Ms. Murphy is a certified personal trainer and the owner of BFit & Well, a functional movement fitness center tailored to the needs of older adults. She entered the fitness industry in the late 1990s after studying at the University of Alaska, and was immediately drawn to the challenges and rewards of working with seniors.

In 1998, Ms. Murphy was named as the Fitness Manager of the Anchorage Senior Activity Center, where she spent the next eight years developing and administering a broad range of activity, preventive wellness and functional strength and mobility programs. She was named as the Lifelong Fitness Alliance's Alaska Fitness Ambassador in 2006, underscoring her commitment to helping seniors feel safe, welcome and knowledgeable in fitness classes and gyms. Since 2006, Ms. Murphy has maintained involvement as the owner of BFit & Well, where she focuses on providing individual and small-group fitness programs, including a nationally-recognized boxing program for adults with Parkinson's disease.
Ms. Murphy has been recognized by local news media for her accomplishments as a business owner in 2019 and 2020, and she continues to serve her clients with a full slate of mobile and distance training programming. She attributes her success in the fitness industry to her patience, willingness to meet her clients halfway, and her integrity as a business owner.
