Sunridge Veterinary Team
Dr. Sara Watt
Growing up on an apricot orchard in the Okanagan Valley, surrounded by border collies, horses, cats and rabbits, Dr Sara Watt discovered her love for animals at an early age. After her graduation from Seaton Secondary, she flew away to Newfoundland to complete her bachelor of science. From there she moved to the prairies to complete her veterinary medical degree at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine. After spending her first year as a veterinarian working abroad in New Zealand, she moved back to Vernon and has continued to work in the Okanagan Valley ever since. Dr Watt has patiently awaited the retirement of Dr Chris Schenk and feels very fortunate and excited to take over his practice at the Sunridge Veterinary Clinic. She looks forward to continuing to practice exceptional and personalized veterinary care for the wonderful clients and their furry friends in her hometown.
Hi, I'm Aileigh! I graduated from the Veterinary Animal Hospital Assistant program at Center for the Arts and Technology in 2023. Sunridge welcomed me with open arms and I'm honored to begin my career with them. It's been an amazing experience, my passion became a reality and nothing beats helping animals every single day. I can't wait to continue my education and grow in the veterinary industry!
Hi! I’m Erica. I have always had a love for animals and after high school I decided to attend Thompson Rivers University and enrol in the Animal Health Technology program. Shortly after graduating, I moved to the Seattle area and worked in a small animal clinic for five years. After moving back to Vernon in 2003, I started working at Sunridge Veterinary Clinic where I love the variety that my job provides. No two days are the same!
Hi! I’m Marcelle. I attended U of A in Edmonton and received a BSc in Zoology, which I found very fascinating and challenging. My interest in animals led me to take Animal Health Technology at NAIT. I started in a small animal clinic in Edmonton and then moved to the sunny Okanagan with my family. I have been working at Sunridge Veterinary Clinic since 2006 and take great pride in looking after your pet and making their stay here as comfortable as possible. I love my job and all the interesting work we do here!
