How long have you been working for TrustedHousesitters?
Since the beginning — almost 10 years now!
How many sits have you completed?
I have house sat over 100 times with TrustedHousesitters — but there are loads more outside of our website too!
Do you have any pets?
Unfortunately not, I lost my beloved Springer Spaniel, Holly, 14 years ago and made a choice not to have another pet of my own. But I now share my love of animals through pet sitting.
Do you house sit on your own?
Sometimes but more often with my husband, John.
What’s been your most treasured house and pet sitting moment?
There are so many, but it’s when we return to a previous house sit and the pets obviously remember us, that’s very special.
A funny moment that always sticks with me was on an apartment sit in New York City. The home had at one time been in the Kennedy family! One day when a young and very new concierge helped me into a cab he said “Have a nice day Mrs Kennedy” I simply looked at him and said “Thank you, young man, you too”
How do you feel about being crowned ‘Community Manager’ at TrustedHousesitters?
Very proud and privileged — I have the best job in the world communicating with our amazing members. Our community is 75,000 members strong and growing every day. But none of this would exist without our most important members... the pets!
We are a community united by my three passions, Pets People and Places
