About the Owners
Catherine and Kyle are the current-day Brady Bunch with a twist. These parents of seven ( 6 girls and one boy) met at the University Of Washington School of Medicine-Medex. After becoming classmates and neighbors, Kyle with his three girls and Catherine with her daughter and son were married and welcomed two new additions to this Mahaffey Clan.
Navigating the ins and outs of a large blended family is not their only superpower.
Kyle is a Navy veteran who served honorably in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Working previously as an orthopedic trauma hospitalist, He is now in private practice as a neurosurgical PA-C, which offers considerably more reliable family time. Kyle is primarily the construction manager and public relations liaison, but you will occasionally find him in the kitchen trying his hand at some soapy creations.
Catherine has a background in emergency medicine as a paramedic and volunteer firefighter. She found a balance to the chaos in holistic bodywork as a massage therapist. As a therapist, she has been creating and formulating skincare for almost twenty years. After graduating from the UW, Catherine pursued a career in family practice serving in community health. A desire to reach the underserved local community is the foundation for the Celtic Clan Soapery mission-driven business model.
Facing the worldwide pandemic as a family with special medical needs has brought new challenges and a new business. You can follow the Mahaffey Clan journey in more detail on their blog Celtic Clan Soapery~ Beyond the Suds.
