I'm so excited to be on this site as a house and pet sitter, and am so happy you are reading my ad!
Let me tell you a little about myself ... I would love to help you. I have always loved traveling and experiencing new areas and people. When I was little, I took home every stray I found. I was always building a new fort. I also always wanted to learn everything my dad was doing as well, which ended up including welding and flying! When I became an adult (using the term loosely) I loved buying houses, living in them for a while, fixing them up, and then reselling them.
I've owned my fair share of feathered, furred, and scaled creatures, but now I borrow other people's pets as I travel and explore. Overall, my love of life has pushed me out of the money making corporate (academic) cubicle world, and into life! I am no longer interested in accumulating material things and security, but would rather invest my resources into experiences. I have lived in Wisconsin, Florida, Texas, and Colorado. I have traveled to Ireland, Italy, Spain, Belize, Guatemala, Canada, Puerto Rico, and have visited Michigan, California, Washington, Montana, Hawaii, and more. I am thirsty for more of this exploration!
For you ... I would love to take conscientious care of your pets, and maintain your home. I have experience with fish, turtles, hamsters, gerbils, birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, cats, dogs, miniature goats, llamas, and horses. I have extensive experience with entry-level home repair and maintenance including deck building, siding, roofing, tiling, fencing, minor electrical and plumbing, painting, washer and dryer installation, replacing door knobs, and more. Having owned several homes, and being a rental property owner, I understand and wholly respect the implications of owning and maintaining a property. I understand the financial implications of "small" things like a leaking pipe or a broken tile. I fully comprehend taking care of something when it is a nuisance, before it becomes a major project.
All this being said, I will provide for you the utmost of care with the utmost of respect. I will be mindful of your personal space and personal preferences. You can depend on me. You can depend on my honesty, integrity, and strong personal ethics.
I am a non-drinker, non-smoker, and non-drugger. I eat primarily a raw, organic, vegan diet. My time is spent doing yoga, meditating, hiking, and eating good food! I have a Masters Degree in Human Development (not that it matters here :) I love to join local meet-ups wherever I go, so that I get a chance to participate with like-minded people in the community I'm visiting.
