Mikayla Morell is a health and wellness writer who is passionate about spreading reliable, accessible, and informative health information to people of all backgrounds and identities.
Mikayla has an extensive background in healthcare as a home health aide, medical scribe, and phlebotomist. In these roles, she recognized that her patients were eager to learn more about their health but they didn’t always have the information, education, or resources to do so.
Mikayla became a medical writer to help educate and inform her readers with content that translates complex medical language into language that is easy to understand. She believes that the key to better health is education and accessibility. As someone who suffered from a delayed diagnosis at a young age, she understands the importance of health education. She has made it her mission to help others get the information they need so they can feel empowered to take charge of their health.
Mikayla has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from the University of the Arts. In her free time, she writes fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. Her creative work has been published in Underground Pool, Merrimack Review, and Mosaic Art & Literary Journal.
