Hi, I’m Megan Mikhail. I started writing at http://www.megandaviamikhail.com in 2019. I’m a licensed attorney turned freelance writer. My intention for my writing is to learn and share knowledge that explores the idea of keen living.
My work focuses on topics including:
- Health & Wellness
- Well-Being for Attorneys
- Book Reviews & Reading Recommendations
- Inspirational People & Quotes
These topics are explored with the purpose of keen living. To develop a sharp, discerning, sensitive, perceptive, clear, observant, and ultimately keen way of living, join me here to explore and learn together.
