I am a healthy 64 yr old retired teacher, wife and Mom to two grown children - also a homeowner.   I taught piano for  30+ years and began taking care of my students' houses and pets when they went on holiday.  As my children matured and needed me less, I expanded my house/pet caring to destinations I wanted to visit and explore.  

I would describe myself as honest, frugal, practical and resourceful. I have good problem solving and communication skills. I am healthy, both mentally and physically, warm and loving. I usually assume the positive in people and have led a blessed life. I am well educated with graduate degrees and have never stopped seeking intellectual as well as spiritual growth.

I will want to do some exploring and "touristy" things in your area, but my first priority will always be to care for your pets, water your plants, collect your mail, maintain your pool or small garden, protect your property; all, leaving no footprint behind.

I fly to most of my house-sitting destinations and In order to maintain financial feasibility, I may ask for the use of your car while you are gone. I am a fully insured, licensed driver.  I may ask you, the homeowner, to provide references and photos, just as I will do the same.  The conditions of the housesit are flexible and usually on a case-by- case basis. The terms will be made clear at the time of commitment. 

I have come to appreciate how unique, how wonderfully intricate, complicated and sacred all sentient life is. We share many biological traits and many intuitive senses with other animals, These may include feelings of grief, pain, trust, depression, anxiety and joy. I believe that all living things deserve the highest respect and care we humans, their guardians and stewards, can give them.

Hope to hear from you,

Anne Sheppard
