Meet the brains and smiles behind TrustedHousesitters

Andy Peck

Andy Peck - Founder & Leader of the Pack / (CEO)

Andy discovered the concept of house sitting several years ago when he cared for Dave the dog in a villa with a vineyard and pool in Galicia, Spain. After falling in love with Dave and speaking with other pet owners he soon realized there was a huge need for a comprehensive house sitting website (which previously did not exist).

Since then, Andy and his fiancee / co-founder Rachel have enjoyed pet sitting across the globe. While making lots of furry friends and living like a local (house sitting is great for that) they totally understand how to provide the best house and pet sitting service for members.

Andy has also written two feature films, created a printing business, handled marketing management for several major global organizations and has enjoyed traveling around the world 4 times.

When not working Andy can usually be found paddle boarding or enjoying a game of beach volleyball.

Rachel Martin

Rachel Martin - Co-Founder & Organiser of the Pack (with a splash of Newshound) / (COO)

Having grown up with Sam the Boxer dog, Rachel relishes the opportunities pet sitting gives to look after others' pets. One of her most memorable has been caring for Alfie the Labradoodle on 5th Ave, New York, she says he made her feel like a real New Yorker (she's from the North of England!).

She's a travel nut and has visited over 40 countries but also loves nothing more than exploring more of her country, which she says house sitting has given her wonderful opportunities to enjoy.

Rachel previously managed PR campaigns for major online names such as eBay and Tesco.com as well as travel brands including the St Lucia Tourist Board.

Rachel manages operations keeping the office pack together in a winning direction and also knows how to sniff out a good news story.

When not working Rachel can often be found paddle boarding in the English Channel (by choice!), enjoying Bikram Hot Yoga or planning her impending wedding to Andy in Mexico!

Favorite House Sit - Caring for two Devon Rex cats and enjoying lots of cat kisses in Sydney, Australia.

Will Ogden

Will Ogden - Technical Geek of the Pack / (CTO)

Will joined the TrustedHousesitters.com team and immediately made everything better, slicker and faster! He's on a roll with an exciting list of jobs to do which will continue to bring you the best house sitting website in the world!

Will's a family man who loves mountain biking when he's not being handy round the house. In fact we don't think there is anything he couldn't fix or make shinier. When not working Will can also be found rustling up a BBQ - come rain or shine, we're still waiting to try his BBQ pizza(!) - or dreaming of a snowboarding trip to the Alps.

Prior to TrustedHousesitters.com Will managed a team of 11 developers in his previous job including satellite offices in South Africa and Seattle.

Favorite House Sit: Will's far too busy coding and being a new dad to house sit, but watch this space!


Lisa Logan - Customer Champion of the Pack (Customer Communications Manager)

Lisa makes sure nobody's barking up the wrong tree! We want to make sure everyone's getting the right information about what we offer and Lisa is at the heart of this. She's been an integral part of the pack since launch to help ensure we provide the best possible service to members.

Lisa and her big happy family, kids, dogs, hubby and snake, continues to grow - she's just re-homed a rescue dog called Milo from Cyprus, so fully understands the need to find sitters when she goes away. Not only does she find house sitters via the site but they all house sit too for their family vacation time. When not working, being a mum, wife and pet rescuer she can often be found digging for treasure on archaeological sites in her (limited!) spare time.

Favorite House sit:- Looking after a Christmas Tree farm, two lovely labradors and chickens with her family in Wales.


Glenise - Customer Carer of the Pack (Customer Support)

Glenise provides more help than a St Bernard on a mountain mission! She wonderfully helps manage the stream of email enquiries that arrive at our door on a daily basis.

She has been a cat owner for years and completely understands the importance of finding the right person to look after her home in Canada when she's away on vacation.

When not helping everyone else, Glenise can often be found in the great outdoors, as she enjoys time with her hiking club in the stunning Canadian backcountry.

Favorite House Sit: Looking after a 19th Century Regency home on the South Coast of England.


Angela - The Sharer of the Pack (Social Media & Customer Care)

Angela knows more about pet sitting than a dog knows about sniffing out a good bone. She has house sat across 5 continents in the last 10 years and manages to find pet and animal welfare charities to volunteer her time at too whilst on her travels and regularly uses sitters for her home in BC, Canada. She's as nutty about making new fur friends as she is about travel - hence why house sitting is her perfect ‘retirement' lifestyle! We just had to bring her out of retirement due to her super knowledge about all things house sitting.

Angela is also the genius behind our social media - if you want a dose of serious cuteness and up to date news about TrustedHousesitters.com then follow us now on Facebook. She also brilliantly helps answer customer questions both new and existing within our expanding Customer Care team
