Available to pamper your pets with affection, humor, and extra cuddling while you're away. Conscientious and cheerful, with positive attitude I aim for a harmonious household and contented inhabitants. Recently selling my home in Michigan while exploring new areas, am happy to carefully care for yours as though my own.

I've been governess, gardener, teacher and magazine writer, am presently working on a book. Midwesterner by birth, have also lived in Boston, New York, and Paris (fluent french). For many years I owned a thriving herb business & fragrant flower farm, selling product countrywide and teaching classes on edible, medicinal, & historical perfume plants for universities and botanical gardens.

This year has brought new friendships along the road of housesitting, from Cape Cod & Long Island, to New Jersey & Washington DC. Living and writing in a client's home for extended periods, I'm inspired by new surroundings, experiences, a vision of life through others' eyes.

As nature observer and chronicler, am equally content in peaceful setting or cityscape. Should four-legged family members be part of household, as longtime pet owner I take special delight in their companionship. Later, when asked back for additional housesits, how gratifying to rejoin furry little pals and old friends once more.

Happy to send references and resume. Looking forward to hearing from you!

GardenWriter has cat sit for us multiple times now, and we definitely recommend her. She's incredibly responsive, and clearly communicates her needs and plans. She's easy to work with, reliable, and very friendly! She even saved a number of my houseplants, pointing out when they needed different amounts of light and water :) Our cat Mochi adores her, and Sharon always shares fun updates and pictures of Mochi while we're gone!
