Prior to her election, Hutchings was a local businessperson.
Gerry Byrne, who held the riding of Humber—St. Barbe—Baie Verte for the Liberal Party of Canada since 1996, decided in June 2014 to not to run in the 2015 federal election and instead run in the 2015 Newfoundland and Labrador general election.
Hutchings, endorsed by Byrne, decided to run for the nomination in November 2014.
