MEET OUR APEX TEAM
Lesley is co-founder and head Administrator of Peak City Puppy. She has a graduate degree in from UNC-Chapel Hill and spent a decade in the fast-paced corporate healthcare industry. Ten years as a road warrior provided Lesley with an appreciation for the unique challenges facing busy working professionals: finding reliable, flexible and affordable pet care. Too often, boarding kennels were full or inflexible with her work schedule, while private pet sitting experiences ranged dramatically in quality of service.
Lesley co-founded Peak City Puppy in 2008 with a desire to create an entirely new service experience for Triangle pets and their owners: a professional pet care company built with the pet owner in mind. Lesley personally trains her team on Peak City Puppy standards of care and manages the daily schedule for all visits.
Lesley and her husband live in Apex with their daughter and three dogs: Jersey, Parker & Scout.
Trisha L. lives in the Cameron Park neighborhood in Apex with her husband and sons. She has personally been a Happy Client at Peak City Puppy since 2009, for care of her two large-breed mix dogs, Jake and Hurley. Trisha graduated from Meredith College in Raleigh and has owned several businesses. Her professional background is in food catering and sales.
Trisha loves to walk, and enjoys being outdoors on mid-day dog walks with clients like Sadie, Milo & Lizzie. Trisha’s passion for pets can be attributed to her kind heart and youthful spirit!
