More Information

New to MindAHome, but three years of house-sitting experience on Nomador (some testimonials and references pasted below).

I am American. An author, a digital nomad, a gardener, animal lover and have become something of a gypsy by choice. House-sitting provides me the opportunity to give something back in exchange for opening up my horizons even further. I have a preference for long-term house-sits, must have unlimited use of the internet for communicating with my clients (I do not download or stream videos this is simply for email). Access to open water for swimming or a pool (yes, I can maintain it, run filters, flush systems) are huge bonuses. I have a clean driver's license so if you are remote use of your vehicle (as I am not renting one) is most genuinely appreciated.

There is a very real satisfaction in giving love to a pet that is missing its owners, and peace of mind to homeowners that someone (namely me) cares sufficiently to send videos and pictures of their pets and sometimes Skype live calls as requested. As a former Fortune 50 consultant I project manage exceedingly well but have burned out of that life and am content with 'small things'.

Love all animals but pictures of some of the dogs I have cared for over the last couple of years.

Non-smoking, no drugs, neatnik and DIYer. I'm an American struggling with the current socio-political environment so I decided to give myself some breathing room. Ask me anything as I am an open book, but you can also Google me (I am not famous but I have a substantial digital footprint).
Thank you for considering.

Daily check-in's (if you desire).

Committed dog sitter :)
Teresa has been a gift to our set-up – extremely enthusiastic and reliable, the dogs love her and we never have to worry about things being under control at home. Definitely an 'above and beyond'-type personality! Sure she is excellent at gardening too although she hasn't had a chance to get stuck in in the UK in winter... Very resilient and resourceful too – won't even let a serious tumble down the stairs dampen her spirits. Thanks Teresa :)
Good Morning,

I first met Teresa 10 years ago when she was in the process of launching Thistle & Broom, her fair-trade luxury Scottish craft and fashion online emporium. Myself, and my colleagues at the time who also encountered her were all instantly struck by her warmth, natural exuberance and her obvious passion for her business and the fair-trade cause underpinning it. She quickly became a close ally in my role, at the time, managing VisitScotland’s North American marketing programme. And, of course, she became a great friend.

Teresa treats everyone she meets with courtesy, impeccable manners, charm and good humour. I can say that with some authority having watched her interact with over 20,000 New Yorkers when T&B exhibited at a 9-day US expo I used to run….Tartan Week.

Teresa’s background is in marketing communications (with large and small, private and public sector operations). She’s embraced digital communications and has excelled in social marketing in particular where her natural ability as a gifted story-teller comes into its own. Her more recent focus on tourism-focused social marketing and, in particular, luxury properties have very quickly gained much traction for her clients and with tourism media. And her ability to combine a prolific social publishing regime with high-quality outputs is a rare and valued skill.

I could go on, I’d be happy to provide any further points of clarification regarding Teresa if you require.
Yours Sincerely,
Ewan Colville
Managing Director
To Whom It May Concern:

I have known Teresa for five years. She is an absolute whirlwind of talent and energy. She creates exquisite environments and is exceptionally visual. She is also a firecracker of passion and excitement. She can hold a conversation with just about anyone. She is a classic jack of all trades, the person who can step into a complex situation and do it all, with sprezzatura.

In addition, Teresa has worked in marketing for many years, and she has a strong sense of how to merchandise and enchant. She thinks like a marketer, and uses her communications skills with prowess.

I think it is obvious I think the world of her. I hope her profile is a good match for what you need.

Teresa stayed at my place for a month and we shared lots of laughs and meals together. She kept the place looking fresh and made sure my cats had food, water, and love at all times. Her experiences around the globe are plenty and she certainly has an interest in the people she meets. It was fun hosting her.

Teresa représente ce que nous aimons des américains : la jovialité, l'optimisme et une délicieuse exubérance! Elle s'est très bien occupée de mes 2 chats et me donnait régulièrement des nouvelles.
Elle a même eu la gentillesse de transformer mon panier de légumes pour me laisser des bons petits plats!
Elle a fait un choix de vie courageux et a des tonnes d'anecdotes! Petit bémol sur le ménage car départ matinal et elle s'en est excusée. On peut vraiment lui faire confiance pour s'occuper des animaux et rendre des services! 1000 mercis Teresa!

Teresa est adorable. Enjouée comme le sont les américains, toujours le sourire et à la découverte de la culture française. Elle n'est restée que 2 jours mais son séjour restera en mémoire. A bientôt Teresa!

Nous avons apprécié sa venue chez nous.
Nous garderons le contact avec elle.
Personne de confiance absolue!
