Veterinarian and Owner
I am Dr. Mary Beth Soverns, a proud graduate of the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine in 1986. In 1988, my husband, Dr. Carroll Thumel, and I co-founded Countryside Veterinary Clinic. Throughout my career, my interests have centered around preventative care and internal medicine, with a keen focus on nutrition and behavior.
Our family legacy in veterinary medicine continues, as both Dr. Julie Thumel and Dr. Heath Thumel, our children, practice alongside us at Countryside Veterinary Clinic. On a different path, our youngest daughter, Paige, earned her master’s degree in Education and now teaches in Severna Park.
Outside of my professional life, I enjoy mountain biking with my family and indulging in gardening to connect with the great outdoors. My 14-year-old Norwich Terrier, "Forrest," is a regular presence in my office.
I am grateful for the fulfilling journey in veterinary medicine and the opportunity to contribute to the well-being of animals.
