34, Remote Health Coach, Writer
I've done 6 house-sits through this site (endorsements in my profile). I've also done numerous work-exchange trips throughout the US, and within those trips I've done some house-sitting and pet-sitting. I currently live in MA.
I typically gravitate toward long-term housesits (1-3 months), as I really like to settle in to an area to get to know it.
During my house-sits I've cared for dogs (anxious rescues, purebreds, elderly), cats (indoor, outdoor, special needs), laying hens, rabbits, and reptiles. Since starting house-sitting, I've cared for a total of 14 cats and 5 dogs.
In terms of work-exchange experience, I have helped with: gardening, fencing (wire, electric), harvesting crops, chimney sweeping, house-sitting, pet-sitting, farm animal care, spreading seed, cooking, construction, demolition, landscaping, and organizing.
I live fairly minimally, and I really value a quiet environment, cleanliness, and honesty.
I work remotely 40 hours a week (M-F) for a healthcare startup, so I'd be at the house through much of the week (reliable WiFi is extremely important for me). Outside of work I enjoy writing, creating YouTube content, meditating, and playing/recording music. All these pursuits tend to keep me busy by myself throughout the week.
I've lived on 3 continents (North America, Europe, South America) and I've visited another (Africa).
Non-smoker, no pets.
