Mary Ann Vande Linde

Helping people, practices and pet-related companies be more successful has been Dr. Vande Linde’s focus for more than 30 years. From her humble beginning as a mixed animal practitioner in Georgia to the world-traveled speaker, trainer and lecturer of today, she consistently brings her engaging and entertaining style and a passion for excellence to her work.

Her firm, Vande Linde & Associates, specializes in client communications, exam room training, conflict management and practice development. Prior to setting it up, Dr. Vande Linde directed training and educational functions for such companies as Hills Pet Nutrition and IDEXX Laboratories. She also served as director of organization development for a multi-hospital practice outside of Washington, D.C. Dr. Vande Linde was a popular speaker at veterinary colleges and technician schools, speaking on exam room skills and practice development.

Today, you are more likely to find Dr. Vande Linde speaking at veterinary conferences, conducting in-practice training or hosting her own executive retreats to help women leaders in veterinary medicine find ways to be more successful. She has recently been named to the Advisory Board of the Companion Animal Parasite Council. Adding her warmth, Southern charm and passion for excellence to our Advisory Board will surely help us forge innovative new approaches to helping practices grow.
