author, professor, and dog musher, Dr. Linda Chamberlain has combined her
public health career with her passion for dog mushing and rural living. An
epidemiologist specializing in childhood exposure to violence and brain
development, she is known for her ability to translate science into
practical information with diverse audiences. Dr. Chamberlain is also a
motivational speaker and uses “lessons from the trail” that she has
learned as a dog musher to convey key strategies for leadership
development and teamwork.
Dr. Chamberlain lives with her 20 Huskies and her husband, Al, on a
45-acre homestead outside of Homer, Alaska. During the summer months, she
leads narrated tours of a circa 1910 wall tent, the sled dog kennel, and a
living museum of dog mushing on their homestead. Dr. Chamberlain has
published a book called "Arctic Inspirations: Rural Women Creating
Personal Success and Starting Small Businesses" based on her research on
rural entrepreneurs during a Kellogg Leadership Fellowship and her work
with women in Alaska, northwestern Canada, and eastern Siberia. She is
currently working on a book called “Mushing the Mail on the Iditarod
Trail” that traces the history of mail delivery by dog team in Alaska.
