Elysia Hunter


Veterinary Assistant
elysia_rhoda

Elysia is a native of Rapid City and has over 15 years collective experience working in the veterinary industry - 8 of which have been at Noah's Ark.

After graduating from St. Thomas More, Elysia lived in Mankato, MN and Portland, OR before spending 9 years in the Washington, D.C. area. She holds a BA in Communication with a minor in Gender Studies from George Mason University in Fairfax, VA.

Elysia enjoys travel and in addition to visiting many states in the union (including Alaska) international trips have included France, Singapore, Indonesia, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Canada and Mexico. 

Elysia and her husband Brett spend their free time hiking, camping, biking, gardening and barbecuing - they take their mixed breed pup, Rhoda, whenever they are able. Alternately, they also enjoy time at home with their five “kitty kids” – Chunk, Commentator (‘Tater for short), Turkey, Goulash the Grey and Quigley.

Elysia is an essential asset to Noah's Ark and can often be found behind the scenes assisting in all areas of the practice. We are lucky to have this "jack of all trades" on our team.
