** 12+ years house/pet sitting experience with multiple (enthusiastic! )references :) My more recent testimonials/recommendations can be viewed on the local sitter sites I use. I'll send you links when we get in touch!
**Friendly, down to earth, & conscientious, I've been told I put people (and animals) at ease.
**My animal friends know/love/remember me, and vice/versa (I have many repeat pet/housesitting jobs over the many years I've been doing this) Check out some of their pictures in my photo gallery!
**I have owned a home as a single woman & care for yours not as mine, but as YOURS -- as you request and with the extra special care and concern I believe one should give when responsible for other people's property
**Recently and repeatedly passed background check for my former teaching job and local sitter I also use
** Fifteen+ years teaching and social work background = many passed background checks throughout
** Responsible, professional, service oriented - until recently, I ran an online resume writing business as well, with a background in social work, training/supervisor, and customer service (currently I work from home, thus I can travel, but am home a lot when I do!)
** Non-smoker, no drugs (of course!), not really a drinker other than the occasional beer or wine with dinner or outing (no problem if you prefer no drinking)
** Clean, neat, detail oriented - all will be in order as you left it, or better, when you return, this is my standard (*I offer to do special projects while you are away - ask me about this extra option!)
** Plant/yard/pool care (etc.) also fine and included, just ask
My dream is of a mobile lifestyle with different online work and am making it a reality for 5+ years now. Therefore, I do need broadband internet access (wi-fi preferable but not required)
I would be honored to care for your castle & critters in the same manner you would.
I have a questionnaire/checklist I use to gather vital info and instructions when I house/petsit, and of course welcome your specific input and needs.
Happy to answer any questions, of course.
And happily awaiting to hear from you, many thanks!
