Responsible Graduate Student Couple Seeking House Sitting Opportunity

My boyfriend and I are both recent graduates of Yale Divinity School. We are moving to the Boston area in the fall as my boyfriend will start his PHD in comparative religion at Harvard. My boyfriend is originally from Kerala and Delhi, India and I am a dual citizen of Canada and the United States, having grown up in both Ontario and Wisconsin. We are both caring, responsible people with a deep respect for other people's homes and spaces. We both enjoy gardening, being outside, and connecting with the communities we live in. As recent (and future) graduate students we are especially interested in exchanging house sitting duties (whether home, garden, or animal care) for lower rent. We are house sitting in the Boston area from October through December and looking for longer term housing starting January 2021. We are wishing everyone the best during this time and look forward to hearing from you.

Hello. I am a recent graduate of Yale Divinity School. My boyfriend and I are moving to Boston this fall as he is about to start his PHD in comparative religion at Harvard. I have a background in writing, non-profit work, and chaplaincy. I am a dual citizen of Canada and the United States and grew up in both Ontario and Wisconsin. I enjoy gardening, cooking new dishes, and reading outside in the park.
