About this sitter

ABOUT ME
Hi, I am Ingrid.
2yrs ago I gained dual nationality from the UK with the USA, thus as a bonus my background checks have been indepth via; 'Homeland Security'. I live & own 2 houses in Kansas.
I am a retired refinery operator and now do screenwriting per my degrees. This allows me the time and ability to travel and experience different cities and cultures.
I have a son in NYC, so this area is always of interest to me. Other large cities on my bucket list are Boston, Seattle, Washington DC(been once, love the river & restaurants), San Francisco & other large cities that allow me to care for your home, erstwhile experiencing the art and culture of my surroundings.
Ideally my housesitting preference would be of atleast 3 weeks or more in order to make my cost of air travel worthwhile.
I have in the past looked after many houses &/or pets of my friends in the UK, Thailand, Germany, (some language skills) & now the USA. Also, whilst studying and travelling before going to university I have been a live in nanny and a part time house cleaner. Both jobs required being entrusted with access to large private homes and the care of their loved ones.
As a home owner and neat freak, I have high respect for others property and privacy. I am artsy & love galleries, museums, and anything that inspires. I am extremely reliable, logical and am adept at DIY. I do not spook easily, so should there be a basic house or pet issue, I am not going to over-react & call an emergency plumber, or overpriced vet for a paw splinter. I was trained as a medic (hazmat) and worked in the private sector & the oil industry for several yrs.
I work well with & have owned, a bird, fish tank with albino frogs, cats, dogs( I have walked or sat for most breeds, but my heart has been stolen by my two, now deceased, Great Danes), and with time spent in Texas, owned 5 horses, a cote mundi, rooster & chickens. I have also treated injuries on some wilder critters; O'Possums, squirrels, rabbits, birds & mice. I have even milked a few cows. :D
Although I am a mature person, I am young of mind, articulate and adapt easily. I am told I have a wicked sense of humour. My friends are of all age ranges, educational, social backgrounds and genders. I have green fingers and have a high appreciation for the environment. I am a non smoker but have no issue if I am around those that do.
This is a big decision to entrust a stranger with your private space & furry loved ones, so please feel free to ask me any questions that will help you feel at ease & allow you to enjoy your time away from your own home. XXX

Why they want to house sit

Although I am extremely social and have many friends, I am somewhat of a loner and love my own company. I enjoy exploring new cultures, languages and food. I have an affinty for animals so housesitting pets allows me the opportunity to discover the planet whilst having the stability of a home away from home and the companionship of beautiful creatures.

Their experience

Yes. Per my main profile piece. I am also a trained medic which in the current climate is beyond useful. I am adept with Horses, I ride ,(english) several times a week. I love all animals and most seem to love me.
I have references and repeat clients in NYC (cats) and LA (dogs) that I aquired from a similar site.

What can they bring to the assignment

Being a trained medic most injuries are treatable and syptoms of illnesses easily spotted.
In the early yrs of moving to the US I was a prison guard, thus security and handling temperamental creatures, insert laugh here, are second nature to me. I am 6ft and physically fit. Handling horses and my advanced schmoozing skills makes me at ease with all creatures. I am a pragmatist, so everything is doable.
