Hello! A little about me....I am a retired critical care nurse and respiratory therapist (I have both skills and still maintain both professional licenses), and worked in the medical field for thirty years. I am also a long distance hiker and have hiked over 18,000 miles and made history twice. I stay VERY active! You won't find a better house sitter. I am a non-smoker and non-drinker (social), and have a strong ethic of being completely respectful of other's property. You will find your home in the same condition as you leave it! I will care for your home, but at the same time respect your privacy. I am responsible and trustworthy, and have no interest in your personal business.
I travel with my two small dogs- a 14 year old Maltese and a 10 year old long haired chihuahua. (A rescue from Mexico.) Neither barks or destroys property and they are happy to sleep all day except for their daily walks. Both love all other people and animals and are completely non-aggressive. I have house sat with my pups in homes that had 2-4 cats and everyone got along fine. (And that is stated in a recent letter of reference from a home owner.) I am an animal lover and will offer your pet(s) excellent care and much affection and kindness.
Please know that I will be happy to provide bond and a background check upon request. As it stands, I do have a valid 5 year fingerprint clearance card, as far as my background and can provide a copy of that as well. Also, you can Google "Gail Lowe-Hiker" to find articles that have been published about me and my hiking if you are interested in knowing more about that. It truly is my passion!
I have recently accepted 3 jobs with 3 different companies, teaching English to Chinese students online. So my one requirement is that there be reliable internet service wherever I housesit. Most of my hours are booked on weekends, since the Chinese students are off school then and available for classes. I do work weekdays as well, but usually only in the mornings.
I am seeking long term housesitting positions and am willing to travel anywhere in the USA and Mexico. (Eventually, I hope to travel worldwide.) I love exploring new areas and meeting new people. I hope you'll consider me for your housesitting needs! I look forward to hearing from you!
