Why I want to house sit:
I love to travel and learn about new places , cultures and
cuisines- -- house sitting is a perfect way to do that. My children
are grown, so I have the freedom to travel.
I am a mature, positive, responsible, quiet and independent
woman. I grew up in the “World” as my dad was career USAF! I'm
open to most locations. I'm self-employed, as a home based
Travel agent. Also I love to cook, have a food blog and videos on
making soups and delicous food. Most of the last 30 years I have been in Prince William
County (Manassas area) of VA as an active member of the business community, the local Chamber of Commerce and charitable organizations. I am a retired Mary Kay Senior Director. Both of my parents were from PA-(Philly-Sunbury-Hamburg), so I have lots of family in PA and NJ. I am a mom of 2 daughters and Nanny to 3 granddaughters.
Previously, I have lived in:
MI, NY, PA, GA, ME, MD and VA, Also lived in Japan as a kid.
I'm looking for opportunities to see more of the world through
house-sitting. Just about any location is welcome!
Previously, I house sat for my friends mother's home when she had to move out of it. They did not want the house to stay vacant. Then for a wonderful couple in Warrenton VA several times this year for their "boys" -a kitty and dog. Was also in NC to care for a very nice gentleman's 3 kitty's this spring. For a month I sat for Drake, a standard poodle, in Arlington VA.
Why I'm a great house sitter:
- I love pets and miss having my own! I have had dogs and bird. I
also have had a cat that tolerated me. I'll give your pets all the
love and attention they need!
- I've leased *many* apartments, and while I recognize leasing is
not the same as house- sitting, it does require you to take care of
someone else's property while you're there. I also owned several
homes, so I understand how crucial it is for a tenant (or
house-sitter!) to care for the property.
Your home will be well taken care of by me. I will treat it with the love and respect it is due.
- I'm a quick learner and eager to learn new things -- anything
you need me to take care of that I don't already have experience in,
I'll find a way to learn how to do it!
- I'm a non-smoker.
I will be happy to provide personal and business references as
I hope you will allow me to care for your home when you are away.
Have a great day!
