I began mushing as a teenager, because I was allowed to have dogs but my parents said no to horses. We laugh about it now, because horses would’ve probably been cheaper. The dogs have taken me on many adventures, including handling in AK for Aaron Burmeister, handling for Jessie Royer, doing tours in MT and working on the glacier in Juneau doing summer tours. I’m excited to see some new trails by competing at the Beargrease! My favorite trail snack is cheesecake, my dogs prefer tripe. In my spare time I like to do half marathons and enjoying the great outdoors with my pet collies.
