Ketchkan, AK, USA

I grew up and have lived most of my life in Ketchikan, Alaska. I was the first person from Ketchikan to compete in and complete the Iditarod. This will be my second running of Iditarod. I completed the 2011 Iditarod in 13 days 1 hour 49 minutes and 24 seconds. I came in 43rd out of 63 mushers. I had the time of my life and I hope to take what I learned on my inaugural run and improve on my second run down the trail to Nome!! I have been teaching school for 10 years. Some of the community activities I am/have been involved in are: Master's Swimming, assistant-coaching for the Killer Whale Swim Team, sailing with the Yacht Club, and co-president of Delta Kappa Gamma, a teachers' society. My dream to run the Iditarod began forming during 2001, the year I was a dog-handler for a musher. In order to qualify to run the 2011 Iditarod, I needed to complete 500 miles in sanctioned sled-dog races. I completed my 500 qualifying miles on April 3rd, 2009. I am very excited to represent Ketchikan, my home and my community, for the second time in the Iditarod. Running For Breast Cancer Awareness This summer my mom was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer. She underwent a double mastectomy in June and she is going through chemotherapy for the next four months concluding her treatment with 6 weeks of radiation. This year I will be running for breast cancer awareness, all monies that are not used for my Iditarod 2013 run will be donated to a breast cancer charity of my mom’s choice!
