  • Description


    Hello! We are a family of 5 living in Vernon, BC, Canada. My husband (Nathan) and I (Richelle) have 3 kids, Adrianna, Avery and Wes. I work as a Photographer and my husband works as an interior design engineer. We have 2 dogs (Charlie and Georgia). We love to do things as a family and spend as much time together as possible. We are a very active family. Skiing, hiking, camping, watching hockey games etc and of course, spending lots of time lakeside. Our guest room is located downstairs with your own bathroom for added privacy. Our home is set on a mountainside overlooking Swan Lake.

    As we are a very active, family oriented family, you would get to experience a true Canadian family experience. We live in a smaller town that is very community based with lots of things to do (Festivals, winter sports, camping, hiking, rodeos and so much more!). We also travel back and forth to Vancouver often so you would have the opertunity to travel there with us.

    With three kids and my husband and I having business's both here and in Vancouver, we are looking for someone to be with the kids, walk the dogs and do some light household tasks. We are more looking for someone who is wanting to be part of the family. The roll will not be set times each day but more of an as needed basis or just another helping set of hands.

    I spend most days at home editing, so it would be be mainly spending time with the kids, helping with their meals etc. Or staying with the kids when I leave to my photoshoots or date nights.

    Light household tasks would just be helping with dishes/laundry as your would in your own home. It won't be required daily but on an as needed basis. We need someone who can speak English well (as they will need to be able to communicate with our children), is trustworthy and good with children.

    We are looking for a female to fill this role.

    We are also happy to keep food of your request in the house. We want you to feel like part of the family :)
