My name is Trisha Lares. I was born and raised in San Diego and lived in Los Angeles for 7 and a half years. I went to school at Moorpark College and graduated with degrees related to animal care and training. I have been working with animals since 2005 and love it! I have worked with everything from dogs and cats to monkeys, apes and cheetahs and tigers. I have a 13 year-old Labrador and 4 mischievous cats. In my free time, I have completed several half marathons and love to travel. Before moving to Texas, I was able to combine both hobbies and completed the inaugural Disney Paris half marathon. My goal is to someday take the leap and complete a full marathon!
