About the area:
Frederick is the 2nd largest city in the state of Maryland and one of the fastest growing cities in the DC metro area. The downtown area is packed with charm including civil war museums, Maryland School for the Deaf, row houses, quaint one-of-a-kind shops, local eateries, micro-breweries, and local distilleries that are mostly pet-friendly. Outside of downtown is a large military base, Fort Detrick. Just outside the city proper, but still within Frederick County, you can find rolling hills, wineries, orchards and a strong agricultural presence. You can also hike part the Appalachian Trail. Frederick is part of the Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan Area - located less than one hour from Washington, D.C., Baltimore, and about 45 minutes away from Gettysburg, PA. Frederick considers itself the city where hip meets historic every day.
The veterinary profession isn’t like any other—it’s the only field predicated on the love of a patient who can’t tell you what’s hurting and can only look to you for help. It takes a special kind of person to do that job, or the jobs supporting that job. NVA doesn’t create those special people—we find them, cultivate them, and give them resources and opportunities to do what only they can do. Whether treating patients, managing a pet resort, or serving hospitals from NVA’s Support Center, NVA’s animal professionals are caring people, united by a love of animals. NVA is proud to honor that connection and is committed to serving our team members by providing them with the tools, support, and freedom to be the professionals they’ve always wanted to be.
