Reliable & responsible


Hi there! I'm Kathleen in Loveland, Colorado. I fell in love with Colorado on a cross-country trip in my youth and decided to move here from Chicago. I love the beauty of the Rocky Mountains, the climate and people. My career was with Hewlett-Packard in various admin roles and web publishing. Ten years ago I joined a non-profit as a volunteer doing web support overseas. My travel has tapered off and I now do some support from home, and volunteer at local organizations.

I am a 'glass half-full' kind of person, positive, and open to new adventures. My skills represent a varied mix of experiences...

- Web designer
- Managed bed & breakfast overseas
- Taught Kindergarten/web publishing overseas
- Communications skills coach
- Job coach at homeless center
- Chaplain's team at hospital
- Northern Colorado Anti-Human Trafficking team
- Safehouse volunteer
- Lived/worked on a dairy farm

Lastly, I am a reliable and responsible person - someone with whom you can trust your home and pets. Thanks for taking the time to read my profile.

Kathleen was open and easy-going the minute we met her. She made Steve and I feel at ease about leaving our dogs and our home with a stranger. We knew that she was trust-worthy and caring and she proved it. Our house and our dogs were left in tip-top condition. We would have her care for our dogs any day.

Kathleen took great care of Atlas and ourplants. Comunication was perfect too. Kathleen was upfront with me about her health issues which she believes to be a result of "WIFI."

There was an incident where someone walked on our driveway to check the door of our car, (seen through footprints in the snow). Our car was locked, so the potential thief moved on. Sadly, ... MORE

I received permission to use ethernet instead of wifi from Aileen and Tom. Also, I know many people who turn off wifi at night for better quality of sleep. Knowing the wifi controlled their cameras, they still gave me permission. In our prior meetings I shared with the host that I don’t housesit in ... MORE
We so appreciated and enjoyed having Kathleen stay at our home and care for our dog and cat. She communicated well--asking questions as needed while we were away (we really appreciate that!). The home was left very neat and clean and our pets were happy and peaceful when we returned. Kathleen is highly recommended as a house/pet sitter and welcome back to our home any time.

Kathleen took great care of our cottage and pets. Our two cats are indoor/outdoor, requiring a little more logistics. Communication was excellent, our two cats well cared for, and the house neat and clean.
