— Dana Corriel, MD —
it started with a chance encounter

origins

It all started out with a stint away from clinical medicine, when I gave birth to my third son. I discovered there was an entire new world out there, that I had never had time to explore. Before I knew it, I was learning how to cook, design, entertain, and even build online. Before I knew it, I was expressing myself in my very own blog.

Was it scary? Absolutely. It was terrifying. But that’s how I got my start. And the rest.. is history.
