Hi, I'm Maggie. I am a proud mother of 4 grown children. My husband and I are both self-employed. He prefers to stay home and hold down the fort while I am a practicing attorney. A couple of years ago, I opened my own practice, so I could have more flexibility to travel. I build time into my business schedule to leave town for a few weeks at a time which allows me to house sit and still keep up my practice.
I understand the importance of being able to leave your home with peace of mind. I have several fur babies of my own and know how hard it is to leave them, so I prefer to house sit with owners who are also looking for a pet sitter.
I am a mature, trustworthy individual who has managed a professional career while raising children of my own. As a working mother of four grown children I have over 25 years experience maintaining a home and have developed amazing problem solving skills. I'm also pretty handy when things need fixing.
I love all types of animals. and have experience with quite a variety of them. I have a friendly disposition and am able to establish an empathetic bond with animals quickly. I enjoy taking care of flowers, camping, crocheting & knitting, cooking and baking. I enjoy traveling, but miss my fur babies when I am on the road. House sitting allows me to see new places, meet new people, and enjoy some solitude without being isolated from our furry friends.
House sitting also allows me to see other parts of the world and help someone out at the same time.. I am quite flexible with the location of your home, but prefer remote locations, or homes that are near parks or nature walks.
My schedule is pretty flexible as long as I have some notice. While I am new to this site, I have experience as a house sitter in both urban and rural settings and am happy to provide references upon request.
I'd be happy to visit with you to make sure I am a good fit for your needs.
