Your home will be cared for as if it were my own. I am a home owner and manage rental property, therefore I am aware that your property is an investment to be protected.
Healthy and active (non-smoker), I have a strong work ethic. I love to be organized and tidy -- my motto is "Leave it better than you found it". Previous housesits in Ireland, Italy, Greece; references available.
I have no children and no pets at this time, although usually have dogs.
I have lived in the country (outside a university town) for over 30 years, so I'm comfortable in either a rural or urban setting (i.e. I can handle bugs, snakes, and other critters). I desire to take seasons away from work, in order to make new friends and broaden my cultural perspective.
I work for a software development company as the administrator of the Technical Support Department.
I worked with Alabama Water Watch for eight years - an organization dedicated to training volunteer water quality monitors; I've been a volunteer water quality monitor since 2001.
My attention to detail and organizational skills are abilities that often prove useful when performing the duties of caring for pets and housesitting. I enjoy meeting people and helping others. I've helped manage guest apartments during two housesits.
I love music, playing the piano and singing. Hiking, reading and learning are other interests. I'm trying to learn how to sail Oh boy!
Any questions? Please send me a message. References are available (including previous housesits).
