I am a college counselor and teacher who is interested in relocating to a warm coastal area or possibly the southwest. I have owned a variety of pets (including dogs), and I currently own a large home on a half acre with pool, spa, organic garden and cats, so I am very experienced at taking care of a home & animals. I would be delighted to have an opportunity to take care of your home and pets while you are away. I am mature, healthy, responsible and trustable, and I love gardening and the outdoors.
