Greetings! I recently retired after 40 years service with the U.S. Department of Defense. I love people, animals, and travel and I am honest, responsible, outgoing, independent, flexible and caring. I love exploring new places especially when art, theatre, music, architecture or nature are involved I've loved animals as long as I can remember --my earliest childhood memories involve raising an injured baby pig on a bottle and raising a baby rooster the neighbor's children no longer wanted. I've found that I can be intuitive with animals. In the past couple of years, on two occasions, I've been able to alert friends that their cats were behaving oddly such that they got them prompt medical care. I grew up on a farm where I helped raise our dogs, pigs, and goats. I've successfully cared for the pets of fami... read more
I am a freelance international commercial photographer/writer/artist who lives in Asheville, North Carolina- to be close to my darling grand-daughter and I have a wee little studio in a historic little village in Virginia.As a photographer/artist/nature/animal gal I appreciate & look for opportunities on land to care for property, get my hands in the earth & snuggle pets of all kinds....locally & in all areas of the world! I have owned/loved and trained horses/chickens/dogs and of course kitties (meds not a problem-I'm a bit partial to geriatrics). No doubt your animals will be beautifully photographed. I can wear many hats from splitting wood-gardening-preserving-shoveling snow! (I am a Hemingway character as I perform with grace under pressure � thus I don't panic-I just take sensible & confident action) I love nature-cultures, people, quiet, and appreciate WI-FI....as I mentor other photographers on-line & write.I have great animal/prop... read more

Hi, I am a mother of 7 boys and 1 girl. Of which only 2 are left in my house. I have 30 years as a caretaker, mother, chauffeur, cook, cleaner, gardener, teacher and pet care taker. I believe myself to be highly experienced and educated. I currently switched from taking care of kids to pets and am one of the Top pet sitters with Rover.Com in the Hampton Roads Area of Virginia. But, I am ready to travel and experience different places and cultures. My life has been fulfilling but after my bout with Breast Cancer I realized I need to do what I love and that is travel. I am trustworthy and I know you would like me/my family and I promise that your home/pets would be in the best of hands! Right now, until they graduate-we are a package deal but my children are just as invested in helping and experiencing the world. If you need a loving, adventurous, responsible family to care for your home we would LOVE the opportunity. Prefer and dream of long term. read more
Hi there! My name is Wanda Barquin. I am a former U.S. diplomat, born in Argentina. I love animals and I recently retired. I decided to house sit while waiting to get hold of all my earthly belongings from my last overseas assignment. I am a responsible and loving dog owner, who is now traveling with her three well-behaved pooches. I would love to look after your place and/or animals, if you need help. They are a joy and I now have more time to take care of furry ones. I now live in Virginia, where my young one-eye Airedale Terrier is being trained. I would appreciate the opportunity to provide house sitting services for your home/beloved pets. I hope we have the chance to chat soon! Best, Wanda read more
My family is small--my husband, Jack, myself and our young adult daughter, Emma, who now lives in Philadelphia. We all love to travel, but most times, it is just my husband and I. The world can seem crazy, but the antidote to any prejudice is travel. We like to meet and understand people, try new foods and get to know other parts of the world other than our own. I like to cook, love history and photography. My husband is woodworker and sports enthusiast. I am a former Girl Scout leader (Outstanding Leader Award, City of Alexandria Citizenship Awards and Star Volunteer Award from the Del Ray Business Association), and have had U.S. safety background checks for U.S. Public schools. We are both good with plants; Jack worked at a landscaping job years ago during college and prides himself on keeping a tidy yard. I love my garden, and work well with vegetables, flowers, and herbs. I have happily grown heirloom tomatoes saved from my Grandfather's seeds. We are ... read more
