As is true for many Alaskans the outdoors has figured largely into her life.She has many interests including dog mushing, hiking, fishing, outdoor activities, and helping people solve problems. Her interest in animals led to her having dogs and later to running in the Iditarod. She has been used to handling huskies ever since she was small.
One way that Beverly felt that she could help the people from her region was by serving in the State Legislature. She ran for the House of Representatives and won on her first try. She is a representative for District 28 of Alaska.
While she was from participating in races she occupied herself with breeding huskies and visiting schools in remote areas. During the Iditarod she tried to be a special encouragement to native young people and encourage them not to use drugs. She is a source of inspiration for those young people of her tribe who have lost their way and are searching for their identity.
Since she was elected to the Legislature she has not had the time to devote to racing but she continues to be devoted to helping people and being a leader and role model to Alaskan young people.
She has had many business & Professional Positions including:
She also has many political and Government positions:
She has a son named Michael as well.
