After earning her BS in Chemistry, Dr. Jennifer Murphy went on to earn her Doctor of Optometry degree from the University of Missouri-St. Louis in 2003. After internships at The Koetting Associates, O’Donnell Eye Institute and Saint Louis Community Services, she began practicing in Florissant, MO and relocated to the Raleigh area in January 2005.
Over the past 14 years, Dr. Murphy has built relationships with patients and colleagues as part of the Sears Optical Advisory Council. Upon closure of the Sears location at Crabtree in October 2018, she decided to move her practice to Wake Forest and join McPherson Family Eye Care to provide comprehensive and urgent eye care.
In addition to visiting her beautiful hometown of Charleston, SC, she enjoys volunteering, reading and traveling abroad with her husband, Dan. They currently reside in Youngsville with their ever-changing menagerie of animals.
