Ellen Wait Registered Nurse


Ellen believes that women run the world. A particular interest in women’s wellness led her to complete a Master’s degree in Nursing/Integrative Health; from there she went on to learn medical grade skin care therapies with the Esthetic Skin Institute.  Ellen believes that healthy skin is a reflection of healthy choices and that a few small lifestyle adjustments, along with targeted treatments and a consistent home care regimen, can have a powerful impact. She is a baby boomer now paying the price for a little too much fun in the sun, but is making the best of it and having fun every day helping her clients defy gravity.

Brandy Kramer LMP Fitness Consultant

Brandy grew up in southwest Montana and, after living all over the Pacific Northwest, has now happily settled in Coeur d’Alene. Whether hiking on Tubbs Hill, snowboarding at the closest beautiful mountain resort, or just having a cup of tea downtown, Coeur d’Alene has inspired Brandy to follow her dreams and weave her interests in fitness and massage into a perfect fit for The Queen Bee. Brandy launched her wellness website “Orchids and Iron” while working her private massage practice in Spokane and realizing that she wanted more for her clients.

She returned to school in Seattle to study Exercise Science and Wellness at Bastyr University, and has since also completed additional training in sports massage, Thai massage, reflexology and manual release therapy.  She continued her massage practice with the hopes of putting her past and present education and experience together to create the optimum wellness and education environment. Brandy believes that Health and Wellness is a lifestyle. She is excited to be your guide and your teacher on this journey, and we’re excited to welcome her to the Bee Team!
