Veterinary Career

After completing high school Sierra pursued her pre-med education at St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia, Canada, where she studied for a Bachelor of Science. While still at college Sierra worked as a veterinarian assistant at Oakley Vet Services, the clinic run by her mother. She helped with various tasks such as administering vaccines, performing physical exams, and assisting with surgeries. She also traveled with her mother to remote locations in Yukon and Alaska, where they provide veterinary care to animals that are not easily accessible by conventional means. Sierra completed her undergrad in May 2019 and decided to continue her education in veterinary medicine. She applied and got accepted to Murdoch University, where she completed her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree.

Sierra also appeared in the television series ” Dr. Oakley, Yukon Vet” hosted by her mother. The show documents the adventures and challenges of her mother and family as they treat animals in the northern wilderness. The show premiered in April 2014 and has aired 12 seasons so far. Sierra often appears on the show as her mother’s sidekick, helping with various cases and showing her skills and knowledge as an aspiring veterinarian.

Her Siblings Maya and Willow Oakley

Sierra has two younger sisters, Maya Oakley is a middle child, born on December 02, 1998.  And Willow Oakley is the youngest one. Like Sierra, her sisters including the youngest Willow are passionate about helping their mother. From a young age, Maya and Sierra have been a sidekick to their mother’s veterinarian works.  During summers, the two spend most of their time working behind the scenes and for the camera alongside Dr. Michelle Oakley. Both daughters have appeared in the Nat Geo Wild show “Dr. Oakley Yukon Vet.”

Evidently, Maya likes to care for and treat animals however she finds her career passion elsewhere. She studied criminal justice at the University of Western Ontario. Unlike Sierra who sees herself working in Yukon, Maya is critical of cold and wants to move to a hotter place. During high school, Maya and Sierra shared the same hockey team (GCDS Mustangs) where she guarded the net.

It is an early call to judge Willow whether or not she will follow in her mother’s footsteps. So far signs are good, she gets along and helps her mother with animals.

“Dr. Oakley, Yukon Vet” and Controversy

Sierra Oakley and her siblings literally grew in front of the camera. But being the eldest of three, Sierra was pushed into the limelight earlier.

The inclusion of family time with her daughters and husband makes it possible for viewers to have a peek at her family life. However, not everything comes with welcoming hands and the Oakley family has faced first hand. Sierra Oakley had her first hunt, a male Caribou during a family excursion. The part was documented in Season 1, Episode 3 entitled “One Angry Muskox.” In the episode, as a passage of rite from father to daughter, Shane Oakley teaches Sierra to track and shoot her first kill. And, her mother and sisters were there for a moral boost. Sierra Oakley indeed tracks and shoots, securing the hunt of a Buck. However, it was not received well among viewers, especially since Dr. Oakley works in the clinic to save animals. Viewers were critical about how she could encourage and participate in the hunt.
