Dr. Jill Windy, DVM
“I didn’t fully understand why I wanted to be a veterinarian until I was one. I always thought it was because I loved animals and healing. While that is certainly a vital part, I found that my love for people is what helps me be successful as a veterinarian. I love teaching, I love learning, and I cherish relationships. Some of my greatest joys include seeing pet owners learn something new that allows them to feel they are better pet care givers, helping a pet that used to be terrified and isn’t, and helping a painful pet enjoy life again. I relish being able to help care for pets through each stage of life, getting to know them and their families.
Owning the practice gives me the ability to form a team of people who believe the way I do about our patients and clients, and about ourselves. We do not ask if we can help, we ask how. We are given the unique opportunity every day to make a difference in animals’ lives, and in people’s lives. What a gift! “
Dr. Windy graduated from the University of Illinois, College of Veterinary Medicine in 2000. She is a native of Illinois, but has made Elkhart her home since joining the Noah’s team in 2000. She and her husband, Matthew, have three children. When she is not at Noah’s, she loves spending time with her family and her pets, and being a musician and competitive ballroom dancer.
Dr. Colleen Thompson, DVM
“I’ve always had an interest in medicine and animals. I was inspired by my pet reptiles growing up to not only know cats and dogs, but to be able to treat exotic pets as well. I want every patient visit to be as stress free and enjoyable as possible, especially for our exotics patients. “
Dr. Thompson came to Noah’s from the great state of Wyoming. She graduated from Colorado State University, College of Veterinary Medicine in 2013 and joined the team in June of that year. While most of her human family is still in Wyoming, her Indiana family includes her mostly well-behaved dog, Quita, her always well behaved bearded dragon, Geordi, and Iguana, Bean. Outside of work, Dr. Thompson is also an avid hiker and backpacker.
Dr. Paul Champion, DVM
I enjoy working in a dynamic profession that allows me to provide a service to my community. Veterinary medicine is always changing, challenging me to learn and adapt while always striving to improve. I want to always be a source of information for our clients and to help them and their pets achieve the best quality of life I can.
Dr. Champion joined the Noah's medical team in 2020. He is a 2018 graduate of Purdue University and a native of our area, having grown up in the Granger community.
