I grew up in Manistee and skied for Manistee High School along with skiing in CUSSA for six years. I returned to Manistee in 1986 and have been coaching in the Manistee Ski Club/ NASA since. From the Development and Race Academy to the CUSSA group, I have coached in all areas of the club and have sat on the board of directors along with being president.
My two daughters went through the NASA program and skied on the Manistee High School ski team and in CUSSA. My daughter, Andrea, is currently skiing for the University of Michigan. I continue to league race and enjoy sharing the passion of ski racing to the athletes. I have been practicing dentistry in Manistee since 1986.
