I'm a Jill of all trades. I'm a retired high
school teacher. Lots of common sense, no drama,
and a variety of skills.
I am looking for a caretaker position on a
ranch, farm or estate with housing provided and
will accept my three (all under 20 lbs) house
small dogs. They're elderly, and I cannot leave
them. They're good little watch dogs who alert me
when their are strangers around.
I am 64, an avid hiker and very physically active
and healthy. I raised on a farm in Ohio and though
the only girl, I learned everything my brothers
learned. My parents were no nonsense German
We had 500 acres, 200 head of cattle, 5 horses, 12
goats, countless barn cats, a chicken coop and one
very happy rooster. I understand the needs both
small and large animals. My dad grew grass hay,
sugar beets and field corn. I also participated in
semi-professional barrel racing for years.
I am also an avid gardener.
I am looking for a property that I can take
care of as if it were my own. I am open
to working in a bed & breakfast setting, as well,
but with three dogs that could be a problem.
Being a farm girl, and because I was single until
I was 34, I can repair just about anything:
carpentry repairs, plumbing, electrical,
irrigation systems. My late
father taught me that by using a wire coat hanger,
duct tape and pliers, you can repair just about
anything. Maybe only temporarily, but until you
can find the parts and proper tools, it
works. I can also drive tractors and lawn
equipment. I have used chain saws and weed
As a teacher, I held DOJ (Dept of Justice)
criminal clearance, I can easily renew that.
I would be happy to answer further questions or
supply with you with my professional resume.
Thank you for reading and your consideration.
