I am a retired physician seeking house sitting opportunities between September 2022 and March 2023.
I travel between NY and my partner's place in Santa Fe, New Mexico - about half time in each, with a flexible schedule. She is a nurse, graduated as a Psych -Mental Health Nurse Practitioner this November 2022 and would be with me part of the time that I would be housesitting.
We are non smokers, minimal drinking (2 ounces of wine once a week at dinner), no drugs, quiet - we don't party. We are conscientious with the lives and well-being of the people who come to us for assistance in our professional lives, and also with other people's property.
I presently live part-time with my 85-year-old father on his 40-acre property near Hudson, NY. I helped him build two of the houses there by hand, before we had electricity on the property in the 1980s. He still does construction work and operates heavy equipment (!), and I assist him when I am there.
I worked as an ER physician for over 25 years, and studied auto mechanics back in the day when there was room under the hood and less computerized components in vehicles, so I am able to do some minor maintenance and repairs, run tractors and fix some equipment. I am very comfortable with wood and pellet stoves, and have cleaned chimneys and replaced motors in them.
Our family has had several cats, and many dogs - mostly larger ones (German Shepherds, Collies, Lab-Shepherd mix). There is a husky and Staffordshire Terrier along with 2 cats presently on my father's property that we care for. There are also horses that a neighbor keeps there for grazing.
Camille and I presently offer events and training processes in person and online, so good internet would be a perk for us as we often teach/facilitate on Zoom.
I have a low clearance electric vehicle (Tesla Model 3). Dirt, snow or gravel are no problem, but if high vehicle clearance is needed to access your place, I would not be able to be get to your house.
Thank you for your consideration,
Bruce Nayowith MD
