  • Description

    After years of teaching, in various venues, I have spent the last several school years teaching the Psychology of Happiness to Study Abroad students in Orvieto, Italy. I love to be of service caring for land, animals, plants, properties, and fellow humans. I value simplicity, adaptability, and nature. An adventurous traveler, I can independently amuse myself and am very good natured.

  • What skills do you have?

    I have done extensive house and pet-sitting for many years, usually as a favor to friends. I possess a special knack for connecting with animals of all kinds - having owned dogs, cats, goats, rabbits, guinea pigs, and provided care for turtles, horses, and birds. I have helped remodel distressed properties and helped construct straw bale and rastra block structures. I have done extensive landscaping and gardening, and enjoy physical labor. I bring a mature, responsible practicality, along with an open attitude; physical strength, and honest communication. I value simplicity, resourcefulness, and respect for the earth. I am passionate about making music, art, healthy food, practicing yoga, hiking, biking, meditation, and learning. I am certified to teach Hatha and Kundalini Yoga, and long ago completed a Cambridge English Language Teaching course. I am a nurturing person by nature, and am committed to being of service.

  • Age


  • What else ...

    I love to see new places, meet new people, and discover new cultures. Rather than simply being a tourist, I prefer to immerse myself in places, as time allows. I am grateful if I can beautify the places and enrich the beings around me, and I have the vitality and resources to be a dependable and creative caretaker. I embody a sense of community and connection most anywhere I may be.
