Amy Zander, Hospital Administrator

Amy has been managing Wilbraham Animal Hospital since 1999. Although her career did not start in the veterinary community, she grew up in this wonderful, giving environment. Her father was Dr. Richard Hersman and she was joined by her brother, Dr. Andrew Hersman, in 2005.

She graduated from Lafayette College with a BA in International Affairs. She went on to pursue her graduate degree at Central Connecticut State University, where she earned her Masters of Science in Organizational Communication. Although she loves the animals that she meets every day, she focuses on the people that bring their beloved pets to Wilbraham Animal Hospital!

Certified Veterinary Technician

A life so young
Has now been freed.
Courageous yet kind
Patient and compassionate
A “thousand watt” smile
Wise beyond her years
Sweet, comforting, cheerful
Intelligent; eager to learn
A little sass!
Illuminating, radiant
Emma, We love you!
