Joey is a lifelong Alaskan who lives in Anchorage with her husband and 3 children. She raced at West High School where many of the same amazing green grunts we love were officiating the races. Joey than went on to compete in college and at the national level. The inspiration of NSAA, the Alaska ski community and the years skiing at Kincaid inspired Joey to come back to Anchorage post college and start coaching. She coached at Chugiak High School for 10 years with her husband Ja Dorris and then helped create the Alaska Nordic Racing Club for over 20 years. Most recently, Joey worked for USSA as the Nordic Program Manager and attended the Sochi, Olympics as a Team Leader for all the Nordic sports. She has a personal mission to help inspire all ages to be active, participate and enjoy, and as well as volunteer, giving back to this great community.
