Biography

Denver Evens, 17, says she started musher in 2011 when she adopted a sled dog pet and wanted to see her “doing her job.” When she took this pup home, she started researching mushing and that first dog was the topic of an article she wrote and had published in Mushing magazine. A junior at Skagway High School, she participates in volleyball, student government and fundraising. She says her hobbies are drawing, gardening and writing. Once out of high school, she plans to go to school to become a vet tech and major in wildlife biology. “I am the only musher in my family and plan on running the Iditarod in the future.
