Profile Description


Each summer I head north to Interior Alaska where I get to live with, and help care for, 60 sled dogs at one of the most successful professional sled dog racing kennels in Alaska.

Along with living the dream, I also research the leadership and teamwork principles that contribute to the success of the team.

When I’m home in New Zealand I combine my professional experience with my learnings about sled dogs to bring you a unique take on leadership, teamwork and life.

Moira has worked in team leadership, management and advisory positions for a government department in Wellington, Lower Hutt and New Plymouth for 11 years. Prior to that she worked in industrial chemistry and process engineering positions mainly in the petrochemical industry in Taranaki.

Spicy is an Alaskan Husky from Two Rivers, Alaska. She has competed in the 1000 mile Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race six times along with a multitude of other mid-distance races in Alaska. She now lives with Moira in Inglewood, enjoys running around Karo Park next door, and sleeps on the couch.
