Freelance Journalist


Sexual Health, LGBTQ Wellness


Guilford College



S. Nicole Lane is a former writer with Verywell. She has been writing about health since 2014 after she began to speak out about her eight-year experience with vaginismus. Her email inbox was immediately full of patients who struggled with the same condition, unable to find any meaningful answers online. Since then, Lane has been publishing patient stories and intimate articles detailing medical procedure complications, side effects, and inequality in healthcare. 

Her interests lie heavily in amplifying LGBTQ voices, tackling so-called "taboos," and discussing the areas in which sex education have failed us. Her byline can be found on Healthline, MedTruth, SELF, and beyond. 


S. Nicole Lane received her Bachelor of Arts from Guilford College in North Carolina.
