About Saint Simons Island, GA
The largest of the Golden Isles, St. Simons captivates visitors with gorgeous scenery and fascinating history. This beautiful beach town is located just an hour from larger cities of Savannah and Jacksonville, FL. There’s lots to do on the island including multiple golf courses, tennis courts, miles of nature and bike trails with majestic live oaks, and countless shops and restaurants are just a few of the local attractions. The island is also rich in history with sites including the St. Simons Island Lighthouse (a working lighthouse in operation since 1872), the Bloody Marsh, Fort Frederica National Monument, historic Christ Church, and antebellum plantations dotting the island.
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.
