Allerchic for Eczema and Allergy

Allerchic for Eczema and Allergy

Hello beautiful people!

I’m Steph.

Married to the love of my life (sorry Tatum)

Blessed mumma of two amazing little people; Batbaby & the Scientist Princess.

Snort laugher, lover of a good LOL, possibly addicted to chocolate (I’m trying to be good Sarah Wilson), always desperately seeking coffee! 

Nurse of 20+yrs working in Kids ward, Emergency & Infection control. Eczema & Allergy advocate & educator with big dreams to change the world through my business Allerchic.

Also, spreader of Autism awareness & acceptance.

Would love to think my life flows like that of Carol Brady, but it’s probably more like a married with children version of Bridget Jones Diary.

Lets learn & Laugh together x
