Veterinarians

Lisa Meyer, DVM

Dr. Meyer was born and raised in Niles, MI, and moved to the Hudsonville area after graduating from Michigan State University with a degree veterinary medicine. After graduating from MSU, Dr. Meyer worked at the Animal Clinic in Grand Rapids for 6 years prior to coming to Georgetown Animal Hospital. She came to GAH in 2006 and eventually purchased the clinic from Dr. Bennett in 2009. (Which we are all very happy about).

Dr. Meyer performs routine/diagnostic exams as well as routine and not so routine (orthopedic) surgical procedures. She works not only on dogs and cats, but also treats pocket pets, reptiles and birds.

Dr. Meyer currently lives in Jenison (though she would rather live in a warmer climate) with her husband (Steve) and their three children: Melena, Braden, and Ava. Dr. Meyer and her family have 2 dogs: Trixie and Maxabelly.

When not working, Dr. Meyer loves to spent time with her family, especially attending all of her kids sporting events. She even occasionally coaches for her kids teams. In the summer, Dr. Meyer prefers to be outdoors, in the warm sunlight and she would prefer it if winter did not occur. ☺

Maureen Good, DVM

Dr. Good graduated from Michigan State University in 1994; she joined the staff at Georgetown Animal Hospital in 2003. She was the staff veterinarian at Harbor Humane Society for many years. At GAH she performs routine exams and appointments and works on dogs, cats, pocket pets, reptiles and birds.

Dr. Good lives in Grand Rapids with her dogs, cats and rabbits. In her free time, she enjoys gardening and snowmobiling.

Jason Chudy, DVM

Dr. Chudy joined Georgetown Animal Hospital in the fall of 2011. He attended Grand Valley State University where he did his undergraduate work. He then attended Michigan State University where he obtained his veterinary degree. After MSU he worked at Cedar Animal Hospital for 7 years, at which point we were lucky to sign him on at GAH. At GAH he performs routine/diagnostic appointments and surgical procedures; he also performs orthopedic surgeries and ultrasounds. He has experience with not only cats and dogs, but exotics as well. Dr. Chudy treats birds, pocket pets, reptiles as well as the occasional farm animal.

A native of West Michigan, Dr. Chudy currently lives in Wyoming, MI, with his wife (Sarah) and their son (Benjamin). They also have 3 dogs. When Dr. Chudy isn’t working, he enjoys spending time with his family, fly-fishing, playing soccer, cooking (his wife can’t), and gardening. He also is big into remodeling their home; I think he fancies himself a handy man.

Susan Woldyk, DVM

Born in Germany during the cold war (She’s a sleeper agent!!!), Dr. Woldyk grew up in Grand Rapids, MI. She attended and graduated from Michigan State University’s veterinary program in 1985. Georgetown Animal Hospital would not be around, if not for Dr. Woldyk and her husband Ron. They built the GAH in 1988 and then sold the clinic to Dr. Bennett in 1996, when she took off a few years off from practicing medicine to be home with her boys (Nick and Ben).

She came back to GAH in 1999, couldn’t stand being cooped up with her kids anymore. She is a permanent fixture at the clinic (she isn’t allowed to leave).

Dr. Woldyk is big into the outdoors, especially if it includes the Upper Peninsula; she loves camping with her family. When in the U.P. she also loves hunting for agates (boring). Both of her boys are now adults and attending college. She lives in Hudsonville with her husband and their 2 cats.

Practice Manager

Atilay Tulu

Atilay is a native of West Michigan (never got out of the area ☹) and has been with Georgetown Animal Hospital since 2006. Atilay is a graduate of Aquinas College with a B.S. in Biology. His previous work experience includes a stint at Harbor Humane Society as Kennel Manager where he gained a great deal of experience with animal handling. He joined GAH as a technician and was made Practice Manager in the fall of 2015.

When not working, Atilay enjoys travel; his favorite destination is the Florida Keys, he prefers international travel (when he can afford it). He also enjoys home projects, dry-walling, electric work and laying floors, but not plumbing (never again!). Other activities include biking and cooking (he loves to eat).

Atilay lives in Holland with his plethora of pets, 3 dogs, 5 cats and 1 turtle.

Technician Staff

Amy Pierce

Amy has been with Georgetown Animal Hospital since 2006. Prior to GAH she worked at Harbor Humane Society for 7 years, gaining tons of animal handling experience. Amy tried to leave GAH in 2014 but we wouldn’t hear of it, so she still puts in occasional hours at the clinic so we (and our clients) still get to see her. When she isn’t working at GAH she is working so for the Holland Deacons Conference, where she cares for people with mental and physical disabilities.

Amy is originally from West Michigan, though she would prefer to spend her time at Drummond Island. She has two boys, Oliver and Jonas, two super intelligent and active guys. Amy is big into CrossFit (as is her husband, Jason), running, crocheting, kayaking and horseback riding (the girl cannot sit still).

Amy lives Holland with her two boys and husband and their two dogs: Katie (aka Katie Lady Bug-a-Boo) and Smack (Smackaronie and cheese). She also has 3 horses.

Alaree Hall

Alaree (it starts with an A, not a V) came to Georgetown Animal Hospital (2011) with a plethora of animal experience: she had 7 years of MacKenzie's Animal Sanctuary and 5 years at the Animal Clinic (Grand Rapids, MI) before that. At the Animal Clinic she was the lead kennel technician and at MacKenzie’s she was the health care technician. At GAH, Alaree works as both a receptionist and technician.

Alaree was born in Winston – Salem, North Carolina (no, she has not been accused of witchcraft), and has moved around a number of times. She has made West Michigan her home. Alaree’s education includes an associate’s degree in science from GRCC (2002) and a B.S. in Biology from Grand Valley State University (2012).

Chaslyn attended Finlandia University where she received a B.A. in fine arts, focusing on fiber and fashion, and was an avid hockey player (and to this day she still plays a mean game). Chaslyn loves outdoor sports, especially winter sports, like snowboarding.

Chaslyn lives in West Michigan with her husband (Adam) and their many animals. Chaslyn has a love of cats and working at rescuing them, be it strays that are brought to the clinic or baby kittens needing to be bottle fed. They have 3 dogs: a St. Bernard (Stella Vanilla), a Jack Russell Terrier (Huntie-Bunz) and their Husky (Aiza Rose). They also have 3 cats; Palmer, Priddy (Prettiest cat in the world) and Cora Renee. I almost forgot to mention, they also have 2 horses Rudy and Cooper.

She obtained a B.S. in Chemistry and Forensic and Investigative Science from West Virginia University in 2012.

Jessika attended Grand Valley State University, graduating with a B.S. in Psychology in 3 years (overachiever). Jessika was born and raised in Hudsonville, MI, where she currently resides. She will be making a move to Saugatuck this upcoming year.

Jessika's previous work experience is what makes her great at working with people, she worked retail at Barnes and Noble. Jessika hopes to one day put her degree to work, but in the meantime she can observe and record her colleagues’ odd behavior.

Jessika has many interests outside of work including taking road trips, dancing, and binge watching Netflix. She also gets so excited over candy that she cannot breath (odd, I know). She hopes to someday travel abroad. She lives with her dog Lulu (Lulu Bear to those who know her).
