dr. rachel dory

Medical Director

In the 8th grade, Dr. Dory started volunteering for a local non-profit animal shelter in her Arizona hometown. She soon began volunteering at the shelter’s medical clinic, and by sophomore year of high school Rachel knew that the veterinary profession was the only path for her!

Dr. Dory attended Purdue University for her undergraduate studies, receiving her degree in Biology with a minor in English. She then attended Auburn University to receive her veterinary degree, then returned to her family and friends in Indianapolis, where she started with Noah's in 2014.

Dr. Dory’s professional interests include surgery and critical care. She particularly likes challenging cases that require her to research and follow up with patients. Nothing is more rewarding to her than helping a pet get back on all four feet!

Dr. Dory has one pet of her own: a Boxer pup named Alfie.   She often takes Alfie along with her during two of her favorite pastimes - running and hiking. She also likes working on craft projects, and is currently working on several pieces of art to decorate her new home.

Emergency Veterinarian

Dr. Gebolys knew at the age of 4 that she wanted to be a Veterinarian.  Lucky for us, she made that dream come true!  

When not at work, Dr. Gebolys loves spending time with her family, which includes her 2 nephews.  Her favorite companion is her Pit Bull named Diggity (Hot Diggity Dog is his official name).  She loves to read, but Diggity can make that a little difficult, as he likes to lay on the book she's reading.

We are so glad that Dr. Gebolys is part of the Noah's family.

An Ohio native, Dr. Hartman received her undergraduate degree at Miami University.  She then attended the University of Tennessee, where she graduated with her DVM in 2015.

Her specific areas of interest in veterinary medicine are emergency and critical care, as well as diagnostic imaging.  Her strong desire to help animals and their people make the most of the human/animal bond led her to want to practice veterinary medicine.


When not working, Dr. Hartman enjoys spending time with her husband and her German Shepherd, Taryn.  She enjoys wildlife rehabilitation, hiking, reading and the occasional arts and crafts.  We are excited to have Dr. Hartman join the Noah's Central family!

Dr. Wright grew up in Fishers, Indiana, with a brother and a sister.  She attended Saginaw Valley State University for her undergrad (where she was an avid soccer player!) and Lincoln Memorial University College for her Veterinarian Degree.  She joined the Noah's Brandywine family in June of 2019.    

She is most interested in Oncology and Internal Medicine, but enjoys all aspects of Veterinary medicine.  When she's not at work, she enjoys playing soccer, exploring craft breweries, and hiking with her dog, Ace. 

We are thrilled to have Dr. Wright as a part of the Noah's Animal Hospitals family!

heather hooten

Veterinary Assistant

Every time Heather’s family took their terrier to the vet, she was fascinated by the veterinary procedures and would help whenever she could. She realized she wanted to work in the veterinary field as well. Now she’s a veterinary assistant at Noah’s Animal Hospital and Emergency!


Heather was born in Indianapolis, but lived in Iowa and New York as a kid because of her father’s military career. She attended International Business College in Fort Wane, Indiana to receive her assistant’s certificate, then did an externship at a local clinic. Eventually she became a part of the caring Noah’s team and couldn’t be happier. She particularly enjoys orthopedic surgeries, as well as dental procedures, spays, and neuters.

Heather and her husband, Billy, have three dogs, Porter, Scrappy, and Pepper. In her spare time, Heather enjoys riding motorcycles with her husband and regularly rides in benefit fundraisers.
