dr. christine ostermeyer
Veterinarian, Medical Director
In third grade during career day, young Dr. Ostermeyer announced to her teacher and classmates that she was going to become a veterinarian. She stuck to it, and has now been a full-time veterinarian for Noah's since 2003!
Dr. Ostermeyer grew up in Pike Township in Indianapolis. Her family moved to Florida for two years when she was in high school, then back to Indianapolis. She attended Purdue University for her undergraduate studies and stayed there to receive her DVM from the veterinary school. After graduation, she found the perfect job at Noah’s and has been happy ever since.
As a vet, Dr. Ostermeyer particularly enjoys surgery. She likes working with cats and ferrets. At home, Dr. Ostermeyer lives with her husband, Robert, and their daughter, Ivy, and a group of feline family members. Between work and spending time with her family, Dr. Ostermeyer enjoys boating, gardening, and bike riding.
dr. sarah blair
Sarah Schroeder Blair graduated from Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1999, and then she went to South Florida for an internship in small animal practice at Hollywood Animal Hospital. This 24-hour emergency and referral practice convinced her to stay in the warm weather for 7 years as an associate and intern mentor. Dr. Blair then moved to the Chicago area to be closer to family, and she found a wonderful practice, Family Pet Animal Hospital, located in the Lincoln Park area for 6 years.
A job change sent the Blair's to Dallas, Texas, where Dr. Blair has been working at a terrific practice for the past 3 years. Yet another change brought the family here to Indiana, where they plan to stay! Dr. Blair is thrilled to join the welcoming doctors and staff at Noah’s Animal Hospitals, especially working in the little house that makes up the North location, where she instantly feels at home. Dr. Blair is board certified in canine and feline practice through the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners and loves being back at work.
Her family includes husband, Brian, daughter Delaney and son Colin, and cats Pearl, Squirrel, and Phish, and a Havanese named Yogi (who also thinks he's a cat). She met her husband in Florida during her internship and they will be celebrating their 20th anniversary in Key West in the Fall of 2023. She can’t wait to meet and care for your furry companions!
dr. BAILEY BURNELL
Dr. Burnell is an Indianapolis native, and received her undergrad degree from Purdue, and her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Lincoln Memorial University in Tennessee. She’s always had a strong drive and passion for all things animals, and has said since she was 7 years old that she wanted to become a veterinarian. She also enjoys anything related to livestock.
In her spare time, Dr. Burnell spends time with her husband, Micheal, her rescue dog, Dallas, and hanging out with friends.
Dr. Burnell is looking forward to meeting you and your pet!
Jen has been our Practice Manager since 2021. She led the team at the Noah's Carmel location before moving the practice to its current North location.
To say she's grown up with Veterinary Medicine would be an understatement. Her Dad was a Veterinarian, and she decided it was the field she wanted to be in too. She has a Veterinary Nursing Degree from Purdue and has been a BSRVT for 20 years. She also taught Veterinary Nursing at the Vet Tech Institute for 13 years. Her favorite part of the job is the critical thinking required to figure out how to help the patients, since they can't speak for themselves.
When not at work, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Lee, her son, Drew, her 2 Golden Retrievers, Harry & Ruby, and a kitty named Mia.
