I’ve always been involved with animals; I was in rabbit 4-H club and worked on a dairy farm when I was a teenager. I want to make sure every patient is happy and healthy, and clients go home with the answers they need to keep their pets well. My furry family consists of Cookie-my 6 year old chihuahua mix, who is my hiking buddy and Jack-my 3 year old chihuahua, who keeps me entertained with his energy and antics at home.
Brenna joined the Patient Care team at Noah's in March 2021.
“I wanted to learn more about the animals that came into my life and help others, so I chose veterinary medicine. My main focus is help our patients and their owners with whatever they need and to be there for them both. I live by the mantra, ‘Give it your all, or not at all’. Besides my dad and sister, I call a horse named Pepper, 2 miniature donkeys named Sophia and Henry, cats Flynn, Remus, and Maverick, my dog, River Elli family.”
After completing a veterinary assistant program, Maddy became part of the Noah’s patient care team in 2016. She aids doctors and technicians in the outpatient as well as surgical arenas.
I have had an affinity for animals all my life. Everything intrigues me about every pet I meet. I chose to start from the ground up in vet med. I started as a kennel attendant and quickly moved to veterinary assistant. I have now had over 20 years experience and am currently at the front desk caring for clients and putting my knowledge to use triaging patient and client needs. My goal is to make sure everyone is treated fairly, honestly, and has a great experience from beginning to end!
Tracy joined the Noah's team with several years experience under her belt. After working with us for over 13 years, she took some time away for other pursuits, and then rejoined the team in 2019. She shares her home with her husband, a 3 legged black leg named Lilly, and a squad of cats all ranging from 1-12 years of age. Tracy likes to live by the Golden Rule, and wants to make the world a safe place for us and our 4 legged friends.
I truly don’t know why I chose veterinary medicine until I started working in an animal clinic. Seeing what a difference we make daily brings me so much joy and knowing we helped is the best feeling. My goal with every patient visit is to grow experience and appreciation for all animals. Seeing the impact they have on their owners is one of the best things about this job. The mantra I live by is “keep going until you are proud.” Besides my mom, I have 4 Cats-Monster, Bean, Uki and Murmur and 2 dogs-Gator and Oreo.

I chose veterinary medicine because I have always had a passion for animals and taking care of them. I want to make the client and patient feel welcome into the environment. I want to help the patient with whatever they need and for the client to walk out happy with their animal taken care of.

In 2011, we welcomed Link to the Noah's family. He provides the staff with well timed head butts and lovins as well as act as general supervisor for unloading of boxes and filling peanut butter containers for the exam rooms. He is a link to our clients, especially the kids. He is a character, and only having three legs has never slowed him down. He enjoys watching the comings and going from his throne in the hub and never passes up an opportunity to play with his toys or beg for dental treats.

I knew that working with animals was my calling because the sight of them suffering makes me want to take all the pain away. Helping them feel better also helps the owner feel better. I treat every animal with care and handle every case with care. I want the owners to know that we are here for them and to call or contact us if they need anything.

I wasn't sure what career I wanted to pursue. My dad suggested that I always liked animals, learning, and science. That is how I stumbled upon a veterinary technician. I thought it sounded interesting and I never looked back. My goal is to make every patient feel as comfortable as possible. I love getting my nervous patients to open up, relax, and realize that coming to the doctor is actually a fun experience. Ultimately, what I want is when I come around the corner, they get excited to see me.
