My name is Naomi Peters, and I am a nomadic sitter.

Prior to recent years, I had periodically done house and / or pet sits for friends or friends of friends. And then I decided to switch to sitting full time. It’s a fascinating way to travel and see different parts of the world, and I enjoy being of service. Sitting this way is very much an equal exchange between you and me. I am giving my service in caring for your home and pets, and you are giving me a place to lay my head and a new area of the world to know.

A bit about me…

I am a small business owner with a great deal of animal care experience. I am a triple citizen of the US, the UK, and Australia, with family in all three countries. I enjoy being a nomad who likes to nest, spending a fair bit of time in each place.

I’m a non-smoker* and, though I do like a good day hike or hiking weekend when I have the chance, I tend to be more of a homebody.

* I’m actually quite allergic to cigarette smoke. Because of this, I’m sorry, but I can’t do any sits in smoking households.

Care for your home…  

I’m very tidy, and I’m also conscientious about respecting your home space and belongings. I’ve had some homeowners come back and say they didn’t even know I had been there. I run a business centered around organization, so you can rest assured that you will know about any mail that needs attention, the bins will be out and collected in a timely manner, and any appointments that need to be made (vet, gardeners, etc.) will be handled efficiently.

Pet or animal care…  

I have had pets most of my life. I grew up with dogs, cats, birds, as well as some more unusual members of the menagerie. While I was living in London, I also spent a great deal of time volunteering at Vauxhall City Farm, a city farm with a wide variety of large and small animals. It is such a wonderful place!

Animal care is also a big theme in my family. My sister and sister-in-law are both veterinarians, and mum is a fan of baking dog biscuits.

Plants & gardens…  

I’m perfectly fine with a bit of watering and the occasional weeding. But, if you have a garden that needs a lot of attention and / or care, I might not be the best fit for you. One day, my thumb might have a green tinge to it, but we’re not there yet.

What you need from me…  

Someone to show care and respect to your home and pets while you are away, a trusted & reliable communicator, & a person with experience and references in a variety of sits.

What I need from you…  

Fast & stable internet with enough data for my work*, clear & easy communication, & (if no easy access to public transit) a method of transportation (if needed to get around — if everything is walkable, I’m quite happy with that).

* If you’re curious about my work, feel free to hop over to that website & take a look. In terms of data, I use between 2 and 5 GB per day. Ideally, I’d want to be on a plan that allows for 150 GB per month of usage to be on the safe side. If you don’t normally use that much and your current plan has a lower limit, I’m happy to pay for an increase to the data allowance for the time while I’m there.
