About this sitter

I'm looking to house-sit/ pet-sit on the north side of Chicago. Ideally near Lincoln Square/Ravenswood. I've been a Chicago Public Schools librarian for the last 18 years. With the recent hot real estate market, I decided to sell my condo and look for another home. Unfortunately, I haven't found the *perfect* home for me yet, so I have flexibility right now to house sit for you!

Why they want to house sit

I've had terrific house sitters in my condo over the last 10 years. I travel each summer and had an elderly cat who needed a house sitter. I've had such great experiences and I love that it's a win-win for both the owner and the sitter. I'd love to try the other side of house sitting now that I have the flexibility!

Their experience

I've been house-sitting, pet-sitting, and babysitting since I was 12! I've taken care of a range of animals and many, many plants, but mostly for relatives and family friends. I've never had an official house-sit through an agency. I'm happy to come to visit, interview, and make sure it's the right fit for you.

What can they bring to the assignment

I'm a librarian-- I like things organized and clean, and I'm happiest when everything is in its place. :) I also really enjoy both animals and plants. This is the first time in 44 years that I'm without a pet, and I have work experience in plant nurseries and landscaping. I'm a problem solver. I like learning new things. I'm also a great communicator. I feel these skills are all important in house sitting and I hope you agree!
