About Sharon
I am a reliable experienced active lady in my 50's , non smoker with excellent references from previous housesits, returning multiple times.
I have been house and pet sitting on a regular basis for over 10 years and from over 200 housesits in 18 different countries completed I have acquired 99.99% x 5* reviews (100% on happy housesitters and 100% on the world renowned Trusted Housesitters). I have also gained a Diploma in Animal Psychology to better understand and care for the pets to which I have been entrusted, and am currently studying Diploma in Advamced animal Psychology.
I have been a member of the Country Fire Authority maintaining the position of Secretary and has been faced with many challenges and disasters where my quick thinking and level headedness were an asset.

During 2019 I had the opportunity to travel throughout 32 countries petsitting, and have a total of 140 x 5* reviews on Trusted housesitters and Happy housesitters. Since January 2020 I have volunteered my time as a foster mum for Animal Welfare League of Qld, nursing sick animals back to health and also providing love and care for those awaiting adoption.

Sharon was an excellent carer. She looked after our 4 chickens so well. It was lovely to receive the photo updates everyday. We even came home to a welcome home card which was very sweet. Would highly recommend Sharon without hesitation She definitely goes the extra mile. Thanks Sharon . 🐔❤️
