Home Care Experience
The first home we purchased was one that needed to be fixed up. We spent a year fixing up the house and then sold it for a nice profit. We used the profit from this house to purchase six acres of land. We moved a mobile home on the six acre property and lived in the mobile home while we built a new three bedroom two bath home. We did use contractors for much of the work. However, we did do some of the work ourselves such as some plumbing, masonry and electrical. We also built a 24 foot by 24 foot barn to house the farm animals we planned to raise. After 28 years, we still live in this house. Over the years we have owned and raised horses, cattle, chickens, turkeys, goats, sheep, dogs and cats. Now that we are in our retirement years, we no longer raise farm animals and therefore have an opportunity to travel to Leicester more often. This provides an opportunity for us to offer to be  reliable house sitters and the home owner can feel secure when they leave Leicester for a holiday or business trip.

Retired from a professional position with the government after 25 years of service. After four years in the military in the electronics field and graduating college in the electronics field, started a career in the government which Included 20 years software design with some electronics troubleshooting and maintenance. The final few years in an office management position.
