If you have never been to Reno, let me tell you: it is nestled at the foot of the Sierra Nevada Mountains with easy access to the Pacific Crest Trail.   We are just 30 minutes from beautiful Lake Tahoe offering most any water sport you can imagine: fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding in addition to skiing and snowboarding ( where many Olympic athletes do their training).  We are the home of a dynamic art and event scene:  Artown, Hot August Nights, Street Vibrations, Rib Cook off,   Balloon Races – and that's just July – September!   Humidity is low – so temperatures remain (or at least feel) moderate

We encourage you to consider VA employment in Reno, NV, join a team that values a healthy home/work life balance and be rewarded by the role you'll play in keeping the promise to those who served.

Oh!  Did I mention that we don't pay state income tax in Nevada or our fabulous culture of all-you-can-eat sushi?
