Teanna Aduddell, RVT

Head Veterinary Technician

Teanna graduated from North Dakota State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Veterinary Technology/Animal Sciences in 2008 and joined the Noah's Ark team in March of 2009.

Born and raised in Rapid City, Teanna returned to the area to be near her family - especially her young niece Abby and nephew Nathan.

Teanna's life is under the thumb (dewclaw!) of a “few” cats (lol), 3 dogs, (Cinch, Sprout, & Tie), and 2 guinea pigs, Lieu and Miguel. If not spending time with her "kids" or dedicating herself to her career, Teanna can be found fishing and hiking.

Teanna was the receiptiant of the award for South Dakota's Technician of the year in 2015. We are grateful to have her on the Ark's team.

Elysia Hunter

Veterinary Assistant

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.

Marisa Moran

Marisa Moran

Front Desk/ Marketing

Marisa was born and raised in South Dakota and grew up on the Rosebud Reservation. Animals have always been a big part of her life as her family raised many different animals through the years such as dogs, cats, chickens, horses, rabbits, and even a cow named “No Ears.” 

She graduated from Sinte Gleska University with an Associate degree in Arts and Sciences. One of her passions is combating violence towards women and children and she has spent the last few years as an advocate with both WAVI and White Buffalo Calf Women Society.

Marisa is the proud auntie to her late brother’s children, Xaviar, C’airra, Dj and Mason and helps raise them with the help of her mom Carolyn and sister AnjuliSiri.

Marisa's quiet, steady demeanor is a huge asset to our practice, and helps the team stay grounded during the rigors and emotions of veterinary medicine.
