Exeland, WI

I have a kennel of 12 dogs in northwest Wisconsin. I’ve been mushing for the past 10 years, and racing the last four. I got into mushing after following the Iditarod for a homeschool project, and a year later got my first two dogs. This will be my first Beargrease and I’m looking forward to it. Other races I have run are Wolftrack, Northern Pines, and Apostle Islands. Other things I enjoy spending time doing are hunting, backpacking, snowmobiling, and playing music.
