Melanie Gunderson - President
Glendale Animal Hospital
Melanie started as a veterinary assistant at Tri City Animal Hospital in Elgin over 25 yrs ago and has enjoyed the field of veterinary medicine ever since. During her 20 years with Tri-City she grew from vet assistant to Office Manager. In 2009 she joined Pet Vet Animal Clinic as the Practice Manager, in her home town of Huntley. Pet Vet was a mixed animal practice along with providing mobile services. It was a very fun and interesting time for her and she has many happy memories from her time there. After 3 years at Pet Vet, she accepted a position as Hospital Administrator at Glendale Animal Hospital, in Glendale Heights. Her time there has been amazing. They have built a strong team and have created a culture that makes for a fun a friendly environment to work in. This past year they have been focusing on building a new hospital and she can honestly say it has been the most challenging time of her career! But they now have a beautiful facility and the space that allows them to practice best medicine. She is looking forward to just being a Hospital Manager again and not overseeing construction!
Melanie has 3 children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. She resides in Winfield with her husband Todd and their dog Fletcher. Melanie and her husband enjoy traveling, music and trying new restaurants when they aren’t working on a new household project.
