I am a recently retired educator who has provided house and pet sitting services in the following places: Switzerland, Canada, Alaska, Texas, Oregon, Montana, Washington, Colorado, and Mississippi, and Mexico. I am diligent, drug and alcohol-free, healthy and extremely dependable. I pay special attention to details related to the care of the home for which I am sitting, as well as the safety, health, and well-being of the pets whose care has been entrusted to me.
I have been an animal lover since I was a small child. Animals, like children and travel, are my joys. I tend to develop a very trusting relationship with pets, for they seem to immediately intuit that with me they are safe and will be well cared for. I am an introvert who shies away from large groups, so pets provide me great companionship and comfort. In addition, as a pet lover myself, I totally understand one's love for his or her trusted companions.
I am a worldwide traveler, having visited twenty-three countries since retiring. When I travel, I usually do so to provide volunteer service. I have worked in museums, monasteries, and English immersion programs throughout the world. As a result, I have enjoyed amazing adventures and pleasures since my retirement.
I will be happy to send a copy of my Texas Department of Public Safety Criminal History Clearance so that you will feel secure leaving your home and pets in my care. I will also be happy to send you letters of recommendation and send you the link to my other housesitting site where they are listed.
