The care and peace of mind that I provide has taken me across the country and back again. Many thanks to my clients and many more I received requests from. Rates may vary on a case-by-case assessment of needs and duration.

20+ years of experience traveling has taught me to be patient, calm, and flexible thus gifting me with many opportunities to meet incredible humans and animals alike. Over the years I have cared for pets of various temperaments and phases of life, as well as administered meds.

I possess an easygoing style and am highly communicative. I treat my surroundings with respect so light cleaning/tidying along the way is commonplace for me and maintaining household greenery can be provided. I can be found with stellar reviews on this site as well as AirBnB and will provide personal references upon request.

Generous & Caring Spirit

47, Project Manager

I believe in giving back. It's what connects us to our world and my amazing journey has led me back to my childhood home of San Diego after 20+ years in the Midwest. I'm single, a non-smoker with a practical mind and a warm heart. It's in my nature to leave things better than I found them. I've enjoyed travel for both work and personal adventure and always found myself gravitating to households with fur-amily members. I have the perfect lap for napping in, or so I'm told. For 11 years I cared for my beloved American Staffordshire/Boxer mix, Gabby. I can relate to how important finding trusted care is when traveling. It's my intention to provide peace of mind to my fellow travelers. I look forward to meeting you on your journey and for you to become a part of mine!

This was our first time looking for a sitter for our home and pets. When I contacted Starr she happened to be staying at a short drive's distance from us, so we had a chance to meet her in person before committing, Our cat and dog warmed up to Starr immediately and we found her to be very friendly, sincere, and conscientious. It felt good to know that our animals and house were going to be in good hands while we are away, During our trip, Starr texted us a few pictures and checked in once in a ... MORE

We are so lucky to have found Starr! She is so attentive to our kitties and our needs as anxious parents to keep us well-informed. She goes the extra step...above and beyond, even checking on our plants and moving them inside during a winter storm. We feel deeply comforted knowing that our girls are in her loving, capable hands. We always come home to happy kitties, happy plants and a tidy home.

Always appreciate your kindness and generosity of spirit!
Starr is so kind and easy to talk to. We knew our house and our cat Marie would be left in the best hands during our trip. She took amazing care of both! She sent us daily updates on Marie which we really appreciated. We came home to our house just as clean as we left it as well. We would definitely confirm her again for another sit and welcome her back to our home in the future!

Starr was a great sitter for us over the holidays. We got to meet beforehand to chat so I was comfortable with her staying in our home. She gave us updates and responded quickly when I had a question. Our pup loved the attention she got. Starr left the house in perfect condition. We would definitely try to book Starr again if we needed a Housesitter.

My experience with Starr was absolutely delightful. She is personable, responsible and efficient. We spent a few hours the afternoon and evening she arrived getting acquainted and I knew immediately this was the right choice. She communicated well throughout her stay and my cat was happy, the plants thriving and the house spotless upon my return. I feel I've made a wonderful new friend and most certainly hope for a return visit. I highly recommend Starr. She is a lovely and ... MORE
