The wife... was US NAVY and is now an Aesthetic Nurse Specialist - you know... an RN that is certified to do Botox, chemical peels, injectable fillers, lipo (fat loss) devices, platelet rich plasma (PRP) , lasers , etc... So.. since she is a Nurse, she will be more than happy to give your pets meds, or extra TLC. As of now, she runs an online beauty store and consultation business and is also a Corporate Flight Attendant. She is planning on starting a travel business - which is her passion.
The Hubby ... Full on remodel work years experience in the trades. big or small.....I do it all..... (I like to keep the work Interior). Been there, done that, got the T-shirt, wrote the book, made the movie..... I do this stuff all over the US with great references and Pics of Before and Afters. The tools needed can sometimes pose a problem (cant fly with a table saw..... It takes up more than one seat). If you need something done while we are housesitting for you, please feel free to ask and we can try to work it in the deal.
Together.. We were Camp Counselor and Camp Nurse one summer in the Poconos, We have flipped homes in Florida, Worked the BP Oil Spill together, Worked property management as a manager, Collected rents, enforced evictions and everything in between. Wife also has a Real Estate license and I also do high end Ornamental Plaster Mouldings.
We have been married over 20 years, raised a son, and have also done home exchanges, bartering for numerous things / vacations, etc... and we also love couch surfing for the experience. We are on work-aways, , etc.. and always looking for an adventure of some sort, or sorts... We love gardening, we love pets, we have had dogs, cats, ferrets, chickens and ostriches.....okay , No Ostriches. We like to experience life in other places, and would look after your home, as we have our own homes, with care and responsibility. We are both non-smokers, like a quiet lifestyle and we can certainly provide references.
Our FIRST priority is taking care of your home and pets, but if we can arrange it near these times, it would be beneficial for both of us.
