Back before my skin mutinied.

Name’s Cally. I’m a mother to a toddler, wife, budding death doula, homesteading enthusiast, writer, sporadic blogger, and obsessive reader.

As chronic and severe eczema forced me to traverse away from the beaten path and detailed career plans (doctor of physical therapy), I now constantly reinvent my story. In a particularly low moment of never ending skin flares, I remembered my love for blogging, and thus started this blog (early 2018) to keep my hands busy from the ever-present eczema itch.

Other stuff:

  • BA in Biology, Swarthmore College, 2014
  • MS of Health Studies, MGH Institute of Health Professions, 2018
  • death doula trainee (journey is chronicled on instagram)
  • Jake and I watch a lot of horror together (I talk through it all). Here’s what we’ve seen.
Life with a skin condition and a lovely human bean.
