Dr. Morski worked at the Veterans Administration for nine years, and after leaving clinical medicine, she made it her mission to help fill the gap in the medical community's knowledge of psychedelics by educating her fellow physicians on the plant medicines and entheogens that could bring life-changing relief to their patients.

She started the Plant Medicine Podcast to bring scientific researchers, practitioners, and those who have been personally affected by the healing powers of these plants together to help educate the public on what is possible and help further research and decriminalization of these substances. She later founded The Psychedelic Medicine Association; a society of physicians, therapists, and health care professionals looking to advance their education on the therapeutic uses of psychedelic medicines.

The Psychedelic Medicine Association (PMA) is a public benefit corporation of healthcare providers aimed at bridging the gap between the advances taking place in the psychedelic research world and medical practitioners.
