Hello from sunny southern California

Greetings everyone. I’m Lonnie and happy to join this dynamic and exciting community. I’m a Family Nurse Practitioner, avid animal, nature, and travel lover. I’m taking a much needed work break and changing careers to Nurse Consultant so I can work anywhere that has WiFi. I cherish freedom and flexibility, which allows me to indulge other passions: writing, reading, cooking, gardening, dancing, walking, hiking, etc.

I was born in Chicago, left after Nursing school, and rebooted my life in Northern California many years ago. Since then, I have traveled, lived, worked, and studied all over the globe.

I am currently on my third house/pet sit, and I’m ecstatic that I’ll be doing the same in the UK (all close to London), from Sept - Nov. The homes and pets are amazing! Looking forward to connecting with others in this community, both in the USA and abroad.

Welcome to England, hope you enjoy the pets you meet over here!
I have 1 puppy, 1 kitten, 2 tree frogs and red tail shrimps…
An evening off looking after them would be lovely with my teenage daughter

My UK booking fell through, so I’m still in the States, and looking forward to sits in Australia. Good luck!

That’s such a shame. I hope you hadn’t already bought your flights….Good luck with sits in Australia

Dear Ionee World,

It’s a shame that you are not visiting the UK at the present time, but please have a wonderful time in Australia,

And, get back to me when you can come over here in the future.

Really best wishes
