Kelly Hayes-Raitt admits that she sleeps around (usually with pets!) as a full-time international pet sitter.
Fifteen years ago, after a 30-year career as a political activist promoting social and environmental justice, Kelly ran for public office and got her butt kicked. She decided to take a sabbatical from politics and ended up in the Middle East working with refugees.
She’s housesat throughout the U.S., Mexico, Europe, Southeast Asia and Africa. She’s visited more than 70 countries, including pre- and post-U.S. invasion Iraq, from where she reported.
She’s written several essays about her trips to the Middle East that have been published in a variety of anthologies, literary journals and newspapers. She’s also written the definitive book about housesitting called How to Become a Housesitter: Insider Tips from the HouseSit Diva, available in soft cover or Kindle on Amazon or as an ebook from her web site www.HouseSitDiva.com.
Besides sleeping around with animals, Kelly is an avid scuba diver who tries to perfect her octopus-whispering.
