Doctors

Dr. Brianna Cormier

Dr. Brianna (Bradford) Cormier was welcomed to the MAVA team in August 2021. Originally from Howard County, Dr. Cormier knew that she wanted to be a veterinarian since childhood. She worked in animal hospitals, took care of therapy horses, and participated in veterinary service projects throughout school. She earned her BA in Biology from the University of Pennsylvania and her DVM from Tuskegee University.

Specializing in small animal medicine and surgery, Dr. Cormier also brings expertise in small mammal medicine, treating exotics such as rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, rats, hamsters, gerbils, hedgehogs, degus, and chinchillas. She particularly enjoys client education and communication, working with clients to keep their pets healthy.

Dr. Cormier shares her home with two Catahoula Leopard dogs named Mable and Micah, a German Shorthaired Pointer named Tux, and Oliver, an orange tabby. When not working, she can be found running and hiking with her pups or playing basketball in the gym.

Dr. Alex Giosa

Dr. Alex Giosa joined Mount Airy Veterinary Associates in July 2021. The Howard County native developed her love of animals at the age of 4 while helping to care for her grandmother’s golden retriever. Her childhood dream of becoming a vet was realized when she recently graduated from Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine!

A Fear Free Certified veterinarian, Dr. Giosa also specializes in diet and nutrition issues, behavior, rehabilitation/pain management, and dentistry. She values developing relationships with her clients and working as a team with pet owners to improve the lives of her patients.

Dr. Giosa enjoys spending time outdoors – running, hiking, going to the beach, and supporting Baltimore sports teams. She is a pet parent to three dogs: mixed breed Rusty, Willy the hound mix, and Simera the Doberman.
