Hello. My wife and I are retired educators from Wisconsin. I was an Industrial Arts/Earth Science Teacher and Guidance Counselor, my wife was an Elementary School Guidance Counselor and Principal. We are very active volunteers with the American Red Cross and have been deployed at numerous national disasters where we provide Disaster Mental Health Services to staff and survivors. We spent March & April of 2009 house-sitting, gardening, and doing minor repairs to a home in rural Force, Italy and August & September 2010 house and pet sitting and gardening in a small village in Greece. December and January of we house-sat in Hillsborough, North Carolina. While there we helped with pet care and minor yard work. March and April of 2011 we cared for a home near Umbertide, Italy for three weeks. While there we did garden and carpentry work for the owners. We traveled to Nova Scotia and helped with pet care and house-sitting during late August and early September of The spring of 2012 found us in Portland, Oregon sitting and providing pet care for a couple. February and March of 2013 we cared for a home and two wonderful dogs in Santa Fe, New Mexico. During the months of October and November 2013 we were back in Umbertide and helped our friend with their olive harvest as we sat a home of their in-laws. More recently we have done housesits in Portland, Oregon, Henderson, Nevada and Albuquerque, New Mexico.  We are energetic, hard-working, flexible folks who love to travel and experience life in new communities. Being retired, our dates of availability are somewhat flexible. We would be happy to forward a resume, references, and other documents as needed.
