I have a small kennel of Siberian Huskies based out of central Wisconsin.. I rescued my first Husky back in 2017 and was hooked. This is my 5th year running dogs and my 3rd year racing mid-distance. I look forward to every moment I get to share on and off the trail with these amazing animals.

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START RUNNING SLED DOGS AND HOW OLD WERE YOU WHEN YOU STARTED?

Growing up my family and I would watch sled dogs movies, inspiring me as a young kid to pursue running sled dogs someday. I started running them 5 years ago, at the age of 29.
