About this sitter

I'm a friendly, low-key writer, graphic designer, and social media manager with a love of traveling, the outdoors, animals, and new experiences. Lucky enough to work from anywhere, I frequently take advantage of that fact. I've visited, lived and/or worked in over 65 countries on all 7 continents. When I travel, I always love to get off the traditional tourist track and seek out unique adventures. I'm interested in house-sits all over the world, in rural or urban environments and everywhere in between. As long as I have an internet connection so I can work, I would consider all kinds of opportunities.

Why they want to house sit

I see house-sitting as a way to get a more everyday experience of life in a different corner of the world, take my time, achieve a more homey visit, and meet interesting souls (be they human or animal). I will take care of your home and pets with as much care and responsibility as I would my own.

Their experience

I have house and pet sat for family, friends, and neighbors for a long time and through housesitting websites the last few years. I've been a vegetarian since age 12, which began chiefly due to my love of animals. Growing up, my family always had at least 2 dogs, and at one time a true menagerie of 36 animals, including birds, ducks, mice, fish, and even a tarantula. While I travel too much to have pets of my own, I often go play with my parents' dogs and take them on walks. I've cared for other people's dogs, cats, horses, birds, and fish, including some special needs care and administering medication. The last few years, I've also periodically acted as a live-in caregiver for both of my grandmothers in their homes in Vermont and Sweden. This included companionship and help with personal care, as well as cooking meals, cleaning, grocery shopping, running errands, mail gathering, driving them to appointments, filling bird feeders, watering house plants and gardens, performing other small household maintenance tasks that came up, and arranging for a professional to take care of larger issues.

What can they bring to the assignment

I am a responsible and reliable person with experience in caring for houses, animals, and people. My history of travel, temporary and freelance jobs mean I am used to jumping in and learning all about new places and things quickly and thoroughly. I don't smoke, drink or party. I do write, read, craft, hike, ski and camp. I'd love to look after your home and animals so you can travel without worry!

There are several testimonials and references in my profile. I'm happy to provide more upon request.

Testimonials

Wonderful Sitter, for homes, plants, and pets alike

Alexandra stayed and watched our young, cuddly, male cat in Maryland. The timing worked perfectly for everyone's travel plans and though we didn't get a chance to meet in person we had consistent, reliable contact before, during, and after the stay. After almost two weeks' time away, the house was cleaner than we'd even left it, Joey and the houseplants were happy and healthy, and we were able to easily transition back to normal life. Alexandra, sitters like you are not just why interactions from this website work out, but also why the entire process works better for everyone than boarding pets, etc. Thank you for applying for and excelling in this assignment!

A wonderful house and pet sitter!

Alexandra was a wonderful apartment and cat sitter! She took excellent care of my little cat friend while I was away for a month in July. She also took care of my plants. I would highly recommend her :)
