About this sitter

We’re Nurit and Mark, longtime partners and avid travelers. Based in Santa Fe, New Mexico we both work as licensed health professionals, Nurit, born in Argentina, is a licensed mental health counselor and former owner of an outdoor experiential education outfit leading expeditions in the US and abroad. Nurit was director of two specialized programs at the Office of The District Attorney of Santa Fe for 22 years and a military veteran. Mark, also a veteran, is a licensed Doctor of Oriental Medicine and a published illustrator, whose background includes firefighter/paramedic, clinical specialist for the Alaska Pipeline, and emergency responder for the Space Shuttle Launch Pad at Vandenberg AFB.

We have lived together as life partners for 25 years and now reside in our 100 + year old adobe home undergoing restoration in the Historic Area of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Our grown children have left the nest creating good lives for themselves in various parts of the country and we frequently fly away from the nest as well.

Why they want to house sit

We see the house sitting orgs as a symbiotic relationship of Owners and Sitters. We are as conscientious about other peoples dear pets and possessions as we are of our own.
We know that traveling is happiness, that happiness promotes healthiness, and that this dynamic is true for sitters, owners as well as pets.
On a daily basis we enjoy hiking the mountains visible from our back door, practicing yoga, meditation, weight training, and we posses a curiosity of our environment which keeps us on the move.

Their experience

Santa Fe is a unique small town where the locals all stay in touch – We’re very active in the community and personally connected with those who make Santa Fe a wonderful place to visit or live. For the past 5 years we’ve been house-sitting and providing pet care for family, friends and clients, usually at no charge unless there are special circumstances. Until 2019 much of our sit experience has been local and word of mouth. We are now on an extended sabbatical worldwide which is why we have joined Trusted House Sitters, House Carers and have just joined My House. We are slowly compiling sit testimonials.

What can they bring to the assignment

We bring integrity to this relationship of Owner - Sitter and have found most house owners to be the same. Cleanliness, communication and thoughtfulness on both sides has made this relationship such a joy to engage in. We also expect the organization who puts us together to be professional managers of the contract. Our frequent suggestions to these organizations we hope helps to improve the whole system.
