Jillian has been running dogs her entire life. Her dad, Steve, competed in sprint races in the 80s, and her family operated a tour company for 14 years. Personally she has been competing in mid-distance races for 6 years.

Her mushing highlight has been raising puppies and working with them as they develop into mature members of the team. She especially loves running at night by the light of a full moon after a snowfall.

Taylor hopes to continue to build a mid-distance team, gain more experience, and compete in more races.
