Jessalyn Weir
Family Physician in Cold Lake
Hometown: Regina, SK

My name is Jessalyn, and I’m a family physician in my first year of practice in Cold Lake, AB. I was born and raised in Regina, Saskatchewan, in a family of five. Growing up, some of my best memories revolved around camping in the prairies over the summer months, and skiing in the Rockies over the winter months. I had a strong passion for learning from a young age, and knew I wanted a career where the learning never ends. I decided to pursue a career in medicine, starting with undergraduate training at the University of Regina in Kinesiology. I eventually went on to graduate from University of Saskatchewan College of Medicine in 2016.
