I am a Retired Widow with Fernweh – Responsible, Experienced and will take GREAT care of your home and LOVE your pets!
I have been housesitting full time for 6+ years. Yes, going from one wonderful sit to the next while caring for the best pets and homes. It has been such a joy to experience so many different personalities, the pets and homeowners! That makes housesitting so enjoyable for me. My sits began locally while still working (and in the US using vacation time) I have retired now and started sitting internationally. It has always been a longing to learn about other cultures, their beliefs and their way of life.
I enjoy hiking and just being outdoors, so when I can walk a dog (or cat, yes there are some that walk on a lease) it is a great way to become familiar with the surroundings and meeting people while maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Housesitting gives me a purpose in my life to care, love and nature the pets and looking after your home. It is a gift to be able to give back a peace of mind that your pets were well cared for while you are away. It is my way of being of service to others. When you are given an opportunity to travel, be with family or need time away for health issues you need to have peace of mind and focus on your time away and I will provide that peace. My favorite days of the sit are day one, excitement and anticipation of connecting to the pets and the last day preparing to surprise the homeowners with healthy and happy pets as well as a clean, tidy and well cared for home. My priority is always the pets and home!
- I have cared for dogs of many different breeds with many different needs and many different personalities.
- I have cared for indoor and outdoor cats with all their temperaments!
- Horses, sheep, goats, chickens and pigs
- Birds, fish and turtles
Running a house that was completely remodeled by my husband and I, Wow how much fun was that working together, so I am familiar with plumbing, electric, gas, etc.
We had a pool so I am very familiar with the regular maintenance and workings.
I have worked as a personal assistant taking care of the household for a million dollar home, ranch, and coordinating staff and four children’s schedules. Most recently I worked for a major financial investment company as a Senior Office Administrator responsible for over 300 clients as well as a Financial Advisor who was the Regional Leader for 40+ advisors. (my background check is through that company as I am still employed as an on-call to maintain a few benefits!)
I am in excellent health and hope to maintain my health as well as a Non smoker
Some of my habits include: Efficient, Reliable, Organized, Neat & Tidy, Independent, strong and courageous (as I have been told)
Communication is so important to me, I will text you and send pics so you know that all is well!
