My husband, Ryan, and I have fallen in love with mushing and spend most of our days with the dogs either in the yard or out in the woods. In May of 2023 we moved to the central UP placing ourselves in the perfect spot for training. I own a grant writing firm contracting with nonprofits in their mission to make the world a better place. Outside of work and training my own team, I have a passion for bringing mushing to new people and coaching juniors into the sport.

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

I fell in love with sled dogs watching Iron Will as a kid, worked with all our pets, but did not start seriously pursuing mushing until 2020 age 34.
