About Kelsey Young:

My partner, Kelly Elias, and I make a fantastic house sitting team. I am a full-time PhD student in geography through Syracuse University, and I prefer to work and study from home. Kelly is studying full-time for his teaching license in special education. He also works as a paraprofessional for a public school in the metro, and he owns a small lawn care business. 


We have been house sitting full time since June 2018 for a variety of clients. During this time we've cared for a number of dogs, cats, and even a cockatiel. Our current housekeeping responsibilities involve maintaining a manicured lawn.

We are looking for either short or long-term house sitting opportunities in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area beginning July 12, 2019. 

We are quiet, contemplative people who will take pride in caring for your home, your pets, your plants, and your property while you are away.
