Experienced Innkeepers Now Sitters

We are a retired couple and experienced innkeepers who would like to care for homes and pets while the pet parens are away. Richard has more than 35 years in nonprofit management, business plan and resource development and communications. Jackie has been a Registered Nurse for over 53 years working with home health and hospice care. As owners of a top-rated bed and breakfast inn, we have experience in housekeeping, maintenance and security. We are now ready to travel the world while we are both strong and healthy. We have 5 children, 11 grandchildren and 28 great grandchildren, so we appreciate the importance of family. Throughout our lives we have had a wide variety of pets, including horses, sheep, chickens, and many cats and dogs.
