  • Description

    Hi there!

    My name is Hilary and I'm a 43-year-old American from Massachusetts. I'm very friendly and outgoing and love adventures, nature, animals, and meeting new people.

    For the past three years I’ve been a landscaper/gardener on Cape Cod. I'm also an artist (www.hilaryemersonlay.com) and children's book author ("Art Sparks: Draw, Make, Paint, and Get Creative with 53 Amazing Projects!"), and for 7 years I was the Assistant Director of a children's summer art camp.

    I have over 18 years experience in retail management (an indie bookstore and then a bakery). I'm responsible and an extremely hard worker while also being fun, laid-back, and easy to work alongside...I enjoy making people smile! I've also been a part-time house and pet-sitter for over 15 years and have experience working with all sorts of animals.

  • More details about your skills

    I'm great with animals and kids. I grew up with a lot of pets, have done extensive pet-sitting, and was a hedgehog foster mom for a number of years. I also helped to run an art camp for children ages 6-12 and have taught privately as well as at an after-school program.

    I have a working knowledge of website building (hilaryemersonlay.com and buboarts.org) and am generally good with computers, especially Macs. I've done a lot of event management in the past.
