Mike and I are recently retired professionals. Mike was a hands on project manager capable of handing any issues that may arise during in your home while you are away. I was employed in a pharmacy at a local hospital and also worked in a hospital Renal Unit consulting with patients about their medications. We both hold Nexus cards (security clearance cards designed for pre-approved travellers).
We enjoy slow travel, immersing and enjoying local culture. House sitting allows us to follow this path as well as giving us time with animals we love so much.
