Hello! My name is Julia and for most of the year, I live in the US, in the state of Minnesota. I am adventurous, intelligent, hardworking & curious. I am also independent, quiet, clean, organized, and am content to be in nature, reading books, and spending time with animals. I have extensive travel experience around the world: Central America, Europe, Africa, Japan, etc.  I’ve been teaching in public schools for 30+ years and traveled regularly with my students. These days I prefer not to be a tourist, but to travel by settling into new places for extended periods of time to experience the local life and connect to people.

I’ve always had pets or taken care of others’ pets. My first cat Koozya lived to be 18, Simba (a giant 115-lb German Shepherd dog) passed away 10 years ago at age 11.  These days I own 2 large black cats, Freddy and Zorro, who enjoy wandering around the neighborhood (they are indoor/outdoor cats.) As you can see, I "speak" both dogs and cats fluently (as well as German and Russian).

For the past 7 years, I’ve been frequently taking care of my neighbors' dog during their travels. Last summer I house/dog-sat in Costa Rica for a month (can provide references) and realized what a wonderful way it was to experience various cultures and life styles. It left me eager to seek more opportunities like it.

During the short growing season in Minnesota I enjoy tending to my flower and vegetable garden, and would gladly care for your plants as well. 

If you feel like I would be a good fit, please feel free to reach out! My availability starts June 15, 2018. I will care for your home and pets as I would my own.
