I work full time as an adult literacy instructor with a community college in Vancouver. I have several years experience house and pet sitting. I am mature, responsible, trustworthy and dependable and love pets. I am fortunate to have a flexible teaching schedule, and am very interested in spending time in other areas of Vancouver and other countries for a month or two at a time. I have lived in Vancouver for 20 years, and I've also lived in Toronto, China, on Baffin Island and in rural and urban Manitoba. I've house and pet sat on a farm in Victoria, Australia for two months,and in Mullingar,Ireland for two months in 2010, 2011 and 2012. I am currently also very interested in a longer term house sitting arrangement in Vancouver or the Lower Mainland. I am a non-smoker, very active, love to walk, bike and swim. I will take excellent care of your home and pets, and will leave your home in excellent condition. I love cats and dogs, and love to explore new places. Your home and pets will be well cared for and loved. I have several excellent references as well.
