About this sitter

Hi. I'm Kate. I'm 39 years young and a long time home, animal and family care taker. I have over 15 years of experience in house sitting and excellent references. I have a BA in Business Management and a MA in Medicine as a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist. I'm seeking house sitting opportunities because I love to travel and I enjoy taking care of homes, animals and plants. I have worked and traveled to more than 15 countries throughout Asia, Europe, South America and Africa since 2005.

I am a non-smoker, have a clean background, and do not make strong smelling foods (eg curry).

I'm happy to schedule a FaceTime or Skype video call prior to any commitments.

A bit of history:
I began working in the hospitality industry in 2002 within a large hotel chain within the sales and marketing department. After a few years, I decided to travel more extensively and work abroad as a teacher and for a brief moment, a youth tour guide. While in the US, I took jobs as a housekeeper, personal chef, pet sitter, home sitter, childcare giver, landscaper and eventually estate management, where I was responsible for two estates and the runnings of each property. I've taken care of domestic and farm animals, gardens, landscapes and private yachts. I take pride in keeping my surroundings clean and looking beautiful.

I currently have two small children, aged 4 and 2 years of age. I'm excited to travel and home sit with them as they get to experience life and learn about the world around them in a very unique way. They both have experience growing up around animals and are very loving and respectful to them. My husband works in the corporate world and travels 70% of the time.

I'm an Air Force kid. I was born in Tokyo, Japan, my roots originate from Ohio, I grew up in Arizona and my home base is in Portland, Oregon, where I've lived for the past 10 years.

I enjoy creating and crafting. I'm learning how to play the ukulele and have sung since I could talk.

I have had numerous background checks and it's always clear. I have to have a current one to keep my acupuncture license in the state of Oregon.

I'm an energy conscious individual with electricity and water, so not to worry about having a larger than normal utility bill.


Thank you for reading my profile and I look forward to hearing from you!

Why they want to house sit

I currently have two small children, aged 4 and 2 years of age. I'm excited to travel and home sit/ pet sit with them as they get to experience life and learn about the world around them in a very unique way. My husband travels for work 70% of the time and so I have a lot of free time and flexibility at the moment. I love visiting new places and being a care giver.
