I have 30 yrs hosting/hospitality/teaching/tours experience including many skills applicable to a great house-sitting experience: Fivestar hospitality training, Event, Staff, & Property Mgmt/Supervision, Online/Database/BoxOffice Admin, Fire/health & safety/WHMIS cert's plus an up to date police check. 

I have vast travel/work/life experience that includes respectfully overseeing the care of everything from people's private homes/cottages/pets thru to temp project/admin/mgmt. of a century old Opera House to a B & B, to retail biz's and even overseeing a threemilliondollar lodge with Five star upgrades...be assured I am very responsible and will respect your baby, property and belongings.

Recently empty- nested, and now designing award-winning wearable art from The Beaches in Toronto, which I sell online and in stores/galleries...I can now work or travel/stay anywhere year round ... I am seeking various opportunities from house-sitting/liveinresidence work, to possibly paid work, to short-term visits to interesting new places from as nearby as Muskoka/Toronto to as far away as BC (house-sit/pet-sit temporarily) or Scotland, for any combo of days to months, yearround. I love making new international friends, travel/work/sitting opportunities, and more...

I have had excellent experiences with prior business, house & petsits and can't wait to do more! As a prior home & cottage owner myself, mom to three grown up 'babies', non-smoker, and avid gardener and "foodie", I would be happy to lovingly watch your home and pets as well as am open to discussing numerous other "upgrades" I can offer to this service such as gardening, home organizing, staging, cooking, even painting/decorating...I've done it all!  Happy to trade/barter services as well. 

I look forward to hearing from you and learning more about your furbabies and home!  :)

Current Reference (I swear I didn't write it)

"Jocelyn is a consummate professional, we can not say enough good things about her. She comes prepared, on time and with a great deal of experience with house sitting unique places and animals. Our usual amazing house sitter was booked alas, but after posting on here, Jocelyn contacted us and after a quick call and meet and greet we felt great leaving our high maintenance brood to her capable self. We returned to three very healthy, happy cats and a home that was much cleaner than we left it. We have been absolutely spoiled! The best part for us was the updates we received from her, it was so nice to know everything was Ok at home even with the horrendous weather. Jocelyn is also a super cool person".
