I have been involved in health care for 40 years and lived in Alaska for 16 years starting clinics in rural bush villages along the Yukon River and Bering Sea coast. I ran the Iditarod in 1980, 82, 84 and 2006. I have hiked extensively in Alaska and other wilderness areas. I graduated from the University of Alaska in Fairbanks, and went to Medical School at the University of Washington in Seattle. I have lived and worked in Tomahawk for the past 20yrs. I enjoying telling stories about the Iditarod in the context of how this event transcends time and space and translates into other areas of our life. Life being a journey.
