Professional Experience: I am a retired nurse, partially retired registered clinical counsellor, group facilitator and aquaponics farmer. I have worked as a nurse, supervised a counselling team, owned and operated a farm, a ranch, and a private practice, and co owned and managed an organics aquaponics farm and fruitstand. My employers, employees and clients will tell you that I am consistently positive, reliable, cheerful, caring, respectful and a great communicator.
Personal Experience: I have been married forty seven years, and have co-parented five children, dogs, cats, guinea pigs, horses, cows, chickens and turkeys. Together with Hubbie I've fished, farmed, ranched, picked fruit, mowed lawns, rennovated houses, and co-maintained multiple homes, acreages, a 360 acre farm and a 2,400 acre cattle ranch. I grew up in a floating village on the western coast of Canada and have been comfortable living off grid, rural and urban.
Why I want to house sit: Hubbie will continue to work for several more years. As I move toward partial retirement, telecounselling and cyber counselling, I will have the opportunity to spend time in various parts of the world, trying out potential retirement spots. What better way to do this than by caring for your home and your pets? As well, I look forward to some privacy and the time to work on writing and music.
Hobbies: Travel, music, reading, being in nature, exploring, learning, writing, playing piano, seeking unique experiences and new knowledge, the ocean.
What I need: Wi-fi, a phone connection and a non smoking home. Also, AirCon if its' super hot and access to transportation so I can do some exploring, and a comfortable, attractive environment. Prefer to be on or near water or a place with high walkability score. I live isolated, in the country, and would love the change of exploring easy access villages, towns and cities.
What I offer: Great references, decades of experience, honesty and integrity. I do not smoke, partake of illicit substances or have rowdy parties! I will provide necessities along with love and snuggles to your pets. I have rented our suites and managed tenants for years, and recently operated a B&B. We currently have 5 tenants.
