House sitter in New Smyrna Beach, Florida

Hello, thank you for looking at my profile. I hope we can mutually benefit each other. I am almost 60 years old, retired from a professional 26 years firefighter and paramedic career. I worked locally in my town and have been very involved with my community for over 40 years. I am married for 38 years and my husband runs his own business. As a traveler , myself....I have also worried about my pets. We have always had atleast 1 dog and 1 cat in our home. But because I'm in Florida , on the river and 1 block from the ocean, I've had family who always are ready to come visit and take care of our pets. We have been very fortunate. Our dog usually travels with us when we go to our second home in the islands. After finishing the construction of our second home in the Bahamas, I have decided I would like to do some traveling. I've been to New Zealand twice, Costa Rica X3 and Bahamas too many time to list. I also went to Europe in the 1980s! I'm excited to start traveling again. Since my husband is still working, he is comfortable taking care of our pets and home while I pursue this next chapter in my life. I would like to house sit and care for your pets while you travel. I have taken care of many friends pets while their away traveling. As I said I have always had pets. I believe they ( pets ) are more like family than belongings. I keep mine happy with walks, playtime, proper nutrition and health care and believe pets should be kept clean. I've delivered every kind of medication you can think of....injections, pills, creams and ear and eye drops. I am comfortable around most animals except snakes. Just. Don't like them! Fish tank are ok, we've had those too. So I can follow direction for their care if you have them in our home. I prefer postions where I am in a safe community ( crime -wise ). The neighbors are nice.. Because of my situation, I am willing to travel to other states , even countries to pursue this opportunity. I am financially secure. If I fly into a state or country, we can discuss pick ups or car rental needs. I'm fine with a bike for local transportation if available. I like to read, take walks, kayak, swim, do puzzles, play cards and garden. I also paint , make seaglass light catchers and other crafty things. I also love music and am learning to play the ukulele. I do not smoke cigarettes..but I do like a cold beer or glass of wine occasionally. Just being honest. I'm in good health, no medication required. Because of my career, I have been fingerprinted for the state of Florida as required to be a professional firefighter and or paramedic. I'm very organized. I have done the following as part of my job description during career. CPR and first aid instructor, elementary and pre K school teacher, Union treasurer and secretary for many years. I was an officer, Leiuteneant and PIO, which is Public Information Officer handling newspaper and television during fire emergencies. I conducted job interviews and back ground checksfor the FD. I have headed many fund raiser events in the fire service and our community and church. After retirement , I took care of a couple elderly friends, their pets and finances who had no family. I am a trustee for one of these. I am very honest and proud that I have a very good reputation from both career and community. But now I want to spread out from this area and travel, while assisting those who require a trustworthy person to house sit or house/pet sit while you are away from your home. I enjoy solitude if your home is in back country area. I do not need people to be happy. As weird as that may sound, I like to be alone. Preferably in a comfortable setting with lots of nature near by. So lastly, I am looking for a position for the month of October 2017. I would like to find a month long position, but will consider 2-3 weeks assignment. This will be determined by your location. If within a couple states from Florida, would consider 1-2 week assignments and I can drive there. Let's get together and discuss your needs and if I am the right person for them. I'm looking forward to this journey. You only live once so you should enjoy your blessing and always be kind to others less fortunate. I have be described as a " giver". Let me give you, the peace of mind required to enjoy your vacation time knowing someone will love your pets and/ or manage your home without you worrying about it. Ive been in that situation, so let me help. I'm sure I can fill your needs. Thank you again for looking at my profile, and God Bless.
