Responsible, Kind & Calm Caretaker For People (and Pets!)
During my 4 years living in Copenhagen, Denmark, I worked as a personal caretaker for a woman who had cerebral palsy. My responsibilities included personal care, housekeeping and cooking, running errands, driving her to work and events and helping to keep her life organized. I would describe myself as very easy to be around, friendly, kind, organized, reliable and professional. I am good at sensing what a person needs without he or she always having to ask, but I am also aware of a person's personal space and I respect that.
I also have a great deal of house and pet sitting experience and over the past 3 years I have sat for 13 homes in many different countries and places.
On a personal note I love to be outside and garden. I have 4 plots at a community garden with my family and we grow all kinds of vegetables and herbs. I love to be active and ride my bike, do yoga and swim.
