Brandy Beausoleil, Veterinary Assistant

Moving to the island from a town near Montreal has been a dream come true for Brandy, her husband Tim, and their two sons, Tristan and Damian.

Having really enjoyed Biology class in High School, and combined with a strong love of animals, Brandy decided to pursue a career in the veterinary medical field and graduated with honours as a veterinary assistant. Much to our delight (and she says hers too!) she joined our New Perth Animal Hospital team. Since joining us, her four-legged family continues to expand and now includes a sweet Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Cleo and a very energetic Miniature Poodle aptly called Fury.

Brandy embraces our philosophy of lifelong learning and is enrolled in a veterinary technician course, which she hopes to complete while working with us. We wish her all the best with this course and plan to do everything we can to help her achieve her goals.

Kori Abrams, Registered Veterinary Technician

Kori tells us that she grew up in Northwestern Ontario surrounded by her pets, her neighbours’ pets and the local wildlife. From the time she was little, she knew she wanted to work with animals in some capacity.  She completed a degree in Natural Science at Lakehead University before moving to PEI with her family in 2014.

Kori graduated from the Dalhousie University Veterinary Technician program in 2020 and quickly passed the examination required to become a Registered Veterinary Technician.  Registered technicians are an invaluable addition to a veterinary team and we feel fortunate that Kori has joined our New Perth Animal Hospital family.  You may find Kori on the quiet side, but as you get to know her, you will learn to appreciate not only how knowledgeable she is but also that she has a wonderful sense of humour.  Kori currently lives with her cockatiel, Petrie, but hopes eventually to add more “critters” to the family.

Thea Jazbec, Registered Veterinary Technician

After a summer road trip with her father, when she was just 14 years old, Thea fell in love with PEI and decided that when she grew up, she would move from her birthplace of Montreal, make the island her home and live surrounded by her favourite animals, dairy cows.

From a very early age, Thea knew she wanted to help animals. Her mom was perhaps not as thrilled as Thea was, with the number of stray cats her young daughter managed to find and bring home!  In 2014, she made the big move to PEI where she continued to dream about a career with animals. In 2020, she took some courses at Holland College as a personal test to see whether she could return to school after more than 20 years of working full-time. Thea attended Oulton College in Moncton, where she graduated in 2022 with top honours, shortly thereafter passing the national exam to qualify as a Registered Veterinary Technician.

After graduation she had the opportunity to work in a veterinary clinic in Labrador City. Thea tells us that, ‘now that she is back home on PEI and working with creatures big and small, she is living her dream’. Fur Mama to two Dachshunds, Mila and Ollie, she also dreams of owning a good sized property with a tiny house, chickens and goats. 

Thea is fluent in English, French and Croatian. She loves the outdoors and the beach is her happy place but Thea also enjoys a good nap!

Gracie Power, Veterinary Assisstant

Gracie was raised on the Island in the small community of Waterside, where she still lives to this day. Growing up, Gracie had a deep love for animals which only grew as she got older. From going farm to farm with her grandfather, to having a strong involvement with 4H, she was exposed to animals large and small.


At a very young age, Gracie began to dream of becoming a veterinarian. She came to New Perth Animal Hospital in her second year of the pre-vet program at UPEI as an aspiring vet student, looking to gain more experience in the field. After completing two years at UPEI, she was then accepted into the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program at the Atlantic Veterinary College in 2022.


When not working, Gracie loves spending time with her friends and family, and going for walks down to the beach with her black lab named Millie.
