Looking for a Pet/House sitting job!

HI My name is Alison Magallon, I have just moved here to Costa Rica from England although I have lived overseas most of my life in various countries. I am single 51, non drinker/smoker, have a 4X4 suv, very handy, loves nature and all animals. I am looking to pet/house sit for you while I spend some time and get a feel of where I would like to live in Costa Rica. I am very responsible and can provide references. I have been in the health and wellness industry for 21 years and running retreats which is what brought me to Costa Rica. I would love to hear from anyone that would be interested in my services. Thank You Alison
