I have 24 years of experience in housesitting, petsitting, and caretaking, and I've had dogs and cats my whole life, so you can tell that I really enjoy them! I look forward to providing you with a worry-free time away from your "Home Sweet Home".
I'm seeking housesit/petsit opportunities in England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland. I visited England for two short weeks, many years ago, and have wanted to return ever since, to explore and let the country really seep into my bones. I only recently discovered that my DNA is 84% UK, so now I'm even more eager to experience the ancestral homeland!
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. I have also had home health & hospice training & experience, and could provide elder-companion services.
I am a native northern New Englander (Vermont), a "country-girl", longtime gardener, knitter, voracious reader, etc., and currently learning more in the fields of acupressure and herbalism (which I've been studying on & off over for 15 years.) I would also like to explore areas where i'm housesitting by walking, biking, and visiting local points of interest.
I will gladly provide references and my full work resume. And I'll take reliable, loving care of your home, gardens, pets and plants while you're away. I've long prided myself on leaving folk's homespace as neat & tidy as it was upon my arrival, as well as giving loving care to the pets and plants that live there.
