Mature professional woman experienced with house/pet sitting. I will take care of your home and your pets, plants and other needs when you are away and keep it clean and secure for you. I work out at a gym, keep in shape, and I eat plain foods that don't require much preparation.
I cook very simply so your kitchen stays clean. I steam foods, which minimizes kitchen odors. I am mostly vegetarian and keep a clean kitchen area.
I ask a fee small for my own food during this housesit. I consider this a job, and I have other bills too take care of as usual, but a fee is negotiable. I have social security income. I do massage therapy outcalls only. I will keep in touch with you if you like, by or phone.
I'm cheerful and friendly and pets generally like me very much after a few days of getting used to each other. I read, listen to music, work on computer, and do my illustration projects while minding your home. I have two adult children living independently in the Bay Area. I don't invite friends to visit without your permission in advance.
I'm good at dealing with and solving any problems that may arise during my house sit.
I attend to housecleaning as well as gardening and pet care. We can do a complete house check together and we discuss what is expected during your absence and for your return.
You can obtain references through ing past clients. My local house sitting has been in the San Francisco Bay Area, Contra Costa and the East Bay for the past 10 years.
References given upon interview. As a certified massage therapist, I have been finger printed and have a background and FBI check at trustline. This is for caregiving and care of children.
I am a credentialed adult art teacher for community college.
