Being outdoors in Michigan has been a passion of mine. I enjoy canoeing and racing canoes competitively. I have competed in races throughout Michigan, New York and Canada. During my canoeing years, I have been a member of the United States Canoe Association Board of Directors and currently serve as president of the Michigan Canoe Racing Association. After completing 40 years as an elementary school teacher, I retired to pursue my passion for sled dogs. I was able to train and race throughout the winter season. In 2017 I enjoyed completing the Yukon Quest 300. I enjoy training and running my 11 Alaskan huskies.

Yukon Quest 300, CopperDog150 and Midnight Run- Marquette
