I am an 'almost' retired professional mother living in Montreal, Canada. My schedule allows me the freedom to get away from my home to take care of yours. I am an honest, reliable, mature person who is looking to travel to Europe, the UK, US and Central America.
As my daughter has almost finished university, I find I have a lot of time on my hands and I love to travel. What a wonderful way to see the world and meet locals of different nationalities by tending to their home and animals. Fluent in English, French and a general knowledge of Spanish allows me to travel to areas, which do not have English as a native tongue.
I understand the complexities of taking care of a home; whether it is general upkeep of the house itself, or the animals, gardens and plants. I spent a month this summer taking care of a large organic garden and the sweetest sassy cat, while house sitting in Costa Rica. Recently, I had the opportunity to spend a week just outside of NYC with a large and lovely dog, and her 3 feline housemates. Bermuda and Grand Cayman had wonderful dogs and cats :)
As well, when I travel to the USA, Canada and the Caribbean, I usually use Home Away to find a house to rent, so in essence, I currently work part time for a pet sitting service in Montreal, and have taken care of dogs, cats, rabbits and other animals. I work with dogs everyday, sometimes as many as 15 at a time, and love it!
