Unleashing a Veterinary Revolution: Meet the Dynamic Duo Transforming Urgent Care for Pets!


In the heart of the bustling Washington DC metro area, where the pace of life often matches the rapid beat of the city’s pulse, two compassionate souls came together with a vision—a vision to create a haven for pets in need of urgent medical attention. This is the story of ACHIEVE Veterinary Urgent Care, a beacon of hope amidst the chaos, founded by Dr. Stevie Jones Jr. and Dr. Jasmine Nolan.

The genesis of ACHIEVE Veterinary Urgent Care stemmed from a shared realization—a profound understanding of the gaps that existed within the realm of veterinary care. Dr. Jones, a seasoned general practitioner with a penchant for surgery, internal medicine, and pediatrics, and Dr. Nolan, an experienced emergency veterinarian with a passion for laceration repair, bore witness to the challenges faced by both primary care veterinarians and pet owners alike.

The wait times at emergency facilities were staggering, often stretching for hours on end, while primary care clinics found themselves inundated with appointments booked weeks in advance. It was a stark reminder of the disparity in access to timely care—a gap that Dr. Jones and Dr. Nolan were determined to bridge.

With hearts full of compassion and minds brimming with determination, Dr. Jones and Dr. Nolan embarked on a mission—to create a solution that would offer prompt, superior quality care tailored to the needs of pets and their parents. Thus, ACHIEVE Veterinary Urgent Care was born—a sanctuary where pets could receive the attention they deserved without enduring the long wait times synonymous with emergency facilities.

But their vision extended beyond just providing medical care; it encompassed a commitment to transparency, trustworthiness, and efficiency. Inspired by the urgent care centers for humans, ACHIEVE Veterinary Urgent Care aimed to offer a seamless experience—a link between primary care veterinarians and 24-hour emergency hospitals.

For Dr. Jones, a native of Danville, Virginia, the journey to founding ACHIEVE Veterinary Urgent Care was a testament to his lifelong dedication to the field of veterinary medicine. Graduating cum laude from Virginia State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in agriculture, concentrating in pre-veterinary medicine, and completing his Doctorate at Tuskegee University College of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Jones brought with him a wealth of experience and a deep-rooted passion for his craft.

Beyond his professional endeavors, Dr. Jones found solace in spending time with his family, pursuing his hobbies, which includes designing bespoke bowties (get yours here:, and giving back to his community. An active member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., Dr. Jones remained committed to making a positive impact in every aspect of his life.

For Dr. Nolan, a native of Beltsville, Maryland, the journey to founding ACHIEVE Veterinary Urgent Care was one fueled by determination and a relentless pursuit of excellence. Leaving home to pursue her Bachelor of Science at Delaware State University and later traveling down south to obtain her Master of Science and Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Tuskegee University, Dr. Nolan’s academic journey instilled in her a sense of resilience and a commitment to making a difference.

Returning home to Maryland upon graduation, Dr. Nolan was determined to start a family and begin her career in emergency and urgent care medicine. Her favorite cases, she often remarked, were those that involved any type of laceration repair—a testament to her passion for hands-on, impactful work.

Together, Dr. Jones and Dr. Nolan embarked on a remarkable journey—one fueled by their unwavering dedication to the well-being of animals and their families. Their clinic, ACHIEVE Veterinary Urgent Care, stands as a testament to their shared values of compassion, integrity, and innovation—a beacon of hope for pets in need and a shining example of what can be achieved when passion meets purpose.
