NOAH'S BRANDYWINE ANIMAL HOSPITAL

About Us

Our Practice

 

Noah’s Brandywine Animal Hospital joined the Noah’s family of practices in 1997, when Noah’s acquired the practice from Dr. John Hunt, a well-known and respected veterinarian in the Greenfield area. Dr. Hunt transitioned his focus from small animals to equine and large exotic animals and handed over the reins of Noah’s Brandywine Animal Hospital to the capable hands of the Noah’s group. Pat Beaver, who worked with Dr. Hunt for many years, continues to work with the Noah’s team and is always happy to see clients from the “old days” as well as meet new pets and the people who love them.

Noah’s Brandywine Animal Hospital is a full service companion animal hospital providing comprehensive medical, surgical, dental and diagnostic care, all of which are specifically designed to extend and improve the quality of life for each patient that we serve. In addition to our veterinary care services, we also offer boarding, grooming, premium and therapeutic diets as well as popular pet supplies to serve all of your companion animal care needs.

At Noah’s Brandywine, we strive to maintain the high standards of care and flawless reputation that Dr. Hunt worked so hard to establish. Our team of highly skilled, compassionate veterinary professionals is prepared to assist your pet with all of the care and attention he or she needs to enjoy a long, happy and healthy life by your side. We look forward to welcoming you both to our office soon, and to becoming your trusted pet care partner for many years to come!

Our Team

 

Dr. Jennifer Crowe

Medical Director, Veterinarian

Dr. Jennifer Crowe cannot remember a time when she didn’t want to become a veterinarian—she’s felt that a job in animal care was her true calling ever since she was a young girl. She even recalls taking a career-placement test in the second grade, the results of which suggested that working in medicine was the perfect fit! Dr. Crowe never gave up on her dream, and now gets to better the lives of pets daily as a licensed veterinarian here at Noah’s Brandywine Animal Hospital.

Originally from Southern California, Dr. Crowe was only 16 years old when she began volunteering in the adoption center of a local animal welfare organization, where she helped to walk, clean up after, and provide basic training to dogs. After high school, she moved to Indiana to begin studying animal care at the University of Indianapolis; she started working as a member of a local veterinary hospital’s kennel staff within her first two weeks there. Seven years later, after earning both her undergraduate degree and her Doctorate, Dr. Crowe was the clinic’s newest veterinarian.

Dr. Crowe first heard about an opening in the Noah’s Animal Hospitals organization through her mother-in-law. She spent a year in the Greenwood office before joining the team here at Noah’s Brandywine Animal Hospital in 2016. In addition to her love of surgical work, Dr. Crowe is especially fond of educating local pet owners and forming lasting relationships with the area’s families. She even serves as “Pet Vet” for Channel 13-WTHR’s Saturday morning television segment!

Outside of work, Dr. Crowe enjoys sewing and visiting Indianapolis’s attractions with her family. She and her husband, Charlie, have two young children named Charles and Ruth, and also share their home with a pair of pets: Pandi is a rambunctious Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy who is just as full of energy as the kids; Gus the cat considers himself the official defender of the barn.

Dr. Shelby Wright

Veterinarian

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!

Elicia Parient

Practice Manager

Elicia’s old chocolate lab, Moca, opened her eyes to the veterinary field when the dog was just 6 months old. She was sick from an infection, and the subsequent trips to different veterinary specialists made Elicia realize she wanted to get into the veterinary profession!

Elicia was born and raised in Indianapolis. In May of 2006, she began working as a veterinary assistant at Noah’s. After three years, she was promoted to Practice Manager for the Noah’s Caring Hands location. Two and a half years later, in March of 2013, she moved to manage both the Noah’s Brandywine and All Pet Health Care by Noah's practices.  In September of 2018, she also started managing the Noah's Caring Hands location in Geist.  

Working with the caring staff and educating clients about pet care are Elicia’s two favorite parts of her job. Making sure clients are current on every aspect of their pet’s lives is very important to her.

Elicia’s furry family consists of Opie, an orange and white domestic long-hair, Java, a tortoise short-hair, and Jasper a Coonhound mix.

In her down time, Elicia enjoys spending time with her family, hiking, traveling and baking when she can find the time. In 2012 she was fortunate enough to go on an Alaskan cruise, where she was able to see wild salmon, bears, orca whales, humpback whales, moose, and eagles!

Tacy Rath, RVT

Office Manager

Anywhere she goes, Tacy finds her way to animals and says she spends more time socializing with them than she does with people! She works at Noah’s Brandywine as a Veterinary Assistant, and became a Registered Veterinary Technician in 2004.

Two years ago, after working in pharmacy for over five years, Tacy was ready for a change. She knew she wanted to work with animals, and started school again at Harrison College to pursue her Associates of Applied Science degree in Veterinary Technology. At the same time she started working at Noah’s and has been here ever since.

 

Tacy lives with her husband, Adam, and their two dogs: Brutus, and English bulldog, and Oscar, a dachshund who enjoys playing fetch. Tacy is an avid sports fan who cheers on the Indianapolis Colts and the Pittsburgh Penguins. She also loves music, especially country.

Emily Crist

Technician Team Leader

Emily is from New Palestine, Indiana. She grew up on a farm and always loved being outside with the animals and caring for them. Now she works as a Veterinary Technician and the Pet Care Specialist Team Leader at Noah’s Brandywine Animal Hospital!

After graduating high school in 2006, Emily joined the Army until 2008, then attended Harrison College from 2009 to 2012 to receive her qualifications to become a Registered Veterinary Technician. Emily completed her externship at Noah’s, then was asked to stay on and work here full-time. She loves working with animals and clients and making them happy! She also has an interest in surgery—during which she tends to “pick the brains” of the veterinarians—and radiology.

 

Emily’s husband, Bill, works at General Motors. Emily has two Chihuahua half-sisters, Honey and Jojo.

When she’s not working, Emily likes to go camping and attend concerts. She says her most memorable moment was coming home from Iraq and seeing her whole family!

Gabbi Stringer

CSR Team Leader

Growing up near Seattle, Washington, Gabbi spent most of her free time with animals of all shapes and sizes. With a grandmother who owned three pet shops, and a family with three generations of horse owners, there wasn’t a day that went by that she did not spend time with animals in her life. Gabbi grew up with a variety of animals, but mostly dogs, cats and horses.

When she was in the eighth grade, Gabbi moved to Idaho with her family, where she stayed to finish out High School. After graduating High School in 2009, Gabbi, her family, and her high school sweetheart, Andy, moved across the country to Indiana. Since moving to Indiana, Gabbi has continued working with animals. She has been working for Noah’s since October of 2014.

She currently owns two Quarter Horses, Lucy and Tyson, and shows them competitively at open shows and on the International Buckskin Horse and Quarter Horse circuits, traveling all over the Midwest.  She currently lives with her, now fiancé, Andy, their four small dogs, Hurley, Roxy, Smudge and Tilly, and their two cats, ZZ Cat and BK.

Judy Doyle

Groomer

Growing up in Indianapolis, Judy’s mother didn’t want a dog in the house, so at a young age Judy decided she would have animals and work with them!  She started working in the veterinary field when she was 19 years old as a receptionist. She decided to go to grooming school and found her passion—now she takes care of the pets of the Indianapolis area as the Groomer at Noah’s Brandywine!  Judy’s favorite part of her job is seeing the gratifying results of a good grooming. She says there are many times the animals enjoy being fussed over!

Judy lives with her husband, John, their dog Boo, and two kittens, Simon and Weepu. Judy and John enjoy trips to Lake Cumberland, Kentucky, shooting hand guns and spending time with their grandson. They are also active in their local church and support Angels of East Africa and the homeless of Indianapolis.
