49, Public Service
Hi, I am Sharon.
A little about me:
I am a single, an animal lover as well as a book and Netflix addict. I currently work remotely/work from home for Aged Care under The Department of Health, so that means I can work anywhere.
Am currently based in Brisbane and have come from Canberra.
I have previously come from a background of 'Community Services' and prior to that 'The Department of Defense' I have two grown up boys who now have a life of their own. I have no responsibilities apart from my job.
I am a non-smoker and have my own car.
I am a very clean person and like to have a tidy house.
I never wear shoes in the house and I have the same respect for yours.
I enjoy the company of animals, I enjoy giving cuddles as well as receiving them.
I have a long history of looking after pets as well as having my own pets.
I had my first dog when I was two. He was a Black Labrador and he was named 'Cheeky' and he was very cheeky. :-)
My dad was third generation breeder of German Shepherds and a member of the the German Shepherd dog association in Canberra. He has an extensive collection of medals he has obtained from our show dogs I was always with him at the dog training as well as helping with the 'pups' when they came along.
I have been a foster mum to many dogs and have had care of them in my home until I found suitable homes for them.
I have looked after big dogs, small dogs, from Rottis to Maltese terriers.
My last dog that I owned was a Maltese Terrier. I lost her a few years ago to cancer. Her 'hubby' a Shiatzu x Maltese is owned by my 23 year old son.
I had my first cat when I was 13. I have never not had a cat in my house until recently when my 18 year old 'Bella' passed away. She was my girl and I miss her every day. :-(
I taught myself to ride when I was 14 on a friends horse that she had on her property. I lost count of how many times I was bucked off but I always kept going and didn't give up. I am an experienced rider and have done many musters, as well as teach people to ride and assisted with a riding school for people with disabilities. I owned my first horse when I was 16 and up until a year ago I had two horses on my property. I am happy to exercise your horse, but also respect if you only require a walk.
In addition to the animals above I have looked after as well as owned fish, birds, guinea pigs, chickens, goats, and even owned a rat. and more recently, peacocks and a few bush turkeys. :-)
Medication: I do not have an issue with providing your loving pet with medication, weather its a liquid, pills or creams. Just tell me what and when.
My hobbies include:
Reading (alot), cooking, watching movies. (DVD's, Netflix, going to the actual movies) walking/hiking, swimming, going out for dinner, and travelling.
I hold a:
Working With Vulnerable People card. Which I need for my job. I am happy to provide you a copy if you require it.
An NV1 Security Clearance (Secret) which I obtained with the Department of Defense. This was granted in April 2019. And expires after 10 years. Requirements of this entails a very extensive background check. I will provide a copy if required.
I am happy to provide any written references that you may require for sits I have completed that have not been listed on here as I have my 'regular' clients.
I would love to help in any way I can.
If you have any further questions please feel free to ask!
Hope to hear from you soon.
