Dr. Dee Murphy

I am a veteran and a nurse. When I left the military, I, too, faced some challenges. I could not get a job as a nurse due to my military experience, so I sought work at a psychiatric VA Medical Center to bridge the gap between military and civilian life. Re-entry into CIVLANT wasn’t my only challenge – divorce, losing my business, losing my job, receiving a cancer diagnosis, experiencing multiple injuries with pain, struggling to lose weight, and battling unrelenting fatigue. One day, I decided I had had enough. I opened my heart and changed my mind, found some partners to work with, and followed the daily practices I now teach others.

I mentor remarkable women who have experienced and survived military life to navigate the chaos of change while rediscovering their joy and purpose. Together, we create a transformative journey that embraces their strengths and fosters resilience, enabling them to thrive in their post-service lives. I am honored to support them!

I teach women veterans to engage in self-assessment, reflection, and action as daily practices to navigate the chaos of change and rediscover their joy and purpose. By reflecting on their experiences, strengths, and goals, women veterans can identify areas that need attention and develop a plan to make positive changes. Through this process, you can gain clarity, confidence, and a sense of purpose, which can help you overcome the challenges of transition and thrive in your new life.
