I have 24 years of experience in housesitting, and more than 12 years caring for other folks' pets, and I've loved having my own dogs and cats all my life.
I look forward to providing you with a worry-free time away from your "Home Sweet Home". Most of the families I sit for are clients I've had for many years, and it's like having an extended family of pets, basically.
I would love petsitting/housesitting opportunities in the UK! I visited briefly once, many years ago, and have wanted to return ever since. I only recently discovered that my DNA is 84% UK (mostly England & Scotland) so I'm even more eager to visit again!
I'm extremely responsible, hard working and experienced at a wide variety of indoor/outdoor work, including gardens, grounds, pets, errands, housekeeping and cooking. During my work life, I had jobs in business, academia, and not-for-profits, as well as home health/hospice training & elder-companion experience. I am also a knitter, voracious reader and currently studying in the area of integrative health. I have posted references and my full work resume.
I'll take loving care of your home, gardens, pets and plants while you're away. I take pride in giving great care to the pets and plants in your homespace, and leaving it neat & tidy. I would also enjoy exploring areas near where i'm housesitting, such as walks, and local points of interest.
I look forward to hearing from you and hope that we find a match with what you're expecting in a petsitter.
