Why you should choose me
Why should you invite me into your home and entrust your beloved pets and cherished belongings to a total stranger? My experience as a business owner, homeowner, pet caretaker, mother and grandmother has prepared me for most situations that come my way. I'm organized, technically savvy, thoughtful and friendly. I do best in tidy homes.
Why I want to house sit
My desire to housesit began several years ago when caring for a coworkers home and pets in another part of town. Though I'm a Denver metro native, I had never spent time in that neighborhood. While walking the dogs, I discovered hidden parks, charming coffee shops and chatted with neighbors while visiting yard sales. I was hooked and vowed that I would make time in my life to have more adventures like that. A win all around.
After 26 years as a licensed pet rescuer in the state of Colorado, I retired as of May this year. During those 26 years, I Founded and was both Managing Director and Executive Director of two pet rescues. Both still actively saving over 1000 pets each, per year.
Three years ago, I discovered housesitting for pets as a travel option. Gave it a try to see if It was a good fit when I retired. Now 13 Housesits later, and retired, it’s all I had hoped it would be. Housesitting is a natural for me. I love the company, (and challenges) of pets. I understand that while homeowners love their pets, there are times when they must be separated. Often boarding is not available or not appropriate for the pets well being. Often medication or dietary issues of your pet(s) prevent your friends or neighbors from being available for your pet(s). My medical background with pets and easygoing nature is often just what you need to make your travels carefree. The housesits that I have done were so rewarding and successful that I'm advertising to do it again.
