Courteous and competent
34, Secondary School Teacher and Boarding House Master
30, University International Student Engagement Coordinator
Welcome to our profile - we are Alex and Michael, based in Armidale NSW. We have lived in Northern NSW for 3 years now after relocating from Sydney. I (Alex) work as an International Student Engagement Coordinator at the University of New England and also as a Pilates fitness instructor. Michael works as a Secondary School PE teacher and Boarding House Master at an independent school here in Armidale. We both love our jobs and take great pride in what we do.
Prior to this, Michael has worked extensively at both public and independent schools in Sydney and Perth and I was previously the Executive Assistant at Sydney Dance Company and philanthropy coordinator at West Australian Ballet in Perth.
A little bit about who we are as people though!
We are an active couple that enjoy the outdoors immensely, often going on small trips away for the weekend to explore the various landscapes of NSW and have gone on numerous longer trips across Australia and overseas. We have a love of coffee, design, food and animals. Both of us grew up with animals as part of the family; myself with a dog and a ginger cat, Michael with a German Shepherd.
We are non-smokers, limited-drinkers and are not the partying duo. We spend a large portion of our time with friends in our community and enjoy visiting family.
We have both had experience housesitting and petsitting for a number of friends and family over the years. We have thoroughly enjoyed these experiences, finding great joy in taking care of animals and playing with them as we no longer live permanently with our own. We are very tidy, caring and responsible people who understand the level of trust placed in people taking care of not only your home but also your much-loved pet/s. We love pet sitting and have had so much fun doing so in the past - it really is like a breath of fresh air being able to be around animals again, for both of us!
If you'd like to know more about us and whether we'd be a good fit for your pet and home, please get in touch. We'd love to hear from you!
