Safety Officer

Hey, I am Jess

With the help of my parents, Vaughan and Jo and my brother Josh we run Winhaven Sled Dog Team which is currently made up of Alaskan Huskies, Eurohounds and Siberian Huskies. I started out in the sport when I was just 2 years old racing malamutes all throughout peewees, juniors and my first couple of years in open classes. I have run in most classes from 1 dog through to 8 dog on dryland and snow with a range of different breeds. I have a love for Alaskan Huskies and as a result I have started breeding my own alaskans who I hope to continue racing with in the larger classes

This is my first year on NVSDC Committee, my aim is to give back to the sport that has given so much to me. I have been a member of the club since it first started and have been attending the classic race over 15 years. The classic for me is one of the highlights in the ASSA national calendar and I am very excited to be helping run the event. I consider myself to be a very friendly and approachable person so don’t be afraid to come and say hi at races
