Prior to her appointment to this position in 2011, she served as Commonwealth Medicine’s Vice Chancellor and Chief Operating Officer for five years.

Previously, Ms. Murphy was appointed as Vice President of St. Margaret's Hospital for Women in Dorchester, Mass., to create a financially viable vision and business plan for redeveloping the hospital campus and establishing a successor corporation when the inpatient hospital closed on that site. She became the founding president of St. Mary’s Center for Women and Children in 1993.

Ms. Murphy began her professional career in the Massachusetts Department of Correction (DOC). During her 11-year tenure, she held various roles and ultimately became Superintendent of the Massachusetts Correctional Institution at Framingham, the sole women's prison in the state. She went on to serve as First Deputy Commissioner for the Massachusetts Department of Revenue.

Ms. Murphy holds a Master of Public Administration from Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, an honorary Doctor of Public Administration from Curry College, and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Massachusetts Boston.
