Welcome, I am Dr. Sonia Legendre. I was born in Normandie, France and immigrated to the Cariboo region of BC in 1978 where I led a ranch life style tending cattle and sheep.
I knew as an early adult that my passion was in veterinary medicine. I attended Simon Fraser University where I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree and from there went to the Kelsey Institute graduating with an Animal Health Technology degree with honours.
I worked in a veterinary clinic as a Technologist but realized I wanted to advance my career and obtain a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. I attended the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and graduated in 1992.
My love for BC has never left me and I relocated from Alberta where I was a practice owner for over 11 years to living and working on Vancouver Island.
The summer of 2016 an opportunity arose to locum at the Vernon Veterinary Clinc. When an associate position opened up I jumped at the chance knowing that the clinic and team were a perfect fit for me.
I have been happily working as an associate at the Vernon Veterinary Clinic since December 2016 and look forward to many years with the team
