My name is Billie, and I have two little girls who keep me busy. I am a neurotrauma nurse In my spare time. Those things in addition to the sled dogs keep me busy! I have been running sled dogs since I was seven years old. We have about 20 dogs right now. I’ve run a lot of different races around Minnesota and Wisconsin.

I look forward to the Beargrease every year and look forward to seeing the volunteers and mushing friends on the trail!
