I am a 35 year old professional, single female currently residing in the Fraser Valley, BC. I am taking a leave from work for the next 4-6 months, after which I anticipate relocating back to Vancouver Island - I was born and raised in Vancouver, however I have spent 3 of the last 5 years on the Island, which I consider to be "home".
Prior to my relocation, I thought I would spend the summer around my hometown(s) - the Lower Mainland and/or Vancouver Island - house sitting, and taking it easy before I jump back into the hectic work life. I would love a house sitting assignment anywhere on Vancouver Island, but I would be happy to housesit in the Lower Mainland (where my family lives). I am available for housesitting assignments as of June 25, 2017, and will be updating my calendar (linked to this profile) if and when my availability changes.
I LOVE animals, have experience with all kinds ranging from livestock, to your basic four legged fur balls. I'm also quite adept at administering medications and have a special knack with cats. I love birds/wildlife, and am also happy to keep your outdoor critters well fed (hummingbird feeders/wild bird feeders, etc.).
I would respect your home as my own. I do not smoke, nor do I drink. I live a pretty clean, quiet life. I would mostly be spending time reading, keeping your home well looked after, and going for leisurley walks (with your pooch?), and enjoying the beautiful summer.
Formerly, a licensed strata manager (property manager), I am more than capable of maintaining your home, keeping a watchful eye, and addressing any issues that may arise. I am quite handy, and will promptly report any issues that may need resolution. Furthermore, if you have any routine scheduled maintenance on your home (gardeners, various scheduled repairs, etc.), I am more than happy to act as your liaison and ensure that the work is performed as you would expect.
I would also like to add that I am more than happy to give you daily, weekly, bi-weekly updates (or simply at your request) of your home/pet complete with photographs or videos, to give you peace of mind that your home and your loved pets are being lovingly cared for.
I can provide a criminal record check, proof of prior employment history, personal references, etc.
I am happy to meet you - in person, or via internet based camera phone chat.
