Zoe Murphy Headshot
Senior Program Manager

Zoë (Sullivan-Blum) Murphy has been with the CTC-SRH since early 2022. She is the project manager for the Drop-in Active Learning Sessions (DIALS) and supports special projects as needed. She also provides speaker support and technical support and assistance for the national conference.

Prior to joining the CTC-SRH, Zoë worked at the University of Kansas Medical Center (KUMC) as a research assistant on a perinatal smoking cessation study with KUMC’s Department of Population Health and OBGYN clinics. She executed a study project start-up and served as the primary study coordinator, directing recruitment, enrollment, and management of study participants. During her time at KUMC, Zoë also worked on a study coordinating HPV vaccination efforts with HIV PrEP patients in the Kansas City metropolitan area.

Zoë’s first career was as a 911 dispatcher. Due to a desire to affect more macro-level change, Zoë moved on to get her MPH, which led her to her roles at KUMC and the CTC-SRH. In addition to the CTC-SRH, Zoë also works with the Peer Recovery Center of Excellence (PR CoE) at the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC). She was the project manager for the state budget analysis report for the Optimizing Recovery Funding (ORF) initiative of the PR CoE, which was an analysis of how states spend SAMHSA dollars on recovery support services (RSS), with recommendations on best practices and strategies for states in providing financial support for RSS and recovery community organizations (RCOs).

Zoë earned her Master of Public Health (MPH) from the University of Kansas Medical Center and her Bachelor of Arts (BA) in English and Anthropology from Skidmore College. She also minored in Spanish. Zoë is a certified Family Planning Health Worker (FPHW). She worked on a study coordinating HPV vaccination efforts with HIV PrEP patients in the Kansas City metropolitan area as her MPH capstone work, which resulted in several publications. She also has publications resulting from her work at KUMC on smoking cessation with perinatal women. 

Zoë currently lives in Port Orchard, Washington with her husband and their dog. Zoë was a dancer for 16 years and would love to return to dancing someday. For now, Zoë can usually be found camping, hiking, kayaking, reading, or hanging out at any coffee shop or brewery she can find.
