Hi there! I'm Karen. I currently work in west London as a Personal Assistant. I've had a love of travel for as long as I remember. I also enjoy cooking, watching movies, meeting up with friends, going for long walks etc. I would describe myself as a 'social introvert' - I enjoy meeting new people, but am also happy in my own company. I've always had a mature outlook on life, but also have a witty sense of humour! Many people describe me as 'calm' and 'friendly'. I have always enjoyed housesitting. I think I was about 20 when it first started, and have been grateful to have had a number of opportunities since that time. They say a change is as good as a rest, and I enjoy a change of scene to help me explore new areas and also relax/recharge. The housesitting has mostly for friends but more recently for people I don't know (eg friends of friends of friends, and I have also recently signed up to another housesitting agency before I discovered this one!). As I write this profile I am currently caring for 7 pets - cats, rabbits, dwarf hamsters and an African Pygmy hedgehog!! I have also looked after the occasional dog in the past, other cats, other rabbits, as well as a budgie... and even teenagers while their parents went away! Sometimes no pets are involved; friends just appreciate having someone they trust staying to make their place look lived in and water plants/let the cleaner in/keep an eye on incoming mail. As mentioned, I work in London and as such welcome the opportunity to housesit in the London area, although I also have the ability to work remotely, and I do like to escape to the coast or countryside occasionally... especially in other countries! ;-) References available. I also have a clear enhanced DBS as part of my employment having access to information about vulnerable children and young people - I am happy to show you a copy upon request. I look forward to meeting you and your pet(s) and being able to offer you some peace of mind while you're away from your home.
