I retired at the end of May 2018; my almost 30-year overseas career enabled me to live in a variety of countries, and I loved it! After wrapping up several open projects in Europe, I want to spend some time housesitting in different parts of the U.S. and mix that with some quality time traveling and experiencing new places in other countries before eventually deciding where to settle down.
Although I've just joined Housecarers , I have been a member of another popular site (THs) for over a year and have completed 5 housesits with them in England, Finland and Germany. My 5-star references are available there (and I would be happy to provide copies).
I possess the Global Entry card and can provide copy, as proof of background clearance. I also maintained a TS US government clearance for my entire working career.
When I was younger I helped take care of a variety of animals and, with my own three children, we sheltered dogs and cats. I do not smoke and am very responsible. Before going overseas, I owned several of my own homes and took care of most things myself, so am reasonably handy around the house.
In my free time, I like to be outside, hiking, bike riding, enjoying nature and, of course, traveling to new places and meeting interesting people. I'm not sure what else to include here, but would be happy to answer any questions. Please feel free to reach out to me!
