My name is Jeff Covey, and I'm a 47-year-old American. I was a caregiver for my partner and my parents from 2008 until 2015, and have been using housesitting as an opportunity to see new places now that I'm free to travel again. I've owned two homes, have been housesitting since June of 2015, and have references available from over 30 satisfied homeowners.

I keep a running list of my housesitting engagements to my web site link in profile.

I have a Bachelors Degree in Music and have spent most of my working life as an editor for a technology-related . I speak Spanish well and am continuing my studies of the language. I’m beginning to learn French. I enjoy animals and owned a cat from when she was a kitten until her death 21 years later. She had various health issues in her old age, and I had experience with giving her daily pills for the last few years of her life. Since I started housesitting, I’ve cared for many cats, many dogs of various sizes and ages, and a bird or two.

If my video introduction isn't attached to this profile, you can view it  in you tube link in profile.

I have no ties to a particular place at this time, and I'm open to all possibilities. I would look forward to responsibly and conscientiously caring for your property and pets. Please let me know if I can help you and if there are any questions about myself I can answer for you. I am available by phone, FaceTime, and WhatsApp. I look forward to hearing from you!
