Dr. Tutchton's passion lies in anything emergency-related! She loves the thrill of a fast-paced environment and the honor of being a part of helping a sick pet return to its family. She joined AVES after graduating from North Carolina State University with her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine in May 2023. She attended Old Dominion University, where she earned an undergraduate degree in Biology and played Division 1 Lacrosse. When Dr. Tutchton isn’t treating her patients, she can be found exploring her new city, enjoying live music, or binge-watching reality TV with her 5-year-old rescue dog, Otto.
