Leave Your B&B in Good Hands

Prior to becoming interim innkeepers and forming Inn Sitters OnCall LLC, our careers revolved around customer service, management, marketing, communications and the profitability of the organizations for which we were responsible. Located in Madison, Wisconsin, we are a couple available to provide relief innkeeping on an interim basis throughout the United States and in any English-speaking country. We bring rich backgrounds and a wealth of experience to your bed and breakfast inn.

Catherine’s background is in health care. She began her career with the Mayo Clinic system in the areas of health promotion and community outreach. She has worked with home care/hospice and outpatient organizations in direct patient care, management and administration. She retired as Executive Director of an outpatient clinic where she was responsible for overall administration of the organization including facility and employee management, marketing, communications, finances and long range planning.

Catherine is a registered nurse and has a master’s degree in public health administration. She is sensitive to guests’ needs and well versed in facility management and supervising employees.

John worked in communications and public affairs in the Wisconsin dairy industry and served as CEO of a national livestock health and welfare organization. He retired as Executive Director of a purchasing and management cooperative associated with the University of Wisconsin. John recently sold his 108-year-old Victorian home. He has experienced all of the challenges of owning an older home and is a very “handy man.” He is comfortable handling the issues associated with maintaining an old house.

John has a degree in dairy science and did graduate work in finance and accounting. He is well versed in computerized financial systems and management of online services.

As a nurse, Catherine can “see” germs – or so she claims. John, lacking that skill, obtained a SafeServe Manager’s Certification, so he can avoid them.
