I'm a kiwi glass artist and designer, born and bred. Recently I returned home to set up my studio on the beautiful south coast of Wellington, after six years of studying and working in Canberra, Australia. I have nearly 15 years of experience in hospitality as a barista, and am a keen and responsible animal lover.
In 2008 I spent a busy summer season in Picton managing a small, upmarket bed and breakfast. During this time I cleaned, made beds, did a lot of laundry and gardening, and welcomed guests to the premises. The last two years I have spent overseeing and running the bar and cafe of a popular live music venue in Canberra. Working in hospitality has taught me a lot about how to keep a clean and tidy space, and this has transferred to the various housesitting gigs I have had over the years.
As a child I spent much of my time cleaning cages and hanging out with the animals in our local vet clinic where my mother worked. More recently, I have been the co-parent of a large and very energetic dog, and the owner of five beautiful domestic pet rats.
Should you chose me to housesit for you I will care for your home and pets as if they were my own. I have my own transport and am happy to take your dog the extra mile for a run around!
I look forward to hearing from you!
