More InformationI am a passionate, hardworking and kind person who isn't afraid to rise up to the challenges that life may throw my way. I have always wanted more out of life than the normal expectations and that is why I have traveled the world for the past 8 years. I chose a life filled with wonder, discovery and endless life lessons. While most of my friends were getting married and creating families, I was roaming through the far corners of the world, learning about yoga, spirituality, people and of course, about myself.
I have loved animals since I was little when I was growing up in Lithuania, where my grandfather had a farm with all sorts of farm animals as well as dogs and cats. I could be having the worst day ever but when a dog would walk up to me on the street and wag his tail, instant relief would flood over me and all would be right again. I would love to have my own dog and a cat but without staying in one place for too long, it wouldn’t be fair for the animals as well as it would be very difficult for me to take care of them. So having to watch over someone’s pets for a short term arrangement would be absolutely amazing for me because it would give me the opportunity to give love to an animal while receiving the beautiful energy and love that they give back to us when we interact.
I moved from Lithuania to America after winning the green card fifteen years ago which was the perfect opportunity for a better life and to follow my passion of discovery and adventure. After finishing university and working as a personal trainer as well as an events manager, I took off on my first journey on my own to Europe. The rest was history as I fell in love with seeing the world, experiencing different cultures and learning more and more about how to become the best version of myself and discovering how my talents can benefit those around me. That is the reason why fitness, meditation and healthy living has become such a huge part of my life and I continued to gravitate towards those types of opportunities more and more. Ideally, I am working on creating an all-around facility which would focus on general well-being, spirituality, meditation, nutrition and exercise. I am collecting ideas and inspiration through my travels in order to bring this plan to fruition.
I am a reliable and trustworthy person who has strong values and believes in being compassionate to others and only treating people with the same kindness and respect that I would like to be treated with. I have volunteered with various organizations throughout the world which taught me so much about appreciating what I have and how much of a difference one person can make even with just a little bit of effort. I have participated in various work exchange opportunities where I watched over the family’s home as well as their animals. Some have been in very rural areas and farms and some have been in central city location. The feedback from my hosts has always been glowing and everyone was left happy and appreciative of the work I have done for them. I will happily provide references if desired from previous positions and work exchange opportunities.
I am an avid gardener and absolutely love spending time outside, mucking around in the garden or just enjoying a quiet afternoon with a good book and a cup of tea in the sun. I am an early riser and love starting my day with some yoga and a walk outside, which would be perfect for taking your pets out for a walk. I have come to Australia with a working holiday visa which allowed me to enjoy this beautiful country for one year. While working as a freelance writer and copywriter for a company in London, I am able to take my work with me while supplementing that income with providing fitness and yoga training to people. Now I have been in Australia for almost two years and am currently in the process of obtaining my residency.
I believe that honesty is the best policy when it comes to communication and life in general. I practice what I preach and I will be the first one to admit if I am at fault or if something is wrong. You can expect the same from me when it comes to taking care of your pet companions as well as your home. I carry myself in a way that I could build and keep the connections I make with people in my life, which means that I will go above and beyond to be respectful, caring and loving. I am a very simple and happy person generally and will always find a way to overcome any problems or disagreements that may happen along the way.
I started playing guitar couple years ago and since then have gotten into writing my own songs and also performing at open mic nights in order to get more comfortable and to share my gifts with others. I have always admired people who were able to bring everyone together because of their music so now I am very happy to be able to share that with others as well.
Please don’t hesitate to ask me any questions or address any concerns. I look forward to hearing from you.
