House Sitter in Show Low

Last Labor Day I completed my first ocean swim, the 86th Annual Oceanside Pier Swim! A lap swimmer for nearly 40 years, an open water swim was on my bucket list, so I went for it! A 63 years old Arizonan, swimmer, jogger, cyclist, hiker/backpacker and novice kayak enthusiast. Best 10 years of my work-life I taught art to K-12 students (loved 7th graders) and most recently retired from 10 years in academia. I am employed part-time by the US Dept. of Veterans Affairs as a Fiduciary/Federal Payee and volunteer 15 hours a week to Northern AZ University's Civic Service Institute as a Senior Companion. Originally from Illinois, I moved to S AZ in 1988, lived in Fairbanks, Alaska 1984-85 (outstanding adventure) and now live in the White Mountains of AZ, a beautiful and active place to escape the desert heat. Interesting tidbits: worked at the Circle Z Guest Ranch, Patagonia, AZ; Sequoia National Park for a summer to hike the Sierras; animal lover; as an advocate for consumers of behavioral and mental health services,former seat/secretary on the Board of Directors, NAZCARE, Inc., committee member of N AZ Regional Behavioral Health Authority, member of AZ Office of Individual and Family Affairs. Formerly appointed to the Univ. of Arizona's Commission on the Status of Women; in 2001 completed an AZ Dept. of Transportation Pre-Apprenticeship Program in Highway-Related Construction Trades, eventually being offered the job to manage the program; experience with house and pet sitting. Most importantly, I am trustworthy and believe the best years of my life are still on the horizon, 'the world is my oyster'. I fell in love with the Oceanside/Carlsbad areas and want to spend more time there in conjunction with my 2nd pier swim in 2016. Had I gone to college in S CA I would have been the quintessential hippy, still love tie dye! References upon request. Please feel free to email me at as an initial contact to discuss the potential positive, respectful contribution I may make as your house sitter. Truly, Deborah
