Former legal counsel and expat, I an lucky to have lived an adventurous life living and travelling all over the world. I grew up with animals at home and on my grandparents' farm, and that childhood instilled a deep love of and respect for the natural world and all creatures big and small.  I adore cats  and was a servant to several, they moved with me all over the world.  Friends consider me practical and independent: I drove 6000 miles by myself on a road trip through the American Midwest and explored the heart of Borneo as a single traveler, and I know how to handle unforseen  stress situations such as the flooding of my home when living in Houston.  Socially kind and outgoing but introverted by nature, I prefer a calm and quiet lifestyle: in bed by ten and up with the birds. Having lived an expatriate lifestyle, I know first hand how stressful it can be to leave your home and pets in the care of others, and I will look after your property and any pets as if they were my own. Research and writing at home occupy a significant part of my day so your home will be secure and your pets will have a lot of company. Dutch is my native language, I am fluent in English, and I speak French and German  - and most importantly, Meow!  I like my surroundings to be organised and sparkling clean and  I will look after your home with respect and care. Tending to your garden will be a joy and a great way to exercise in the outdoors.
