Our Careteam

Hope Drennon

Office Manager

During Hope’s high-school years, her family puppy came down with a case of parvovirus. Hope was integral in the process of treating her beloved companion at home—thankfully, the dog made a full recovery! The incident sparked a love for animal medicine that has persisted to this day. Now, Hope is proud to care for the pets and animal parents of Pendleton as the clinic’s Office Manager.

A native of Anderson, Indiana, Hope first began studying medical assisting in school with the plan of working in the human healthcare field. She secured a receptionist position at a veterinary clinic during her studies, and it wasn’t long before she decided to make a change! Hope has worked in the animal-care world ever since—she joined the Pendleton Veterinary Clinic team in June of 2010, and takes great pride in being able to help educate the area’s animal owners on the best possible care techniques for their pets.

Hope’s interests outside of veterinary medicine include singing—she participated in a solo competition at Disneyworld and placed eighth out of 200 contestants!—and going hiking and camping in the great outdoors. Along with her husband, John, and their three children, Hope shares her life with four dogs: Raja, Dutchess, Cupcake, and Rubble.

Carrie Carpenter

Client Relations Coordinator, Social Media Specialist

Carrie, like most veterinary professionals, has adored the company of pets ever since she can remember. When the opportunity arose for her to use her background in writing and marketing to benefit the lives of animals and the people who care for them, she knew she couldn’t pass up the chance! Carrie gets to satisfy her passion every day as a member of the Pendleton Veterinary Clinic family.

Carrie grew up as a military brat and spent many of her formative years growing up in Germany. After a brief time spent working in customer service during her teenage years, she found herself volunteering and working in animal shelters, even successfully coordinating multiple events and donation drives. Before long, Carrie knew that she wanted to transition to the medical side of the animal-care world. That’s when she joined the team here at Pendleton Veterinary Clinic! Carrie serves as the hospital’s Client Relations Coordinator and Social Media Specialist, and enjoys educating pet owners on new products that could help their companions and connecting with potential clients who have not yet had the opportunity to visit the clinic in person.

When she isn’t tending to the pets and animal owners of the Pendleton area, Carrie likes reading, writing, practicing her photography skills, and spending time with her family and dog at home. She and her partner live with a rescued Pit Bull, Kratos, a true gentle giant with a heart of gold.

Chloe Robinette

Veterinary Assistant, Groomer

Chloe got her first rescue dog, a Yellow Lab named Dusty, when she was only 13 years old. She and her new pet were inseparable—they remained together throughout Chloe’s teenage years and beyond. Dusty left a permanent impression; Chloe has always wanted to help others experience the same unconditional love that she did! She gets to do just that as a member of the Pendleton Veterinary Clinic team.

Chloe is an Indianapolis native and began working in an animal clinic right after graduating from high school. She’s been in the veterinary field ever since! After moving to Anderson, Indiana in 2015 to be a little closer to home, Chloe joined the Pendleton Veterinary Clinic family that October. Her favorite parts of her work are meeting patients and clients every day, assisting with complex surgeries and monitoring patients under anesthesia, and helping pets to look their best through the power of grooming.

Away from work, Chloe likes to go camping and horseback riding, play volleyball, and spend time with her family and pets at home. She and her husband, Todd, live with a menagerie of animal companions. They have a Black Lab mix named Chevy; a rescued Jack Russell named Lyla; Rocco the German Shepherd; and a constantly hungry cat named Sargent. Chloe is also the proud owner of four beautiful horses: Cash, a chestnut-colored Quarter horse; a jet-black mare named Vegas; the clumsy Pinball; and a sassy paint mare named Dice.
