Description

Hello Sabbatical Homes Community! I am looking for a rental in the DC suburbs but will consider as far out as Richmond, VA. I have a PhD in the History of Science from Harvard and now work as a writer-editor for a DC nonprofit focused on energy and climate. I don't smoke, drink alcohol, or have children or pets. I love running, reading, being in nature, and exploring new places. I'm extremely responsible and would be happy to take care of mail, gardening, or other tasks that would give you peace of mind while you are away. I have just sold my home in Vermont and want to explore new areas before settling down again. I am an excellent caretaker who knows the importance of maintenance, and I would treat your home with the same respect I do my own. I will be happy to provide references. Thanks for your time!

About Me

Although I am well acquainted with academia and have a Ph.D. in the history of science from Harvard, I chose a non-academic career. I am currently the lead editor at a nonprofit in Washington, D.C. focused on energy and climate. I was previously an academic editor helping non-English speakers publish their work in English-language academic journals. Remote work has given me the opportunity to live and work in Massachusetts, California, Oregon, Washington State, Northern Virginia, and Vermont. I have made many new friends through rentals and housesitting while exploring different parts of the country. I'm an avid runner and I love to read. I am a vegetarian and enjoy experimenting in the kitchen with cooking and gluten-free baking. As a former homeowner I know how important it is to promptly address any problems that arise, and I will take the same care with your home that I have always taken with my own. I am sensitive to noise so you can count on me to be a very quiet guest.
