From Country to City
26, Primary School Teacher
I'm Jess - a yoga doing, chocolate loving, working professional. A couple of years ago my partner, Alex, and I moved from our small hometown in the country so I could take up a permanent job. I'm a primary school teacher in Sydney where I now spend my days teaching lovely little humans. Alex is in the construction industry.
Growing up in the country has meant that we've always been on farms and around animals. At home, we were both surrounded by two very loving dogs of our own. We are more than happy to care for other pets as well (throughout the years we have had chooks, guinea pigs, rabbits, birds, cows, fish and even mice). Until we buy a home of our own, we are unable to have a furry friend which is why we love house sitting.
Currently, we are living in a granny flat of our own but we enjoy short breaks or longer holiday stays. We are flexible with our locations in Sydney and are always open to longer sits to somewhere new in Aus during the NSW school holidays. My parents (Julie and Alan) use Aussie House Sitters as a way to see our beautiful country and recommended us using it to explore different parts of Sydney. So far it's been perfect!
We are reliable, extremely neat and tidy, respectful, very active, non-smoking (Jess has asthma and can't sit a home of smokers) and have police checks and WWCC if required.
We would love to have a chat or preferably meet in person if you are interested in us looking after your home, garden and friendly pets.
