about me
Caitlyn Dolan is a blogger, ICU nurse, and interior design student.

Hello! My name is Caitlyn and I am a twenty-something-year-old blogger, ICU nurse, and interior design student. I started this blog back in 2016 as a creative outlet to teach others about green beauty and plant-based living. Since then, I have gotten married and bought/renovated a historic home (read more about that here) which deepened my love for home design. Recently, I started interior design school which has been a dream come true. I feel like I’m living the best of both worlds right now: a life-saving trauma nurse one half of the week and an inspired interior design student the other half. 

Here’s a little about me:

  • I like to consider myself a genuinely kind person.
  • I LOVE animals (especially my 2 dogs) and think they are more like us than they are different.
  • I am technically a pescetarian but follow a vegan diet for the majority of my meals.
  • Half my week is spent working as a registered nurse in a trauma ICU. 🚑
  • The other half of my week is spent as an interior design student! 
  • My husband and I are high school sweethearts and got married on Maui in 2019. ❤️
  • I consider the Hawaiian islands my second home. 🌺
  • I’m a retired cheerleader with 2 college national titles under my belt. 😎
  • Nothing brings me more joy than helping others or making them feel better about themselves.
  • I am so excited to have built up the courage to launch this blog and start connecting with you all!
