30, Recruitment consultant and personal trainer
I am working for myself as a recruitment consultant in technology building a business that also incorporates employee wellbeing and environmental sustainability as they are passions of mine. I am also a personal trainer as I am super passionate about health and fitness. Recently I've decided to move into van life to lessen my impact on the environment and free myself up to explore the country I live in and be more mobile to do that.
I decided house sitting would be a great way to help others whilst allowing me my animal fix as I'm a huge animal lover.
Having the van means I can't have any of my own pets for the time being so I thought house sitting would be the perfect compromise. I grew up with dogs and cats all my life. We had giant schnauzers so I am used to big dogs that need a lot of walking and attention but we also had a standard schnauzer and so love a cuddly smaller dog too. My last rental in Auckland was with a husky crossed with a border collie and I would take him for walks and help look after him. My grandma had cats so used to have cats around as well and love them! Definitely an animal lover.
I know how daunting it must be to trust a stranger to look after your home and loved ones so I can promise to keep you reassured of their wellbeing whilst you're away and communicate as and when you would like!
I am someone that loves a simple and quiet life that allows me to get outside and in nature so you can also be assured your home will be looked after with care and respect and any energetic dogs will be well walked!
