This is Jen’s second time on the Quest Trail with Dave.  She’s liven in Healy for 5 years and enjoys a small recreational dog team made up of retired Gang members!  Her “favorite days of the year are sledding along the outskirts of the Alaska Range and camping with her hubby.”

Kirsten, originally from Montana, lives in Healy where she works in construction AND massage therapy with an emphasis on the lymphatic system in humans AND cats and dogs.  Pretty neat.  This is her first time handling on the Yukon Quest.
