About Jared:

Salutations, I'm Jared.  I have traveled all over the world and never tire of seeing new places and meeting new people. I love to care for and work with animals (I'm a certified dog trainer), garden, do general maintenance/upkeep, ride bikes, read books, climb mountains, sail, and eat great food. I settled in Aloha, OR in 2018 after a 8 month van trip of the US and falling in love with the Oregon coast.  I love being in new places, experiencing new cultures and looking for my next place for roots. I'm a firm believer in leaving a place better than I found it whether that's a campsite, a spot on the beach for a day, hiking trail, or your home and I look forward to the opportunity.  

Work Experience:

I am a retired military veteran with 15 years experience in logistics, asset and personnel management, and curriculum development.  In addition to operating government budgets, my core skillset is as a Survival subject matter expert which has allowed me to work with foreign nations: Djibouti, China, Singapore, Panama, Ireland, Spain, Germany, Australia, Iraq, Afghanistan and Canada.  This has afforded me the experience and appreciation of cultures, customs and lifestyles from all walks of life and nearly every continent.  As a semi-retiree, I currently spend my time boarding and training dogs and traveling as much as possible as a part-time digital nomad.

Volunteer Experience:  

The Salvation Army, Meals on Wheels, ICRC (International Committee of Red Cross), Second Harvest Food Bank, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Open Doors Food Bank, Habitat for Humanity, It's the Pitts Dog Rescue and Paws Animal Shelter.

Animal Experience

I have 4 years of foster experience with  501c3 non-profit canine rescues in San Diego, Los Angeles and the greater Portland areas.  My responsibilities with them along with my dog trainer work has included the following:  Feeding, exercise, grooming, house training, medical care or nursing after surgeries or spay/neuter (ie: administering medication, cleaning/dressing wounds, re-bandaging, and ensuring crate rest), transport to/from veterinarian appointments, transport to/from and handling foster animal(s) for adoption events, transport to/from adoption interacts, basic training, leash training, and behavior modification work (ie:  chewing, jumping, anxiety, aggression/reactivity).  The majority of my time was spent with animals requiring medical and behavioral rehabilitation including:  Recovery from surgeries, breaks, skin/wound infections, hair loss, stitches, neglect, open wounds, crate/separation anxiety.

In addition, I’ve worked periodically on a Alpaca farm on Vancouver Island, British Columbia working with:  Lamas, Alpacas, Goats, Calves, Chickens, Cats and Dogs.
