Kate Coles

Founder & owner

Happily married with three beautiful adult children and while raising my children I managed to work full time as a Teacher and then retrained in Event Management and Outdoor Recreation. My Background is in Management and I have helped set up two Private Pre Schools, plus the Education part of NKBA and then growing Elite International School of Beauty and Spa Therapies in Wellington from 25 students to over 100 students. I left there in 2016 and after travelling for a bit, I went on to set up a Wellness Day Spa and this was the birth of Elderberry+Kate after much planning.

I thoroughly enjoy experiencing some of the treatments. My Go To at the moment is the the Light Stim Treatment with serums. It’s better than being in Fiji!

"I just wanted to thank you for giving myself and my Mum and Sister such a lovely treatment. We all really enjoyed it and will be sure to return again. It is so nice to have a relaxing experience like this together as we are not able to do things like this together often given that I am living overseas."​

"I just have to tell you, I have had hundreds of facials in my years, and was a weekly facial type of girl, and today’s facial was hands down the best facial I’ve ever had. My skin feels absolutely amazing, I even have comments afterwards commenting on my skins glow. My husband even commented that my skin was glowing and asked me if I was pregnant! I really appreciated Renee taking me through each step. I always enjoy hearing about the ingredients of a product and the effect it has on the skin. I will most certainly be back and suspect I will become a regular! Thank you so much again"
