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!
