Derek Shaak

Client Care Supervisor

I grew up in Vienna, VA before heading down to Newport News for my college years at Christopher Newport University, where I studied Communications. Before coming to Friendship at the end of 2020, I was on the management team of small dog daycare, boarding, and training company in Northern Virginia. It was a position that really deepened my appreciation for pet care and inspired me to pivot into the veterinary world. Reliable client service has always been a priority for me throughout my career, and I’m truly privileged to have a passionate and energetic team around me that shares the same client service values and goals.
I currently reside in Alexandria, VA with my partner and our 12-year-old Pit Bull. When I’m not spending my time with them outside of work, I try to find room for as many tabletop games and scary movies as I can justify.

Friendship provides state of the art, comprehensive services for our clients and patients. But, more than that, we provide a caring team who understand the unique human-animal bond. View Our Services
