Kayla Wright, FNP
Kayla attended Jacksonville State University in Jacksonville, Alabama for her bachelor’s, master’s, and doctorate degrees.
Practicing medicine is one of Kayla’s passions for a number of reasons. First, practicing medicine is never boring. Every day is different, and every patient is different. Medicine is challenging and continually helps her to learn and grow as a person and a professional. Kayla feels that it is a very rewarding profession. She says that it is such great feeling to be able to truly make an impact on another person’s life.
Kayla has a huge heart for missions, both local and global. She wanted to choose a profession where she could truly help others in all aspects of life. She became a nurse practitioner to make a difference and meet the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of her patients.
Kayla resides in Carrollton, Georgia. When she originally met Dr. Howell, they were working in Anniston, Alabama and she feels God put her in her path. She wanted to learn all that she could from Dr. Howell, so when Dr. Howell was looking for a nurse practitioner at her new practice, Kayla jumped at the chance and moved to Georgia. She had been looking to make a change and she took a leap of faith when this opportunity arose to work at It is Well Healthcare. She says she has loved every minute of it!
In Kayla’s free time, she loves to play the guitar, sing, travel, and tend to her honeybees. She loves spending time outdoors and is always up for an adventure.
