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.


tacy rath, rvt

Practice 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: Piper, a Lab,  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.
