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 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.
Leigh Pusateri, DVM
Dr. Leigh Pusateri joins KMVS with over 20 years of small animal clinical experience. She obtained her veterinary medical degree from The Ohio State University in 1994, was proclaimed the Outstanding Small Animal Intern at the North Carolina State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital in 1995, and practiced small animal emergency medicine at the Anne Arundel Veterinary Emergency Clinic until October of 2000. Since then she has worked in small animal general practice, provided veterinary services for a non-profit animal shelter and consulted for Center Pet Pharmacy.
We are privileged to have her on board!
Client Service Specialist
Melissa is pleased to join the Keysville Mobile Vet team as of September, 2016! With an Associate's Degree in Early Childhood Education, she has been working in a Client Service role for over 15 years, 3 of those in veterinary hospitals and emergency clinics. Her strongest suits are providing professional and compassionate care to our animal loving clients on the phone and online, as well as managing our medical records and follow up calls. As an animal lover herself, she thoroughly enjoys in-home care for her cat. When she’s not assisting our clients, she spends time with her family and enjoys watching her 2 children play sports.
Originally from California, Joan has been a small animal veterinary technician for 30 years and was a registered Veterinary Technician (RVT) in the state of California. A few years ago, she moved to the East Coast to be closer to family.
In her leisure time she enjoys hanging out with her 2 dogs, cooking, hiking and she crochets – dog sweaters amongst other things!
Relief Client Services Specialist
We are very fortunate to have Rhonda on staff to help when Melissa is taking a well-deserved break. Rhonda retired from a career as business analyst in 2018. She is an avid animal lover as well as a master watershed steward and environmental enthusiast.
Relief Veterinary Assistant
Born on a farm in Carroll County, MD, Chrissy has spent most of her life here, except for a few years in Ohio, where she obtained formal training as a veterinary technician. When not on the job, she enjoys the beach, camping, and spending time with her children and family, including a myriad of animals. We are blessed to have Chrissy help with our Carroll Vista Nail Trim Clinic each month.

“We would highly recommend KMVS to anyone looking for outstanding care for their pet(s).”
“Rufus, Lulu, and Natasha think it's great that they no longer have to fight to get in a carrier to go to the vets. Dr. Cornett and Jen come to them for monthly nail trim and their annual check ups. "Mom" especially thinks it's great!”
— Nancy Norris
“I became acquainted with Keysville Mobile Veterinary Services and Dr. Carolyn Cornett about two years ago when I responded to an advertisement. I was delighted to learn that she routinely made "house calls". I found Dr. Cornett to be very professional knowledgeable and reasonably priced.”
“When my 12-year old dog "Tassie" had a stroke last year after normal business hours, Dr. Cornett responded immediately dispensing multiple injections, took blood samples and started an IV. She returned late that evening, initiated another IV treatment and counseled me on my various options allowing me to select my preferred choice. It was obvious to see that Dr. Cornett was sensitive and lovingly cared for Tassie and I am honored to share my unqualified endorsement. On Tassie's recent birthday, Dr. Cornett showed up to deliver a birthday gift for Tassie - a new toy!”
— Richard French
“My prayers were answered the day my Shadow had her first appointment with Dr. Carolyn Cornett.
While numerous other veterinarians could not tell me what was wrong with Shadow, Dr. Cornett got Shadow's diagnosis of Addison's Disease correctly on the first visit. The other veterinarians did not even think of testing Shadow for this medical condition. I can only speak in superlatives when talking about Dr Cornett. She is the best, most caring, most skillful and most accommodating veterinarian to which I have ever taken a pet! Dr. Cornett provides the highest quality care in the most compassionate matter to both the pet and the owner. Thorough exams and taking time to explain each and every possible treatment option is Dr. Cornett's normal style of practicing medicine. This past fall I moved out of Carroll County to another state. I know one of the greatest losses for both my pets and myself is the lost of Dr. Carolyn Cornett as our veterinarian. There is no way I will never find a Vet as wonderful and knowledgeable as Dr. Carolyn Cornett. Carroll County is extremely lucky to have her.”
