  • More details about your skills

    I have worked in many jobs:
    - writing and editing documents in English
    - caring for older people and cooking their meals
    - cleaning houses and hotel rooms
    - gardening.

    And I have worked as a professional live-in house and petsitter for over eight years. I was based in Australia, but also travelled and completed housesitting assignments throughout Europe and Central America. This allowed me to live like a local in new environments. I really enjoyed trying out life in new destinations and meeting a wide range of people, to further my life experiences. As a Housesitter I met some wonderful homeowners and their pets. And the experiences I've had have been fulfilling and rewarding.

    I created my own petsitting website, which provides more information about me:

    I have also worked in a corporate environment as a Technical Writer and Proofreader, and so have excellent written English skills. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in English.

    I have intermediate to advanced computer and social media skills.

    In addition, I have experience with food preparation, cooking, cleaning and gardening.

    Also I have been learning Spanish for several years. I estimate I am roughly at an intermediate level, although my comprehension skills are better than my speaking skills.
