Services

COVID-19 UPDATE: My services have resumed for the time being on a very limited basis. As of April 2020, the COVID-19 hazard pay hourly rate for cleaning, personal shopping, and sundry errands is $50/hour, and there is a $10/day hazard pay surcharge over and above the usual rates (listed below) for all pet sits until the pandemic situation is more under control. Thank you for understanding!

Business Closing Advance Notice:  2020 is my final year for pet sits and household services as I will be transitioning into horticulture at the beginning of the growing season for 2021. Thank you so much for your business and all the good years!
