Home | Marissa Nikora Marissa Nikora Ara Rau Employment Navigator Marissa connects with people and industry to help build pathways. She loves having the ability to connect those that otherwise would not be connected and creating meaningful conversations that lead to positive actions and outcomes that can benefit many. Marissa loves living in the Western Bay for the combination of mountains, ocean and fun activity vibes this place gives! She also enjoys Bay oval, because who doesn’t love a little day party whilst watching the cricket? In her spare time she is running an active house hold with 2 little girls and a puppy. They love to share food together and enjoy doing this in different settings with live music. Marissa and her whanau live in Maungatapu so paddle boarding & crab spotting are a daily for the Nikora’s.
