Traveling Minimalist

56, Retired

Hi everyone - my name is Jennifer!

I'm a 56 year old American, and since 2016, I've been living a minimal, nomadic lifestyle.

In 2019, I began house/pet sitting, and I usually take on longer sits on the east coast.

My schedule is somewhat flexible, as are my plans. It's really about seeing new things and meeting new people.

In terms of caretaking, I'm extremely neat and orderly. Being a minimalist, I don't own much anymore, and this frees me to explore and go wherever.

My attention to detail is innate, and I'll care for your home and your pets as though they're my own.

We had such a great experience with Jennifer. She was the first house sitter we have used and are we glad we tried it. Several times on our trip we got updates about our dog, how things were with the house, deliveries, and general information. We got lots of Wallace-pictures to help us see how well he was being cared for. The house was perfect when we returned. Jennifer ensured we would be able to get home on time before she left the house. Everything worked great. I cannot say enough about ... MORE

Jennifer was a dream come true who completely met our needs beyond expectation. Just a few of the mini superlatives I would heap on her: Reliable, dependable, professional, great communication, beyond what was expected in her care for our pets, truly caring and loves animals, got along better than we do with our psycho cat , We returned to a nicely kept home just as we left it. With our animals looking great and obviously well cared for. She's a person you would like to keep as a friend ... MORE

Jennifer was more than amazing! She looked after our plants, home and older dog for about 3 weeks. Her communication before and after the sit was wonderful, which made everything easy and stress free. Tucker was very well cared for with lots of treats and walks and Jennifer get us picture updates throughout which was awesome. We hope to have her back when we head out to California again. I would highly recommend Jennifer as a house and pet sitter to anyone looking!

Jennifer was wonderful! Our house was perfect when we returned home and our pets were happy and healthy. She texted us pictures throughout our trip and always answers messages very quickly. I will absolutely reach out to Jennifer in the future for a sit!

Jennifer sat for our 3 cats and she is everything her reviews say. I enjoyed communicating with her and she sent many adorable pictures of our cats throughout her stay. She had to deal with giving antibiotics to one of the cats. She cleaned the house and did the linens. She is home most of the time so your pets have lots of company.. I have already booked her for next year
BARBARA ( Florida, Aug 2021 - 2 1/2 weeks)
Jennifer is so easy to communicate with during the sit, flexible as circumstances change and pleasant to be around. My dogs loved her and enjoyed their routine of eating and walking with her. I was so grateful to have Jennifer care for my home and "family" during a time of family duties calling me away.
KATHY ( Florida, Aug 2021 - 2 months)
Jennifer was awesome! She even survived a hurricane while dog sitting! She left our home spotless and our pet well cared for. We highly recommend Her!
KATHLEEN ( Florida, Jun 2021 - 2 weeks)
No rating Jennifer pet/house sat for 12 weeks at our house, agreeing to a week longer than initially posted. She took excellent care of our Livvy-kitty, for which we are very grateful! That alone eased our minds while away. She also dealt with the elements of a northern New England winter and early spring, enjoyed the quiet setting with Livvy, and sent pictures and videos to keep us entertained! She left the house in great shape, and always kept in contact with any questions or concerns. Livvy seemed to ... MORE
SHARON ( New Hampshire, Dec 2019)
No rating Jennifer took great care of our 2 cats. So much that we think Dexter would have liked to leave with her. Both cats were contented when we arrived home. No cold shoulder moments which was a nice switch. Jennifer sent us pictures and updates every 3-5 days as we requested. I could visually see that the cats were happy & doing well under her care. Jennifer made it so we had no pet concerns while we were away and we are most grateful for that. Jennifer the did sheets, dishes, remade the bed and ... MORE
ANN ( Georgia, Nov 2019)
No rating Jennifer took care of our home and beloved cat-Bruce-for four months while we were out of the country. She did a wonderful job, becoming another mother to Bruce and taking complete care of our home. She sent photos of both Bruce and the home when we needed them. When we returned home both our home and Bruce were in better condition than when we left them. The home was very clean and everything was were we had left it. We are looking forward to Jennifer coming back next year when we leave fo ... MORE
THOMAS (Charleston South Carolina, Mar 2019)
No rating Jennifer sat at my house for 4 weeks in 2019. I have two spoiled rotten cats and many house plants that needed to be cared for. Jennifer did an excellent job with both tasks and kept the house as I would have. I would love to have her back house sitting for me at any time
