Patient Care Coordinator

Val began working for Kevin G. Murphy & Associates in January 2017.  She enjoys interacting with patients and developing strong relationships with them.  For her, the most important aspect  of what she does at our office is to ensure you are comfortable and her favorite part of the day is when a patient leaves smiling. 

Val is a HUGE Monkees fan and an old soul when it comes to her musical interests. Depending on the season, you can find her either pitching horseshoes at her Horseshoe League or cheering wildly at a Washington Capitals game. Val also enjoys spur of the moment trips with her boyfriend, spending time with family and friends, and Joe Corbi’s Cheezee bread.
