Scot Harbin, DVM

Dr. Scot Harbin has spent his entire life in Indiana gradually working his way south through the years. Born and raised in the small town of Whiting, Indiana until he moved south to West Lafayette to attend Purdue University Veterinary School where he both graduated and married his wife Sherry in 1994. She is a professor at Purdue University in the School of Biomedical Engineering. Upon graduation, he moved further south to the Indianapolis area to start his veterinary career. He has been practicing veterinary medicine full-time at McCordsville Veterinary Hospital since 1998 after he and his partners purchased the practice. In 2001 he became sole owner of McCordsville Veterinary Hospital. He enjoys the variety of cases including medical, surgical, and dental cases that a general practice presents on a day-to-day basis. He enjoys educating clients whether answering their questions or providing information concerning the pet’s medical conditions.

When not at work you will usually find him spending time with his wife and boys, Alexander and Zachary. The household would not be complete though without the family pets currently consisting of one Golden Retriever (Mello) and three Domestic Short Hair cats (Camden, Oscar, & Kobe). Everyone in the family enjoys a multitude of outdoor activities including hiking, biking, and scuba diving when time permits.

Kristen Sprunger, DVM

Dr. Sprunger has been a part of the team at McCordsville Veterinary Hospital since May 2008. In 1998, she received her Bachelor of Science Degree from Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio. She couldn’t stay away from the Hoosier state for long, completing her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2002 at Purdue University.

This gym rat works out nearly 7 days a week. From cross fit to weightlifting, she is a fitness enthusiast. Her two daughters, Bryn and Eve, enjoy spending time with her testing new recipes, and shopping online.

Owen Pulver, DVM
Dr. Owen Pulver is our newest associate veterinarian, joining our team in June of 2023. He is originally from Dwight, IL. He completed his undergraduate degree at Millikin University in Decatur, IL in 2019. He then went on to attend veterinary school at Purdue University, from which he graduated in 2023. When not at work, he likes to keep busy with a number of hobbies, including gardening, hunting, fishing, hiking, and working out. He also enjoys spending time with his fiancée Mackenzie. They currently have one cat (Dash) and are planning to add a dog in the near future. Dr. Pulver is also an avid sports fan, with his favorite teams being the Purdue Boilermakers, Chicago Cubs, Chicago Bears, Chicago Bulls, and Chicago Blackhawks.
Vanessa Belcher, RVT
Vanessa joined our team in October 2019 as a Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT) and has been a wonderful addition to our hospital. She attended Vet Tech Institute, graduating in 2013. Her passion is educating our clients on the proper care of puppies and kittens, helping get them on the right track for a long and happy life.

Vanessa lives with her husband, Josh. Together they care for their pets, Cash, a pitbull; Dahlia and Hank, mini poodles; and Storm, their Siamese mix. In her spare time, she enjoys tending to her ever-growing house plant collection and going to car shows with her husband.

Sam Haygood, RVT
Though you may not have met Sam, she is working hard behind the scenes to help give your pet the best care. Since September 2012, she has been sharing her expertise and skill as a Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT), with us. She is a 2010 Graduate of Purdue University with a Bachelor of Science in Veterinary Technology. She enjoys challenging cases and cares for each patient as they were her own.

When she’s not at work, Sam keeps busy with her family activities, pets, and hobbies. Her and her husband, Brandon, have two active boys. Together as a family they love and care for two dogs, Karl Wayne and June, and one cat, Retta. When she gets a moment to herself, you’ll find her reading a book, listening to a true-crime podcast, or trying to sneak in another family pet.

Shelby Jones-Maddox, RVT
Shelby is a 2016 RVT graduate of Harrison College who joined our team in January of 2023. Shelby has been an amazing addition to our team; she especially loves building relationships with clients and their pets and providing them with the best care.

Shelby is kept busy with her two-legged and four-legged kids: two humans; Rudy, a Greyhound; Marnie, an Aussie mix; and Midas and Calliope, her feline friends. If you can’t find her during the warmer months, it’s because she’s camping, at a concert, or cheering on her daughter at the softball field.

Parker Mohr, Assistant

McCordsville Veterinary Hospital just would not be the same without our little brother, Parker. If you’ve ever met Parker, you will know he’s not little standing at 6’4”. Since September of 2020, he has kept us entertained daily with his pranks, jokes, and soothing phone voice. Parker graduated in 2020 from Purdue University with a BS in Animal Science.

Parker is a man that needs little sleep. When not working you will find him on his family’s farm or volunteering his time as a firefighter in a nearby community. Parker completed his certification in the state of Indiana for firefighting, and is working towards his EMT certification.

Calyn Pope, Assistant

If you have ever been at our hospital and felt a strong breeze, it was Calyn rushing past making sure everything is running as a well-oiled machine. She’s been part of our team since August of 2019. While working full-time with us, she is also taking online classes through Penn Foster to earn her degree in Veterinary Technology. Calyn also has a love of education and in 2017 received her BS in Criminal Justice from (shhhhh…do not tell our Purdue graduates) Indiana University. Thankfully for us, she appreciates working at a place where she gets to hone her skills as an assistant.

Concerts, painting, Zumba, road trips, wine and dinner out with friends are just a few of the recreational activities Calyn pursues after hours. She’s the one to sing along to every song and share a good joke. Her home is filled with love from three rescue cats (Andre, Stevie, and Huey) and one rambunctious pup named River.

Audrey Hines, Assistant
Audrey has been a wonderful asset to our team from the beginning. We are elated that she chose us for her first job in veterinary medicine; her love of animals really shines through with her passion for patient care. If you ever can’t find her, she’s probably in the kennel snuggling a surgery patient.

When Audrey is away from the hospital, you might find her spending time with her husband (Chandler), family and friends or watching the newest rom-com. When Audrey is home, she has the full attention of her super fluffy Bernese Mountain Dog, Rey.

Jeanna Baker, Assistant
After spending years working in retail, Jeanna has rediscovered her passion for veterinary care. She has previously worked as a veterinary assistant and is now brushing up her skills while spoiling your pets. After assisting in appointments, caring for patients after surgeries, and closing down the building, this photography hobbyist spends her free time hiking and camping with her fiancé, Julius, and their four kids. They enjoy local state parks as well as traveling out of state. Her busy household is completed with their dog, Jax, a miniature schnauzer.
Jill Gallo, Assistant

Jill has been a member of our team since the fall of 2023. Jill’s positivity and attention to detail have been a staple to our practice. As if working full time isn’t enough, she also has a two-year-old son and is currently enrolled at Ball State pursuing her degree in Criminal Justice. In her scant spare time, she enjoys spending time with her son, watching Bluey, and being outside.

Taylor Anders, Assistant
Taylor joined our team in March of 2024. Taylor is always ready with a smile and is quick to jump in and help with whatever is needed. She enjoys helping clients understand ways to better help their pets live long and happy lives, and we have greatly benefitted from her strong work ethic. Taylor enjoys reading, hiking, and baking, and is kept busy with her husband and her four dogs: Buddy, Cooper, Nova, and Sig.
Stacey Valentine, Receptionist

When you arrive at our hospital you are probably greeted by Stacey’s smiling face or warm welcome. Thankfully she’s been with us since July of 2014. Stacey does the impossible: fielding phone calls, checking in/our patients, balancing the schedule of all our appointments, and deciphering the writing of our veterinarians. Stacey has an associates degree in accounting and her veterinary assistant diploma.

Rain or shine, you will find her outdoors. It doesn’t matter how warm or cold she enjoys hiking, camping, kayaking and fishing. Her love of the outdoors has led her to become an Advanced Indiana Master Naturalist. Stacey also enjoys the company of her great dane, Luna and her lovable cat Geoff.

Sierra Grooms, Receptionist

Sierra joined us in April of 2022 as a receptionist and truly loves her new job here. Sierra has been in the customer service industry for the past 10 years and loves to help people and animals! She went to school at St. Vincent where she got her EMT/BLS license. Sierra is currently on a new path to discovering her true passions in life.

In her spare time, you can find Sierra obsessing over her Yorkshire terrier puppy, Bruno. She also loves coffee, astrology, Japanese culture, and crystals. Sierra has always been an avid animal lover, so much so that she became a vegetarian! She loves all animals, including dogs and cats, elephants, big jungle cats, and even penguins, and dolphins. When she has the time you can find her stimulating her brain by doing puzzles, painting, reading, and writing poetry.
