Happily Married with three beautiful Adult Children and while raising my children I always 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 was approached by Jude Campbell to set up a Spa and together we planned and created Elderberry + Kate!
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 studied at Georgina Price College of Beauty Therapy in Galway, Ireland in 1998, then followed with 3 months at the Steiner Academy in London prior to working on the cruise ships around the world. I have done many post-graduate courses in the beauty/massage field to keep up to date with current trends and to update my knowledge base. I chose to become a Beauty Therapist as I enjoy nurturing and caring for people. My specialty would most definitely be Bespoke Facials, not only from a skincare perspective but also from a holistic approach. I aim to bring my clients on a sensory journey when they enter my treatment room where they can leave their worries behind and allow me to nurture them for 60 or 90 minutes while in my treatment.
I'm excited to be back doing what I love! You'll find me in the glam room a lot, my passion is manicures and pedicures plus nail art and I love doing clients makeup using the wonderful Curtis collection! Also facials, spray tans and reflexology are my strengths. I'd love to see you sometime.
I have just returned from my big OE working in chilly England and traveling around the hot spots of Europe. I am passionate about the Beauty industry and love meeting new people. I am loving my role as the receptionist at E+K. My go to at the moment is the Curtis collection makeup.
My strengths are Facials, Massage and Hot Stone Massage. Pop in and Introduce yourself or book online for a fabulous Treatment.
I’ve been the beauty industry for over 15 years + trained here in Wellington where I gained International qualifications. I’ve worked in a variety of spas and gained extensive post graduate training in all aspects of beauty + spa treatments. One of my biggest achievements was running my own successful salon for 7 years.
Client care is hugely important to me which is why I feel at home here at Elderberry + Kate where we go above + beyond to look after YOU, the client! My passion lies in skincare, so nothing thrills me more to see amazing results + happy clients!
