I retired from teaching elementary school two years ago. I also have a Masters in educational counseling. I own my own home in Utah. I enjoy cleaning (believe it or not), reading, dining out, my thirteen grandchildren, and, occasionally, golfing. I am dependable and honest. When I was younger, I liked to move new places so I have lived in San Francisco, Manhattan, New Orleans, and Georgia. I have, as of this writing, completed six housesitting assignments and have received high recommendations on all of them. They have included both dogs and cats. I look forward to this new adventure very much.
