I am a retired nurse practitioner and have been mushing for over 30 years. I got started running sled dogs when I lived in Grand Marais, MN. Initially, I focused on recreational mushing, but eventually started racing. My first race was the Seeley Lake 200 in 1991 in Montana. My passion for running dogs and racing grew. I ran a variety of races in Montana where I lived for 20 years and also ran races in MN. I entered the Iditarod 16 times, completing it 12 times. I am now in the twilight of my mushing career, but I still have some race worthy dogs and love running them so I will be on the trail again, but I will run the 8 dog race as I make my peace with aging.
