More information about this house sitterHello there! I am a 38 y.o full time online teacher and part time student looking to housesit and pet cuddle my way slowly around Australia! Recently I sold up, after my 16 year old rescue Husky girl passed away, I renovated a campervan and now I am hitting the road whilst juggling online work and study. I have a professional background in Massage Therapy Teaching, Small Business Management & Training and Assessing.
In terms of house sitting, I hope the following will give you more insight into my suitability:
Your Home~ I am respectful of others’ possessions, privacy and space and always make sure I leave a space as I found it. I like a clean house and tend to tidy as I go about my day. I am pedantic about locking up and closing gates - having grown up on a farm and had various occupations where this has been an everyday requirement means it is second nature.
Your Pets~ I spent my childhood on a farm and I take great joy at being in the presence of all animals and have no issues with daily chores. I have experience with horses, dogs, cats, fish, chickens, geese, ducks, pigs, goats, geese, parrots snakes, rats, beehives and guinea pigs and have looked after a motley crew of animals over the years. I am also a beekeeper (top bar). I volunteered for a number of years as a RSPCA foster carer, so I have experience with the quirks of various dog and cat breeds and I love daily walks and muck abouts as much as any high drive dog. If you have pets, count me in!
Your Gardens~ I love pottering around the garden. In the past I have kept my indoor plants alive and thriving, established and maintained outdoor veggie gardens and volunteered at community gardens. I have a good grasp and eye for what needs to be done and I would be happy to do any maintenance you request such as watering, mowing and whipper snippering.
Your House Sitter ~ If I were your house sitter you would find me easy to deal with as I have a friendly and approachable nature and I aim to communicate openly with common sense. Should you leave instructions for me, my keen attention to detail will mean they are followed to a T. I am a non smoker and I lead an active, healthy lifestyle. I like heading out for daily walks, runs or swims, visiting a cafe or market for an occasional cuppa, but mostly I’m a bit of a homebody. I will mostly be doing curriculum writing, marking and uni assignments on the laptop. I also enjoy bush walks, gardening, reading and surfing.
Your Peace of Mind~ I can update you with videos and pics of your pets whilst you are away and you are welcome to check in with me as needed. I am happy to email or text you a copy of my latest criminal check, and I can provide contacts for character/pet sitting references. You are also welcome to phone or video call me to get a sense of if I am the right person to look after your home and animal companions. Please get in touch and I will provide my contact number.
Thank you for reading my profile! Happy house sitter hunting!
