Nicky Challies

Veterinary Nurse

Hi, I’m Nicky and I am a Veterinary Nurse here at Bayfair & Papamoa Vets.
I graduated with a Diploma in Veterinary Nursing from Massey University in 2003. After graduating I spent the next few years working as a Veterinary Nurse in Hawkes Bay and Australia. I started working at Papamoa Vets in June 2007.
I have worked at Bayfair and Papamoa Vets, in some shape or form for 12 years, doing Veterinary Nursing, running puppy preschools and administration. Taking maternity leave twice to have my two daughters.
I am looking forward to growing my fur baby family, once my human babies get a little bit older! But for now we are enjoying our cat Zed, that I rehomed from the clinic after he was brought in as a stray kitten, 9 years ago!!
