Description

Hi! I am in the second year of my PhD in geology! I am a passionate researcher and anticipate much of my time will be spent at the lab on campus or studying at home. I have experience house sitting and renting and I greatly prefer the coziness of house sitting. I am clean, respectful, and accountable. My partner is an elementary school teacher and a gifted guitar player. I would love to be trusted with your home while you are away and am happy to keep you connected to it via photos while you are traveling if that makes you feel safe and satisfied!

About Me

Hello! I am an incoming PhD candidate at UW Seattle where I will be studying subduction zone tectonic geology! I have spent the last 5 years living and Vermont and my move to Seattle will be my first time living in the Western United States! When I am not doing geology, I volunteer with water quality advocacy groups and with youth outreach groups (especially Nordic skiing programs!) I have experience house sitting and am looking for a cozy place for my partner and I to call home as we move to Seattle. My partner leads outdoor trips and travels often but when he isn't canoeing or hiking he is a fantastic cook and looks for a good kitchen in a place to live!
