Virginia “Ginny” Melvie

Even though it often makes her job more difficult, Ginny enjoys making other people’s jobs easier. With an uncanny sense of what needs to be done to keep things running smoothly, she is Tunheim’s petite superhero. Ginny brings to the firm more than 25 years of executive-level support and works directly with our president and CEO.

Prior to joining Tunheim, Ginny was executive assistant to the chief deputy attorney general for the state of Minnesota. She assisted the chief deputy in the day-to-day management of the office and a staff of more than 500 employees, working on both short- and long-term planning for the office. She also was an active participant in the state’s litigation team that worked on what was (and is) considered the single most important piece of litigation to arise from the Minnesota Attorney General’s Office: the tobacco settlement.

Ginny brings a broad range of skills to the firm, having worked in a variety of industries throughout her career, including: corporate, legal, government, boards, nonprofits and political campaigns. Some of her previous political roles have included: state convention delegate, past precinct chair, PAC administrator, and a member of the Alan Page for Justice Committee.

When she’s away from the office, Ginny enjoys watching the Minnesota Twins, reading home décor magazines, dining out and, in the summer, enjoying a strawberry daiquiri with friends.
