Traveling Solo / House Sittin' & Pet Lovin' since 2018!


I'm a Canadian and I spend 6 to 7 months per year in my beautiful country. I travel for the remaining months of the year.

Unless another commitment or assignment is involved, I am flexible on dates and length of stay.

I own and run a digital marketing & advertising agency since 2001 so I can live anywhere, as long as I have a fast and reliable internet connection. I still work full time.

Consequently, I will spend the vast majority of my time in your home, working and keeping your pet's company.

If you don't want your fur baby (or babies) to be left home alone for long hours, I am definitely the ideal sitter for you! :)

I live & eat healthy. I do not smoke and I will only consider assignments for 100% smoke-free properties.

I enjoy living in a clean (above average) and clutter-free environment. Do we have this in common?

I am a trustworthy, reliable, quiet and responsible person.

If you need reassurance, you are welcome to email or call any of the fabulous home and pet owners I had the privilege to meet and sit for. I will gladly provide you with their contact information upon request.


I have always taken every opportunity to travel, even when my three (now grown up) children were very small. Now that they are all independent and on their own, I am free to travel year round, and I prefer to settle in and get to know a place as opposed to traveling as a tourist. Plus, I love meeting and helping people. House sitting provides me with this opportunity.

Getting to know some fabulous people, enjoying lovely settings and great companionship with your pet(s) is what I enjoy. I love animals, they have been part of my life for the last 35+ years.

I like to do light gardening and I'm also pretty good with fixing most of the issues that may arise (or to at least come up with an ingenious 'temporary' fix). I consider myself to be a creative and resourceful problem-solver.

I can assure you that you will have a very pleasant and worry-free experience, giving you the peace of mind to fully enjoy your vacation.


I have completed over a dozen house/pet sitting assignments since 2018, booked via House Sitters America, House Sitters Canada and Trusted House Sitters.

Please take some time to read the reviews I received and make sure to ask me for additional ones I have from another house sitting website I use. I am confident that it will give you the reassurance you need.


I am available starting the 1st week of November 2023,

Please do not hesitate to ask any question you may have. I will be happy to answer them for you.

Let's chat and see if we're a good fit! :)

Thank you,

Tina was truly an amazing house/pet sitter. She checks so many positive boxes I don't know where to start! From our first contact; Tina was on time and detail orientated. Upon arrival she took a measured pace to bonding with Beau our 14 year old Yorkie. Being an older dog he is getting finicky...Tina not only showed the utmost patience but also offered great ideas from her past experiences to improve Beau's situation, from feeding to taking his pills, Tina was so helpful! When we were gone on ... MORE

Tina was amazing. She looked after my 7 month old puppy extremely well. She trained her to sleep through the night and to stop barking. She communicated regularly with me and answered all my questions. I came home to a spotless house and a happy puppy. I highly recommend her and would be thrilled to have her housesit for me again.
LEONIE (Vancouver, V5K 0B3 , Dec 2019 - 4 weeks) From House Sitters Canada
This was our first experience with House Sitters Canada and we were absolutely thrilled with our sitter Tina. Tina sat for us between 23 Sept. to 15 October. Our cat and dog were looked after as though they were Tina's personal pets. Our home was in immaculate condition when we came home. Tina communicated with us whenever we needed reassurance that everything was going well. All in all, we were delighted with our sitter and House Sitters Canada and would highly recommend both to anyone ... MORE
PAMELA (Ottawa Ontario, Sep 2019 - 3 weeks) From House Sitters Canada
One simple word can sum up our experience with Tina - WOW! Leaving ones home and pet in the care of someone you do not know can be stressful! Tina was truly amazing. We corresponded a few times prior to her arrival and then had a day to get acquainted prior to us leaving. Tina instantly made us feel we had chosen the right person. She was friendly, incredibly responsible, tidy, willing to go above and beyond (paying delivery charges on a package we sent from abroad), reassuring us via email ... MORE

She was prompt and to the point in any communication with us during our trip, whether we inititated it or she did.
