times I have decided to run “one more time” because I love the dogs, love working with the dogs and because running across Alaska with my dogs fills my soul.
