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 at Sugarcreek practices.

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!

Judy Doyle


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 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.

Tacy Rath

Veterinary Assistant

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.
