I moved to Austin, TX 20 years ago from Pittsburgh/West Virginia area. I spent the last 19 years working in the Child Support Services field. Then seven years ago I sold my house and traveled the world for a year. My travels landed me in Hawaii, Alaska, Peru, India, Thailand, Vietnam and Bali to name a few. This opened my eyes to the beauty of travel, nature and other cultures across the world. This experience has helped me to adapt well in all situations, develop thicker skin and always remain alert and aware of my surroundings.

Communication and Accountability is key, and I'm committed to provide regular updates through Pictures, emails, Skype, or phone calls, Allowing you to maintain complete trust in me as I care for your home and pets.

In addition to my professional pet sitting services, I am deeply committed to maintaining a balanced lifestyle centered around activities like yoga, meditation, and cultivating a peaceful environment. These practices enable me to approach my responsibilities with a calm and focused mindset. Given my skills, background, lifestyle, and genuine interest, I am confident in my ability to provide excellent care for your home and animals.

Angela is an absolute gem! We were so lucky to find her available to watch our elderly dog, Isabelle. She was kind, patient, thorough and communicated with us every step of the way through pictures and descriptions. Isabelle is picky with taking her meds, has leg pain and needs frequent potty breaks. Angela was a pro on all accounts, even playing her special music during scary fireworks. Isabelle took to her immediately when they met - she's got a way with dogs for sure! It was as if a maid ...

ASHLEY ( Texas, Jul 2023 - 3 weeks)
Angela, her name so appropriate, as she truly is an angel - she was absolutely wonderful with my dog and my cat, I could tell when I came back from my trip to Chile, that both my animals loved her. She had fed them their usual diet, which is no easy doing, going to the local Farmers Market and cooking organic vegetables for my dog, Olivia. With the help of record rains in Malibu Canyon and Angela's care, the garden was thriving and the house was immaculate. Angela is a very special person and ... MORE
LENA (Monte Nido California, Mar 2023 - 1 month)
Angela is a gentle, thoughtful, and very caring human being who took great care of my house and large dog. She left the place in perfect condition. It is obvious she has this process down. She suggested coming the night before I left so she could get to know Indy and get a feel for the place. This made it so much easier and less stressful for both of us. She was fun to talk with and I left feeling full confidence in her ability to take great care of my house and pet. She sent updates and photos ... MORE
DENISE ( California, Feb 2023 - 5 days)
Angela is simply the BEST. She took care of our cats like no one would. She had no problem getting our old female cat to take her medication and eat her food. Our shy male who ALWAYS hides under the bed and never allows anybody else than me and my husband to even see him was all over Angela. He slept with her on the bed!!!! She kept our house clean. Everything was tidy and in place when we returned home. I cannot recommend her enough. 1 M thank you Angela and I hope you will house sit for us ... MORE
ELISABETH ( California, Dec 2022 - 1 week 3 days)
Angela was THE best sitter we could have asked for. She took such amazing care of our furbabies and our home. Out trip away was that much more enjoyable knowing she was there for us.
SHARI ( California, Nov 2022 - 6 days)
We cannot say enough about how wonderful Angela was for the past month taking care of our fur babies and house. We travel a lot and I have never felt so comfortable knowing that she would handle anything that came up. She was a great communicator and sent regular photos and updates. And on top of all of that, she is amazing and lovely person. Already on our schedule for the next trip!
BARBARA ( California, Sep 2022 - 4 weeks)
Angela house sat for us for approximately one month and she was great! She had a house sit near us prior to our sit so we were able to meet in advance of her staying out our home - always my preference if possible. She's polite, respectful, warm, very communicative and left our house super clean and neat. She takes her job seriously and it shows! She texted often about our snarky cat and sent lots of photos of him and some of our yard. We've had a few house sitters in the past that I was ... MORE
PAULA ( California, Jun 2022 - 4 weeks)
Angela was fantastic. This is the first time I've ever used House Sitters and so I was a little apprehensive about turning over our house and our animals to a stranger. But it couldn't have worked out better. Angela loved her animals and they loved her in return. I felt totally at ease once I met her and saw her interactions with her animals. When we returned to the house was immaculate, it was hard to know that anybody was there. She was also fantastic in sending me updates while we were ... MORE
LANCE ( California, Jun 2022 - 1 week 1 day)
Angela was like an angel to us. She took such super care of our senior Lulu cat and with the house. We came home to a clean, welcoming home, and a healthy, but sad kitty, who keeps looking around for Angela to show up. Angela was easy to communicate with before, during, and at the end of her staying here. We would recommend Angela as a housesitter with absolutely no reservations. We look forward to having Angela housesit for us again!!
SELMA ( California, Apr 2022 - 1 month 1 week)
Angela was a delight. We felt absolutely confident and safe having her house sit our home and three cats. We were able to spend an afternoon prior to leaving to show her around the place and introduce her to Buddy, Lulu and Spanky, plus get to know Angela. She sent regular updates and photos of the cats. We returned to a clean home and happy cats. I highly recommend Angela as a very competent and thoughtful house sitter. I will definitely see if she is available next time we travel. ... MORE
JANICE ( California, Apr 2022 - 2 weeks 6 days)
Angela was amazing. With all of this COVID madness we met virtually and instantly we knew she would be a great fit for our furry friends Gizmo and Peeps. Angela has this great energy and was very easy going. She kept in constant contact. She left our home the same exact way it was when we left. We highly recommend her. Would love to have her back in June/July. Fingers crossed
OMAR ( California, Mar 2022 - 1 week 1 day)
Angela is an amazing housesitter and I hope she can sit for us again. She is super responsible, a great communicator and took fantastic care of the house, yard, and houseplants. We had some freezes and she went the extra mile to make sure our plants were protected. She was willing to take care of anything that was requested of her and went over and above what we had asked of her.
JANICE ( California, Jan 2022 - 4 weeks)
Angela was amazing!! She went above and beyond all my expectations. My pets were well cared for and she followed all my instructions. Angela had to care for my senior dog on walks. She was able to calm her during the fireworks and thunderstorms. The three cats loved her care and attention. When I returned Angela had washed the sheets and towels and done some grocery shopping for me. It was so nice to return from vacation to a clean house. Angela gave me daily updates and pictures of my ... MORE
SANDRA (Austin Texas, Jun 2021 - 2 weeks 3 days)
No rating We feel like we made a new friend! Angela was so thoughtful, attentive and clearly loves animals! She sent photos of our pets while we were away and our house was immaculate when we returned. This was our first time using HouseSitters of America and Angela set a 'high bar' for expectations and open communications. Our pets were so happy when we returned! You and your pets would be lucky to have Angela in your home, we cant recommend her enough!
KATHLEEN ( California, Jan 2020)
No rating Angela was a great house and pet sitter. She took amazing care of my critters and my home/. My house was cleaner when I got back than when I left. Angela is definitely someone I will seek out for future sitting, and is welcome in my home any time. I can not recommend her enough.
KALI ( California, Dec 2018 - 2 weeks)
No rating Angela housesat for me last year. She was very professional and took great care of my kitty, Charmmy. She was very responsive in her communication and I felt comfortable in my home taking care of my kitty. She was very attentive to my kitty and communicated to me her concern about the cat. I'd definitely recommend Angela.
ANNIKA ( Washington, Apr 2018 - 1 week 2 days)
No rating Angela was really wonderful with our animals! Such a comfort to know she was there, keeping an eye on our sweet old dog. She kept in touch to let us know how everyone was doing, and was totally understanding about us having to come home early from our trip. I would highly recommend Angela!
JAMES ( Oregon, Mar 2018 - 1 week 2 days)
No rating I am very grateful to Angela, who did an excellent job taking care of my home and loved ones (two cats) while I was away (I think one of them in particular still misses her!). Angela is caring and considerate. I would definitely have her sit for us again in the future. Thank you!!
MARILYN ( California, Feb 2018 - 6 days)
No rating Angela has been a great house sitter. She has taken care of our house and pets on 2 occasions and will be coming back a 3rd time. She takes wonderful care of our house and pets. They love her! You can't ask for a better house sitter
MARYA ( California, Jan 2018 - 1 week)
No rating YES! YES! YES! The VERY BEST experience! Angela loved my animals as her own. She followed my care instructions to the smallest detail. She cared for my house as though it were her own. She even emailed me photos of my animals and described their behavior in my absence. Upon my return, my house looked as if the cleaning lady had just left. Anyone who enters into an agreement with Angela is very lucky. I would love to have her back. My beloved dog would gladly have gotten in Angela's ... MORE
SYLVIE ( New Mexico, May 2017 - 5 days)
No rating Angela is amazing! I returned home from a 16 day trip to find my home in tip top shape. Everything was spotless. My plants were well cared for as well as other household chores done to perfection. My kitty was loved by Angela. Angela has a great spirit and anyone would be so lucky to have her care for their home and pets.
ANNE (Rockport Texas, Apr 2017 - 2 weeks 2 days)
No rating I highly recommend Angela! She not only took wonderful care of my dog...she loved her. I came home to a spotless, beautifully cared-for home and a happy, healthy, in-love-with-Angela (and adored by me), Bailey dog! Neighbors have told me how wonderful Angela she walked Bailey all the time, and how she clearly loved Bailey. Angela kept in touch with me during my time away, sent me photos of Bailey and alerted me to important mail. I hope I can be lucky enough to have her house-sit for ... MORE
