Committed to care of the soul, it gives her a sense of purpose and gratitude knowing that she is able to connect and touch the lives of so many.
"After losing my only daughter Shannon in 1992 to illness, my soul died with her," Dr. Murrell-Powell said. "During my grieving process I was seeking renewal of my own soul. After hearing a speaker give an inspiring message, the minister mentioned that she was also a chaplain at a local hospital. "This is how I learned of the CPE program."
