I worked many years as a professional (paid) house/plant/pet sitter and would like to offer my services now as a trade for the opportunity to travel and stay in new places, etc.
I have taken care of cats (predominantly ; ), dogs, chickens, fish, turtles, hermit crabs, wild birds, indoor plants, and outdoor gardens.
I'm a non-smoker/non-drinker, into healthy food/cooking, (used to be a private chef) and i keep a tidy kitchen/home (also worked as a home organizer : )
I am trustworthy and respectful of others' space, and i am very aware and conscientious about home safety/security. i have some basic home maintenance skills from taking care of my own and others homes that can come in handy when housesitting.
I am also responsible and resourceful, and can be relied upon to keep my commitments, as i have never cancelled a sit in the 10+ years i have been doing it. i am able to handle situations that may arise, efficiently and effectively, and i have a number of past/repeat clients who have told me that they really appreciate that when i sit for them they don't even have to think/worry about things while they are away because they know their home and beloveds are in good hands.
i'd be happy to talk with you in further detail about my experience and interests, and your needs! Let's chat!
