Eight years ago my partner Fabian and I came to Canada to work as dog sled guides for a tour operator in BC. When we moved to Whitehorse the following spring, we started our own kennel (Fox Creek Kennel). We currently have 29 dogs including 8 pups and live and train near Fox Lake.

I guided for a dogsledding company for a few years before starting my own kennel 5 years ago. I now have 24 dogs, and 2 cats to keep them all in line.

Saint John, Newbrunswick Kennel: Crazy Dog Kennels, Delta junction, AK I discovered dogsledding 4 years ago while traveling across Canada. I made it up to Churchill, Manitoba- where I volunteered at a local kennel.  It was supposed to only be for 5 days, but ended up turning into an ongoing employment and wonderful friendship. Since then I have been (seasonally) driving for tours, helping train for the Hudson Bay quest, and handling for the quest.  This will be my first time racing. I have 3 passions in life- Dogsledding, travelling and new challenges , I feel very blessed as this race gives me the opportunity to combine the three!
