Ready, Willing & Able
During my housesits, I treat your home as if it were my own. I have years of experience in maintaining a home, caring for gardens, and caring for animals. I'm also resourceful and handy with minor repairs. If one isn't provided, I like to establish a cleaning and care routine to maintain the property. I use as few areas as possible and thoroughly sanitize any areas I do use.
Recent empty nester and semi-retired after 17 years in civil service. Growing up, living and working on a 50+ acre farm gave me a respect for hard work and a love for animals. My only child is now serving our country, and while growing up and raising her I have cared for cats, dogs, horses, turtles, fish, and birds, large and small. (For a time, my family had ostriches and emus and our favorite dogs were Great Danes and Dobermans) Some our own, some rescued, and some fostered until rehomed.
I am a very private person, very reliable, and trustworthy. I've done several sits through House Sitters America and another site.
