Dr. Joyce Tesarek, Veterinarian, Practice Owner

Dr. Joyce has been intrigued with animals for as long as she can remember. It was no surprise when she took that love to a new level and attended veterinary medical school after earning her BA in Biology and Chemistry from Gustavus Adolphus College. Although now primarily involved with overseeing operations at both Minnehaha Animal Hospital and partner clinic, Pet Doctors Animal Clinic, Dr. Joyce still regularly consults on hospital cases. She finds great rewards leading the teams with the mission to ensure that each pet has a healthy and comfortable life, and that clients feel appreciated, supported and empowered to care for their special pet.

Those that know Dr. Joyce will attest that she is a bundle of energy. One of her greatest passions (other than animals!) is celebrating her roots by participating in local and international Czech activities. She is also an active BNI member and volunteer, serving on the executive board of a number of organizations, including the Affiliated Emergency Veterinary Services, The Animal Care Foundation, South Chicago Avenue Business Alliance, Czech and Slovak Sokol Minnesota, and the Czech and Slovak Cultural Center.

She likes to spend any other free time traveling, gardening and hanging out with family and friends. She lives in Minneapolis with her husband, Norm and cats, Panda, Radar, Kitty and Margo.

Dr. Bobbi Soule, Veterinarian, Medical Director

Dr. Bobbi Soule earned her Bachelor of Science at the University of Notre Dame in 2000. While there, she was actively involved in the marching, concert and jazz bands playing her trumpet. She next went to the University of Minnesota and got her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2004. Right after graduation, she began work at a clinic in Bloomington. She was there for seven years. She started working for Minnehaha Animal Hospital and Pet Doctors near the end of 2011. Her special interests include feline medicine, soft tissue surgery and internal medicine.

At home, she has a yellow lab named Miles and three cats, Koa, Madeline and James. In her free time she enjoys listening to, and playing, music.

Dr. Kevin Thorsgaard, Veterinarian

Dr. Kevin Thorsgaard joined the team at Minnehaha Animal Hospital in February 2013Kevin grew up in Bloomington, and earned a Biology degree at St. Olaf College in Northfield, where he learned it was possible to combine his interests in science, medicine and animals into one rewarding career. He attended the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine, graduating in 1990. Since then, working in private practices in the Twin Cities has given him the opportunity to meet thousands of people and help them take care of their special pets.

Kevin enjoys the challenge of solving medical mysteries, providing excellent preventative care, performing a variety of surgical procedures, and working closely with owners to give their pets the happiest, longest life possible.

He enjoys most outdoor activities and travel, especially with his wife of 25 years, their two children, and Shelties Chip and Diego.

Dr. Nikko Grossapoulos, Veterinarian

Dr. Nikko Grossapoulos (a.k.a. Dr. G) is a graduate of the University of Minnesota Veterinary College. Prior to this, he earned his bachelor’s degree in Biology and Theatre Arts.

Before returning to pursue a degree in veterinary medicine, he was a small business owner for nearly a decade in his hometown of Chicago. Managing a successful business brought him valuable skills in client communication and how to manage a successful team.

Outside of veterinary medicine, he enjoys spending time with his husband and two daughters ages 8 and 5. Whenever they can, they take retreat to their cottage along the Mississippi River, just over the Minnesota border in the driftless region. There he enjoys fishing, gardening and spending quality family time where cell phones get no reception. He has been thrilled to finally become a practicing veterinarian after many years of hard work. Although returning to school was challenging with a growing family, he says that, “Veterinary medicine is an exciting field to be a part of and it has been truly rewarding to model to my children how you can be in love with your education and profession.”
