Melissa and Chris are a pair of freelance editors and world travelers who enjoy experiencing new places and new cultures.
We are experienced house sitters who will care lovingly for your home, possessions, animals, and garden while you are away. We have been homeowners ourselves, so we know how to keep a house clean and well maintained. We are also both animal lovers: We have served as a trusted foster home for cats and kittens from local rescue organizations, and Melissa has worked as a veterinary technician, with experience monitoring the health of pets and giving medications. Chris is an enthusiastic gardener.
We are dependable, honest, quiet, respectful of your property, nonsmokers, non-drug-takers, and environmentally aware. We are also smart, friendly, and adaptable. We have international drivers’ licenses and clean driving records and have never been in trouble with the law. (Chris is a retired employee of the U.S. government and passed an FBI background check when she was rehired in .) We are experienced international travelers comfortable living in unfamiliar places and foreign cultures.
