I am an American Educator and Scholar on sabbatical, spending time in Australia and South Africa before finishing a masters program.
I'm clean, mindful, and extremely caring.
I adore animals and organic gardening! I have worked in animal rescue and have taught gardening in my classroom. I have experience pet and house sitting in the United States and am glad to supply references. I have experience with many breeds, large and small, easy and some more fear-based. I have experience raising chickens and tending to small/medium farm animals. I have been caring for children for over 20 years and am a compassionate and present caregiver.
I enjoy the quiet little things about life.. catching up with loved ones, reading, yoga, long walks, hikes, nature, and simple delicious meals.
I am looking forward to experiencing the beauty of new corners of the world while caring for children, homes, and animals.
I am a professional artist and mural painter as well, and have been happy to consider and complete work in client's homes, gardens, and nurseries during my stay. See: photos for some examples of my work.
Thank you for your time and consideration!
Note: unfortunately, while I love cats, I am allergic and cannot sit homes with cats. :(
And, I am a non-smoker. :)
