He graduated from Michigan State University in 1989 with a degree in Veterinary Medicine and has served as a veterinarian on the Iditarod Race. He says he moved to Marquette to start his veterinary practice because it was “north.” He began mushing in 1993 and has run a number of races, including Le Grande Odyssée, Wyoming Stage Stop Race as well as the Iditarod. He will be running a team from Mitch Seavey’s kennel in this year’s Iditarod. Tim is a member of the AVMA, the AKVMA, the MIVMA and the ISDVMA.
