Classroom Assistant

Fiona de Freitas

I am originally from the UK and came to the USA in 1991. My husband and I settled in St Petersburg, as at the time we had just come into town on a boat and docked downtown St Pete at Jannus Landing. We spent several years cruising the Caribbean and my husband wrote 2 Cruising guides.

My degree is in Culinary Arts which I put to good use for many years before becoming a teaching assistant at St Paul’s Catholic School which my son attended. 

I have worked in the Elementary school system for 12 years and thoroughly enjoy myself.

In 2006 I started my own Pet sitting business and to this day still have plenty of clients which I enjoy spending time with. I am a huge lover of big dogs and am a pushover when it comes to snuggling on the bed. I am married to my husband Charles and we have one son who is a Junior at St Petersburg High School. We live in St Petersburg and enjoy living in such a culturally diverse city.
