Crofton Veterinary Center's Dedicated Team
Our team of veterinary professionals is dedicated to delivering the best customer service and compassionate care to you and your pets.
Amy Hutchinson — Hospital Manager
Amy was a latecomer to veterinary medicine. After a short tour in the U.S. Air Force, she worked as an investment advisor and Registered Paraplanner at a boutique investment firm in California. In 2010, Amy left the finance/investment world when her active duty Air Force husband was transferred to Germany.
In Germany, Amy fell in love with veterinary medicine while working as a veterinary nurse at the U.S. Army veterinary clinic in Stuttgart, Germany. Amy has worked as a veterinary technician in small animal general practice as well as in veterinary cardiology. She began working at Crofton Veterinary Center in 2014 and was promoted to Hospital Manager in February 2019.
Outside of work, she enjoys traveling and spending time with her Bernese Mountain Dog (Othello), three cats (Chalupa, Tacocat, & Pico de Gato), husband, and teenage son. She is a lifelong learner who obtained her Master's Degree in Business Administration in December of 2018.
