Hello, I'm Stephanie


And I make sabbaticals and life abroad accessible to Black women.

How I Make Sabbaticals Accessible

House Sitter School

I teach house sitting newbies how to find and book their very first house sit so that they can have free travel accommodation. It really is genius.

ExodUS Summit

I'm the co-founder of ExodUS Summit, THE sabbatical and move abroad summit that teaches Black women how to live their travel dreams.

Vaycarians Sabbatical Fund

My community donates money to fund Black women's sabbaticals. In 2023 we gave $25,000 to New Orleans visual artist Myesha Francis. In 2024, we're raising money for musician Alecia Renece.

About Stephanie Perry


At age 41, I took a gap year from my job as a hospital pharmacy technician to travel the world for a year on savings. I visited 12 countries in 12 months all on just $1200 per month. Seeing how people live and work around the world showed me how work-centric and stifling life is in the US. 

I became a year-round house sitter and pet sitter and a coach for Black women interested in bopping around the world.

Now, through¬†my YouTube channel,¬†I help Black women reject ‚ÄúBlack Excellence‚ÄĚ and embrace ease through house sitting, sabbaticals and life abroad.¬†

I co-founded an engaged Facebook group¬†‚ÄĒ¬†ExodUS Summit¬†‚ÄĒthat's 16,000 strong! And my 164,000+ YouTube subscribers, The Vaycarians, have¬†given over $30,000 to support Black women on their sabbaticals.

For Speaking Engagements

Speaking for Conferences and Groups

I speak at in-person and online events like conference, summits, retreats and workshops. 

If your group of Black women wants to learn to take a Job Detox, I want to help them do it.
