Treasurer

I started mushing with an Alaskan Malamute in 2001 and have been involved in the sled dog racing every year, dragging my family around forests and ski slopes. For 15 years I raced malamutes from 1 dog all the way up to 8 dog who are now all gracefully retiring. My family made the switch to cross bred hounds and Alaskan Huskies about 4 years ago. We have been building our kennel up and as a result currently have 13 young purpose bred sled dogs ranging from 1 years to 4 years old.

I’m passionate about giving back to the sled dog community, I am the President of the Falls Creek Sled Dog Classic and have an interest in helping new people into the sport. After watching my kids grow up learning how to run teams, I am also invested in helping Juniors gain confidence and make the step into open classes. Feel free to say hi when you see me around
