Amber A Harrell
Amber joined our team in March of 2018 after already being in the veterinary field for 6 years. Amber always had a love for all animals so much that she decided to turn it into a career. Amber applies her skills in all areas here at the clinic. She is always willing to lend a helping hand to whoever needs her. You can usually find her at the front desk greeting the clients and their babies or somewhere in the back assisting Dr. Sult just to get the chance to play with all the sweet babies.
Amber currently lives in Martinsville, Virginia with her husband, Eric and daughter, Alexis. The current pet population of the Harrell household includes Brody; a beloved Great Dane mix, Bentley, Chance and Maya all of which are beautiful Pit Bull Terriers and their loving friend, Ziva Kitty. On her days off, Amber enjoys spending time outdoors such as hiking, camping and kayaking with her husband. She also enjoys attending concerts with her daughter and music festivals.
Barbara E Gee
Licensed Veterinary Technician
Barbara is our Licensed Veterinary Technician. For Barb, working in veterinary medicine is much more than a job or even a career. She's felt pulled toward animal care ever since she can remember- serving as a veterinarian professional is truly her calling!
A Roanoke native, Barb began her veterinary adventure in 1988 when she signed on as a Veterinary Assistant/Kennel Assistant at a local animal hospital. She then moved to another clinic, working her way up from a kennel position to the senior Veterinary Technician and obtained her Veterinary Technician's license at the same time. Barb remained with that hospital until 2010. After taking a few years off from the animal-care world and managing a fitness facility, she signed on with a clinic in Troutville, Virginia before joining the Noah's Ark Animal Complex in August of 2018.
As a Technician, Barb enjoys dentistry work and the instant gratification it can bring. She also really like cytology. Most of all, she loves to interact directly with clients on a daily basis and do whatever she can to brighten up a pet owner's day.
Barb's interests outside of veterinary medicine include reading, swimming (she's even won medals in the breaststroke and freestyle as a member of the local swim organization!) and enjoying time with her family. She and her husband, Colin, have two grown sons and a pair of wonderful grandchildren. Barb also shares her life with three dogs- Roxie the Australian Shepherd, a spoiled Terrier mix named Pepper, and a silly Australian Shepherd named Major Tom, as well as three fish and six quirky cats: Ben, Beckett, Grace, MJ, Stitch and Max.
Allie joined our team in January of 2019. She gained her love for all animals at a very young age. She first got started in the field right out of high school. She started working for a local adoption shelter, where she adopted her goofy boxer mix, Josie and her lazy Pit Bull mix, Jaxx. After working there for 2 years she realized she wanted to continue her education. She received three certificates in veterinary assistance. She has been working in a veterinary clinic ever since.
In Allie's personal time you can find her outdoors. She enjoys 4-wheeling, kayaking, hiking, fishing and riding horses. Although the Stanley household only includes 2 dogs at the time, Allie has a huge love for large animals and wildlife. She enjoys working on the farm and rescuing injured critters.

His love for the animals, charismatic personality and eager to learn personality have made him a key player to our team. Jared loves both people and animals, as well as being outdoors and being at the beach. He currently resides in Vinton where he is an active member of his church. When Jared isn't taking care of animals here for us; you can find him with his family, friends and his sweet rescue dog, Jonas. Rest assured that when you decide to leave your babies with us, they'll be left in good hands.
