Learn More About the People Behind Keysville Mobile Veterinary Services

Keysville Mobile Veterinary Services is owned and operated by Carolyn Cornett, DVM, an experienced and compassionate veterinarian dedicated to enhancing the relationship between pets and their owners.

Carolyn Cornett, DVM

Practice Owner, Lead Veterinarian

Dr. Carolyn Cornett

Dr. Carolyn Cornett received a bachelor’s of science degree in biological sciences from Stanford University, where she graduated with honors. She earned her doctorate in veterinary medicine from the University of California at Davis, and completed a small animal medicine and surgery internship at Oradell Animal Hospital in Oradell, New Jersey.

Although Dr. Cornett has achieved top honors in academics and clinical training, her greatest joys in her more than 20-year veterinary career have been getting to know unique individuals—both two- and four-legged—and supporting the relationships between pets and owners. One of her proudest career accomplishments happened while doing volunteer work with the Office of Emergency Management in Bergen County, New Jersey. She developed the first emergency evacuation/preparedness plan to include animals in the state of New Jersey.

Dr. Cornett is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Maryland Veterinary Medical Association (MVMA), the Western Maryland Veterinary Medical Association (WMVMA), and the American Animal Hospital Association. Starting in June 2017 she is the representative for WMVMA to the MDVMA, which oversees legislative actions involving animal issues and the veterinary committee as a whole. Dr. Cornett has completed certification in the Fear Free Training Program.

When Dr. Cornett is not taking care of your lovable companions, she is enjoying her family and her own dog and two cats.
