We are an adventurous lesbian couple who have been together for almost 22 years.
We both used to work together as School Bus Drivers. (Kimberly drove Special Needs children & Linda drove an 86 passenger bus). Recently, Linda changed companies and now drives Special Needs children and Kimberly has taken a full-time 14 day/14 day fly in/fly out job up in Northern Alberta.
We are highly trained and have taken many courses that assist us in high stress and unpredictable situations (including medical emergencies) so we are more than capable of handling a variety of situations with expertise and most importantly.....with common sense.
We love to travel and absolutely love to travel within Canada and the US and Mexico. We would love the chance to take care of someones pets & home while having the time to explore during our sit. We also love to hike and bike (flatter trails these days) and enjoy outdoor activities. "Pickleball" has become the new sport of choice for us these days :)
We volunteer a lot of our time for several worthy causes. We believe that we all should do our part in serving our community and love taking the opportunity to do so while engaging with people from all over the world - while, in many cases, making long lasting friendships.
Kimberly currently is a volunteer board member for 2 Global LGBTQ Sports Boards and is also part of the Steering Committee who is responsible for oversight on the deliverables, (36 sports and numerous cultural events and activities), for the 11th edition of the Gay Games which will be held in Hong Kong & Guadalajar in postponed from 2022). She is the Officer of Sports for the Federation of Gay Games who are celebrating its 40th Anniversary this year!
Linda assists Kimberly with numerous responsibilities during her global events and helps raise funds for STARS Ambulance. She loves to take care of our 2 Grandsons when the opportunity arises, Nana also used to run an at home daycare back in the day when her kids were young.
We both have been long time volunteers with the local Food Bank & Santas Anonymous, delivering much needed food hampers, donation items and gifts during the holidays.
We both also canvas for donation items for use in silent auctions specifically for the United Way and for Daniels Place (an organization that raises funds to create sensory rooms for autistic children). Daniel was a former high school student of Kimberly's and who passed away 5 years ago. Volunteering for various local Special Olympic events is also a very big part of both our lives.
Linda has an online business and is able to work from anywhere in the world while previously, she was a cleaning specialist for upscale residential homes.
Kimberly has been a professional soccer referee for 44 years and has recently taken up refereeing volleyball.
We had a wonderful bichon/cocker cross for 14 years but she sadly passed away a few years ago so we understand how pets are indeed a huge part of a family. We would love to be able to take care of your pet(s) and your home while continue to gain more opportunities to explore and creating lifelong experiences along the way in your hometown and area.
