Debra lives in Greeley Colorado with Paul Speck. She is a 60 year old high energy, inquisitive traveler who learns so much from visiting diverse cultures. She has been an educator for 20 years and has had various roles in leadership throughout her career. She has taught in Colorado and at two international schools in Brazil. Although she is an international traveler, the experince of living abroad has heightened her desire to experience new places for longer periods to really learn from the place and people. Debra loves animals, is a super housekeeper, and is a trusting responsible person. 

Paul Speck is a 65 year old retired builder of energy efficient housing. He is the previous owner of Earthhomes LLC. He loves to create beautiful spaces, spend time in nature, and loves animals. Paul is very capable at handling household emergencies. He currently lives in Greeley Colorado with his dog, two turtles, and of course, Debra.

Paul and Debra are at a time in their lives when they deisre to slow down their ambitous work load and spend time together traveling and learnig to stop and smell the flowers.  Housesitting and taking care of your animlas could be a great opportunity for them to travel, and a great opportunity for you to rest assured that your home and pets are in responsible caring hands. We love to take long walks, read books, listen to music, cook, and hang out with furry friends.

We would like to housesit in a non-smoking comfortable  home that has all the necessities needed to cook and also have wifi to be able to check in with our friends and  family in Colorado. We have had the fortune of finding each other and falling in love 4 years ago and we currently manage and care for two homes. A main residence, and a small mountain summer cabin, which we often rent out in the summer. We have housesitted for a wonerful family in Sydney, Australia and have a reference letter from them attached here.  Please consider us for your homecare.

We are planning on traveling Hawaii in the months of October-March 2019. We would be available during a portion of that time to housesit and care for your pets.

Debra and Paul cared for our home and pets while we visited our family in Northern Virginia for Thanksgiving.  They are a gracious couple and we enjoyed getting to know them and feel that we have new found life long friends.  In addition, they took fantastic care of Spencer, our 8 year old poodle and 2 cats.  Spencer enjoyed 4 mile walks and Pandora and Percy were cared for in a living manner.

Debra and Paul laundered their bedding, towels and repaired a couple of items that needed attention in our home.
