I graduated from St. Catherine University in 2021 with my Master’s Degree in Social Work and work as a mental health therapist. I have over five years of experience working in mental health, and have worked at a residential treatment facility and the mental health units at a hospital. I have volunteered at the Beargrease in 2020 and 2021 and enjoyed being a Sawbilly at Sawbill checkpoint. Being outside with my dogs enables me to leave work at work and recharge my soul. My friends and family are a huge support in my life as well, and I’m very grateful to my friend Anna Carpenter and her family who taught me all I know about running dogs.

I wanted to spend more time camping and connecting with nature. Went to the 2018 Beargrease and introduced myself to Anna Carpenter, who lives a half-hour away from me. We became friends and I’m thankful to have been able to run dogs with her since 2018.
What a sled dog looks forward to most after a long day of racing is a nice bed of straw! But guess what happened at last year’s race? Someone stole all our straw right before the race start! Thankfully, great fans like you helped us out during the ﬁnal hour to provide this vital supply for our amazing dogs.
These dogs simply are the best – and we want to be able to continue treating them that way! Donations from fans like you make that possible. Would you ﬁnd it in your heart to help us out? No amount is too small in sled dog world!
