About Georgetown Animal Hospital

As one of the most established veterinary practices in the Hudsonville, MI, area, we have decades of combined experience and a long list of happy clients. Each one of our team members, from the veterinarians to the receptionists, has a deep passion for pets and easily treats every patient like they are their own. (Sometimes, we need to remind the staff to give the pet back.) We have built a reputation for being trustworthy and honest, and wouldn’t be the awesome office we are without our team! Scroll down to get a fun introduction to everyone in the office.

Meet the Peeps!

Lisa Meyer DVM | Georgetown Animal Hospital<br />

Lisa Meyer


Read More!
Dr. Meyer was born and raised in Niles, MI, and moved to the Hudsonville area after graduating from Michigan State University, with a degree in veterinary medicine. After graduating from MSU, Dr. Meyer worked at the Animal Clinic in Grand Rapids for six 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 (with an emphasis on preventive health care) 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 Hudsonville (though she would rather live in a warmer climate) with her three children: Malena (heading off to college – MSU – GO GREEN!), Brayden, and Ava. Dr. Meyer and her family have two dogs, Cayman (the second cutest little staffie EVER!) and Ransom.

When not working, Dr. Meyer loves to spend 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.

Jason Chudy

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 seven 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, and 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 three dogs. When Dr. Chudy isn’t working, he enjoys spending time with his family, fly-fishing, playing soccer and hockey, cooking (his wife can’t), and gardening. He also is big into remodeling their home; I think he fancies himself a handyman.

Stephanie Dorner, DVM | Georgetown Animal Hospital

Dr. Stephanie Dorner attended Calvin College for undergraduate school and went on to MSU and graduated with her veterinary degree in 1997. Dr. Dorner comes to us from South Kent Animal Hospital and has been with us since January 2019. Have we mentioned that we are so happy to have her on board here? At GAH, she performs routine diagnostics and exams.

Dr. Dorner is a West Michigan native and lives in Grand Rapids with her husband, David, and their three children, Annabelle, Gabe, and Aaron. Dr. Dorner enjoys downhill skiing and would like to learn cross-country skiing, as well as how to sail. She and her husband hope that once they get the kids out of the house, they will have more time to themselves and pick up some more hobbies (not that they are in any kind of rush or anything).

Dr. Dorner has a menagerie of pets on her ‘farm,’ as many as 22! For those of you who are curious, she has five chickens, a bearded dragon, two ponies, a rabbit, two parrots, nine cats, two dogs, and of course, her husband (kidding!). That was an exhausting list! It is a wonder she gets anything else done, having to care for all of those guys and her children. It is said that the cockatoo’s vocalizing may be causing some marital strife, those of you who have ever had one or know of someone with a cockatoo can surely understand.

Alicia Peless | Georgetown Animal Hospital

Alicia Peless

Alicia has been with GAH since December 2018 and has been a quick study. She came on board as we were in the midst of moving from our old location to our new facility, and if that move didn’t scare her off, we’ve got a keeper! Alicia is so laid back and makes working with her easy. Nothing really gets this girl in a bad mood which is rare to find in people nowadays.

Alicia’s degree is in Graphic Design from the College for Creative Studies (which she is using to its full potential – sarcasm). Alicia also designs graphic tee shirts in her spare time, so I guess she is using that degree after all!

Alicia is a pescatarian, meaning she is a vegetarian who will also eat fish but no other animal proteins. It does not mean she worships fish. I mention this in the event that someone reading this chooses to bring in snacks for the staff (if any of you reps are reading this), there is one of us that does not eat meat.

Alicia lives in Grand Rapids with her husband Matt, their four dogs Pooka, Nollie, Zeke, Kilo, and Moose, a cat named Dali, and a lizard named Nora. Until recently, it was just three dogs, but she let one of our reps stick her with a puppy. She and her husband are also hockey fanatics and are always playing in a league.

Amy has been with Georgetown Animal Hospital since 2006. Prior to GAH, she worked at Harbor Humane Society for seven 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 two days at the clinic so we (and our clients) still get to see her.

Amy is originally from West Michigan, though she would prefer to spend her time at Drummond Island. She has three boys, Oliver, Jonas, and Regan, who are each 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 in Holland with her three boys, husband and their two dogs, multiple chickens, a couple of cows, two horses, and a mini horse.

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, but 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, two dogs, five cats, and one turtle.

Brianna joined the staff in May 2019 and came to us from Ottawa Animal Hospital, where she worked as a technician for five years. She is an accomplished and proficient technician. Brianna is a native of West Michigan, born and raised in Zeeland. She and her longtime boyfriend have just recently taken the plunge into marriage.

Brianna and Kyle enjoy traveling and exploring the state together. When they travel, they like to; hunt for mushrooms (not those kinds), kayak, and go fishing (not the card game). When Brianna isn’t working at GAH, she cuts hair on the
side and runs a craft business with a friend. She has developed a somewhat unhealthy fascination with gardening, as well as growing her own vegetables and fruits. Brianna has one cat, two dogs, and a multitude of chickens.

Brianna, yes, there are two of them on staff, and they both have blonde hair, so good luck with that. Brianna joined GAH in September of 2021 and came to us with 14 years of previous experience in veterinary hospitals. Brianna is a native of Michigan and currently lives in Grand Rapids.

Brianna has two children, a 3.5-year-old son and a 12-year-old daughter. Brianna attended Grand Rapids Community College as well as Central. Brianna has an affinity for carbs and is a lover of food in general, though she has some weird views on what is good food. For example, spice is a No-No. I’ve been told that Ketchup is as spicy as she will go. If you want to stay on her good side, don’t ever suggest pineapple on a pizza or try mixing fruit into any of her food.

Psychology being one of her interests of study, has led her to be really into enneagram. Brianna is also into Netflix documentaries, Whiteclaw, and Witches Brew wine, and she enjoys bonfires and taking her poochies to the dog park (she has two of them). Family is her biggest passion, though.

Amy lives in Holland with her three boys, husband and their two dogs, multiple chickens, a couple of cows, two horses, and a mini horse.

What can we tell you about Emily that doesn’t require censoring?

Emily was born and raised in Kalamazoo, MI. Emily came to GAH during the height of the COVID pandemic, she previously worked at Cascade as a pet care assistant and a veterinary assistant. At GAH, she is a
technician/receptionist, you know your pets are in good hands with her as she treats them like they are one of her own.

Emily has a fun personality with what I would describe as a touch of ADHD, but hey, it makes the days more exciting. Emily goes above and beyond to help out anyone that needs it.
Emily has many hobbies outside of work, many include spending time with her family. She likes to spend time with her dad (she mocks his accent relentlessly) he is English. Though while he has taught her how to make a Scotch egg, he overcooks them.

Our quota hire…
Lorial was born and raised in Chicago, but don’t worry, she knows Detroit style beats Chicago style every time. She attended Mars Hill University in North Carolina and majored in zoology with a minor in psychology. Lorial’s hope is to one day work for a zoo, as that is where her true passion lies.

Lorial and her husband (Michael) moved to West Michigan so that he could live out his calling of working for a dispensary and also to be closer to their families. It was at the height of COVID that they moved (it was the “in” thing to do).

Lorial joined GAH in the fall of 2022, she came to us from Cascade, where bestie Emily also came from. At Cascade, she wore many hats, she worked as a kennel attendant, then a veterinary assistant, and then made her way to shift leader assistant. She has been a great addition to the GAH family.

Sydney TerHaar

Sydney came to us from Ottawa Animal Hospital as an animal care attendant and joined GAH in October 2018. She now works as a technician and receptionist.

Sydney just recently left the womb (she is very young) and is living at home with her parents, where she cares for their plethora of pets. It might be a good thing that she’s still at home with her parents, as I could see her becoming a dog hoarder. Every time a puppy, especially a lab, comes through the door, Sydney wants to take off with it.

Sydney has taken on two of her own pets, Boone, an American staffie mix, and Forge, a rambunctious cat, which makes it impossible for her to sleep at night as he enjoys knocking items to the floor in the middle of the night.
Sydney, in her spare time, enjoys hunting, hiking, camping, and chasing cows.
