Veterinary Assistant

When she was in middle school, Amy had the opportunity to shadow a veterinarian for a few days. Getting to part the curtain and see what went on behind the scenes in an animal hospital was eye-opening for her—she knew right away that she wanted to work in the veterinary world herself. Amy never gave up on her dream. Now, she’s a Veterinary Assistant!

Originally from Falls Church, Virginia, Amy launched her veterinary career in 2007 after some time working in retail. She applied to an animal hospital in hopes of becoming a front-desk receptionist, and was lucky enough to be trained on the job to become a Technician. She’s been helping pets in that capacity ever since! Amy joined the Hambright Animal Hospital family in the summer of 2019 when she wanted to learn more about advanced dentistry. Aside from her interests in oral care, she’s particularly fond of working with senior pets and helping them stay comfortable as they age.

When she’s not at work, Amy can be found reading, playing board games, crocheting, and spending time with her two cats, Miss Piggy and Slinky.
