About Me

Kris is a former Casino Host who retired young when she finished working on the cruise ships. Her Managers have described her as always going over and above what was expected of her. Her attention to detail and her attentiveness to the casino patrons was always top-notch.

Twenty-one years working in casinos is a testament to her honesty and integrity as she had to pass regular police checks and random drug tests to maintain her casino license. Her recent approval for residency in Mexico is further proof that she is a responsible member of society.

She is a non-smoker and non-partier who wants to experience all that the world has to offer and encourages others to do the same.

She was a homeowner until the yearning to go to sea was too great to ignore any longer. She maintained her own properties and learned a great deal doing her own renovations.

When possible, she likes to volunteer with community organizations. She taught dog training classes for Baja Dogs Rescue group and helped organizations with their social media and content, as she is a trained copywriter.

Having retired early, she is healthy and fit, and will happily take your dogs for long walks throughout the day. You can rest assured that she is more than capable of taking care of your homes and pets.

Why I Want to House Sit

I spent more than twelve years traveling the world working on cruise ships without having the opportunity to experience what the places I visited really had to offer. Slow traveling and living like a local is helping me to do that. Caring for peoples’ houses and pets while they are away is another way. Walking dogs through neighborhoods and chatting with locals is a great way to experience what an area has to offer.

What I Bring to the Housesit?

I have spent many years of my life taking care of pets. I also maintained my own properties, even created renovation and garden projects, as I love to restore and tinker with things. I understand the importance of taking care of a property and its contents.

Over the years, there were many instances where I had to administer various types of medication to dogs and cats, track the progress of illnesses, whelped puppies, conducted and participated in training classes and trained my own dogs for dog shows. At one point I also had horses and a bird to take care of.

On previous housesits, I have had to maintain both saltwater and chlorine pools, oversee the staff and issue their wages. On more than one occasion, I have experienced hurricanes and gale-force winds and rains. I love being outdoors and working in the yard cutting grass and maintaining the garden. Homeowners always returned to happy pets and clean homes.

Currently, I am working remotely as a copywriter and web content creator and can work from anywhere at any time. I can schedule the time when I write around the day to day timetable of your pet’s activities. I can keep them on the same routine that you have them on.

“ Amazing Sitter ”

Kris was an amazing house and cat sitter for us during an extended trip to see family. She took wonderful care of our three cats and garden. And when we returned the house looked better than we had left it.  She communicated with us regularly by email and helped to handle any issue that arose quickly and responsibly. We were a little nervous since this was our first experience using an online service to find a house sitter but Kris helped to guide us through the process and was extraordinarily trustworthy. We look forward to having her here again.

“ When we arrived home, our pets were glad to see us but were totally at ease with Kris’s care. ”

From late July until early October, Kris performed a housesit at our home.  Her diligence and care allowed us to have an extended trip without any concern for the health and safety of our pets and our home, respectively.  

When we arrived home, our pets were glad to see us but were totally at ease with Kris’s care.  She took one of them to the vet’s office when a problem arose and it was easily resolved with no other issues.  

Kris’s knowledge of and experience with hurricanes came in to play but she handled all those issues equally well.  One of our appliances malfunctioned and she coordinated the repair with ease.  

We would recommend her to anyone seeking a quality housesitter.  We are most grateful for her watchful care.
