Hello! I am an early to bed and early to rise-type of person. I appreciate 1) keeping my surroundings tidy and clean, 2) all types of furry friends, and 3) delicious coffee in the mornings. I grew up on a dairy farm in Vermont where we raised chickens, birthed calves, and considered our two dogs (a golden retriever and Japanese chen/maltese) to be family. I now work as a physician and support my mom, who is disabled. House and pet sitting allows me to fulfill an inherent desire to caretake while reducing my own expenses and introducing me to new communities and ways of living. I believe there is a certain sanctity that comes with one's personal space. I would be honored and grateful for the opportunity to care for your space and your fur babies during your absence! Please reach out to me with any questions at all!
My day job is very fulfilling. I work Mon-Fri from 9a-5p for the county of Santa Clara as a primary care doctor for unstably housed people. I love my job, but I have a lot of time outside of work to be involved at home. For the past 8 years, I have been serving as the primary care taker for my mother, who has a neurodegenerative disease and no longer walks. At the end of April 2021, however, my lease is ending and my mom will be moving in with my father in senior housing!
This is the first opportunity for many years that I have had to live on my own and in a style and fashion of my choosing. I have always wanted to house sit because 1) I LOVE animals, in particular, and haven't had the bandwidth yet to get my own dog or cat, 2) it will allow me to save money I would otherwise put towards rent, 3) it will expose me to others' way of life, 4) I'll have opportunity to explore new neighborhoods, and 5) caretaking affords me meaning and purpose.
I am looking for opportunities to pet or house sit in the Bay area for a relatively longer commitment, where I can build a relationship of sorts with your animals (if present) and settle into a pattern of caring for the house each day. My elderly parents, who now will have their own in-home care, will still be living nearby, so I can visit from time to time.
I am a lifelong renter and caretaker! I have maintained my own apartments (with many plants and fish) and employed part-time in-home care for my mom for the past 8 years. This will be my first experience as a formal employee house sitting for someone else, but I am confident in my skills and level of responsibility. I just need my first client to take a chance on me!
I will be bringing:
- respect for your space,
- a penchant for cleanliness,
- honest and open communication,
- organization (personally and professionally),
- quiet, low maintenance way of living
