Hello! I've been a member of Housecarers since 2003, and I continue to be grateful for all the amazing opportunities in many parts of the USA. I approach each position with my best intentions. Clients find me to be very reliable and trustworthy in my care of their animals and homes, to which the uploaded recommendations attest. I have additional references not listed on this site- both through other housesitting sites and private clients.
As a yoga instructor and former ballet dancer, I am physically active - and welcome a leash or two in hand on my daily walks. Affection builds naturally (both ways) for the animals under my care; and I've taken care of elderly cats (18, 19, 20 and 21 years) with ease in 3 different households. It might be worth noting that I revived my Bethesda client's fading orchids during a ten month stay : ) Always a non-smoker.
I've been staying predominantly on east coast for the last two years to be in closer proximity to my voice coach in Manhattan.... as I take steps toward a career in voice acting.
It's been a difficult journey for many of us since March. I isolated with family in WY and CO this spring/summer. During a recent housesit in WashDC, I got tested for Covid every 2 weeks- and all 4 results were negative. I'm now staying at a friend's home in UES/UWS of NYC; and I'm available for dog walking (for fee) at least until end of April.
I choose to provide contact info for my references after intial communication with prospective clients. Please feel free to send me questions for more details.
