Hi! I am a fit, active, fun-loving, and dependable person! I love to explore new places, just down the road or across the country. I enjoy meeting new people and spending time with their pets! I like to hike, kayak, swim, garden...anything to keep me outdoors and active. I also like to visit museums, farmers markets, art galleries, breweries, etc. to take in the local culture. I took early retirement from the public school system a few years back and have since been doing house and pet sitting. Some sits are only a few days, others are a few weeks or more. Sometimes the sits are just an exchange; you get a great sitter, I get a great location, maybe a car to drive, or a fridge full of food. Some sits are paid jobs. I'm good with either! I'm great with animals and good with gardens. I'll keep your place clean and safe. I can provide several references for you! I look forward to meeting you all!
Barbara was superb in all respects. I think she left the house cleaner than when we left for a week's vacation. Our Yorkies loved her too!
