Our Team

Nikki Teesdale
Nikki came from Auckland, NZ in 2008 with her horse in tow! She qualified as a veterinary nurse and worked in NZ before jumping the ditch for more adventure. She has been nursing since 2002, working in small animal practices, and gaining specific experience in birds and exotic pets. She has always enjoyed surgery and emergency medicine on the floor. Here at Beenleigh, she manages our nursing team and she’s also our go-to for wildlife and exotics advice and care. She shares her house with her partner, two horses, a kelpie (who is training at 3 sheep trials) a staffy and seven pythons!
