Kit Lill (B.V.Sc.)
Veterinarian and Owner of Bayvet

 I qualified in South Africa in 1985 and  owned 2 practices there before emigrating to New Zealand with my family and purchasing Bayvet clinic from Allan Rapley in 2001. I am married to Glenda, we have  2 children, Kate and Peter, and two pets -  a Jack Russell and an Abbysinian that rules the roost. I am interested in orthopaedic surgery and internal medicine. I love working at Bayvet and interacting with our wonderful clients and their owners.

Natalie Oleksy
Head Nurse
I relocated to New Zealand with my husband and two girls in 2009 and love living on the Shore. 
After qualifying as a Vet Nurse through Vet Nurse Plus, I joined the team at Bayvet in 2016. 
I have a great love for both cats and dogs and ensuring their welfare.  I love meeting our clients and ensuring they get great service to look after their fur babies. 
I have an adopted cat from the SPCA called Peggy and a beautiful Bichon Frise cross called Daisy, who is amazingly clever and thinks she is one of my human children. 
Nicola Fleming
Theatre Nurse/ Cattery Nurse

I joined Bayvet in September 2014. I am a qualified Vet Nurse and bring over twenty seven years experience of working in small animal practices, the last ten years of which were spent working in feline only vet clinics.

I am extremely passionate about all animals and operate a cat grooming and pet-minding service in and around the Helensville area.

Jacquie Langley
Evening Nurse

My family and I came to New Zealand 10 years ago and brought with us our big ginger cat and West Highland White Terrier. I studied Vet nursing with Otago Polytech and have worked at Bayvet for 6 years now.

I have a special interest in cats and have many of my own.

We have also had retired greyhounds over the past 15 years and believe that everyone should look into adopting pets as a first option.

Karyn Hopkins
Evening Receptionist / Nurse

I have been a qualified vet nurse for over 20 years, working at Bayvet since 1996. I studied canine bahaviour at Massey University and actively use the information every day because I have four dogs - two German Shepherds and two Papillon x Chihuahuas. I also regularly take one of my German Shepherds to Shutzhund training. I am passionate about the impact of a dogs behaviour on both its human family and its own health. I also own a lovely and affectionate cat called Murphy.
