Linda Cobarrubias founded and currently runs an accounting business for the past 40+ years. In addition, she began developing her pet photography business just over 4 years ago. This new venture is the result of discovering her passion during more than six years of volunteer pet photography for various animal welfare organizations. Linda brings 30+ years of volunteer experience ranging from Board level to events, projects and the daily tasks of nonprofit work, along with her advocacy for the protection and adoption of animals in need.

Linda lives in Palm Springs with her husband and three dogs (a maltipoo named Porsche, a morkie named Sally Carrera and a Pomeranian named Murphy Brown.) She is currently volunteering at three shelters locally. She enjoys travel, especially to San Jose Del Cabo, Mexico where she has a home and volunteers at two shelters. Linda also has a passion for Porsches and continues to be an active board member in the Porsche Club of America after more than two decades although at this point in her life animals take precedence in her HeArt.

Lisa is an artist, a profound lover of animals and leader who sought a solution to the problem of animal homelessness through an artistic, holistic lens. An alliance builder, Lisa believes in collaboration that empowers all stakeholders to shape their shared vision for the future together.
