Qwynn Galloway-Salazar, Ph.D.

Qwynn Galloway-Salazar, Ph.D., is the founder of In Their Honor, LLC, and Co-Principal Investigator of the Brooklyn College Veterans History Project. As a veteran of the United States Army (01-06) and spouse to a combat Veteran, she is passionate about conducting oral history interviews of Veterans, listening to how Veterans make meaning of their experiences and sharing this with larger audiences. She believes, as a society, the way we make sense of the Veteran experience shapes the care and support future generations of Veterans receive.

Qwynn’s recent work has focused on women veterans and transitions. Her doctoral dissertation entitled “Post-9/11 Women Veterans’ Experiences Transitioning Into the Civilian Workforce” landed her the opportunity to serve as a qualitative researcher for the FY21 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), § 9104, Study on Unemployment Rate of Women Veterans Who Served on Active Duty in the Armed Forces after September 11, 2001. While blending her head work with her heart work, she is developing a curriculum for End-of-Life Professionals supporting Veterans and their Caregivers while conducting interviews of Veterans receiving Hospice and Palliative Care. In addition, she is co-authoring a chapter about “Vicarious Trauma and Compassion Fatigue” in Veteran care providers. Previously, she served as the Co-Director of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration’s (SAMHSA’s) Service Members, Veterans, and their Families Technical Assistance Center. Her experience has spanned over 20 years working to support our Nation’s Military and Veteran communities.

Qwynn earned her Ph.D. from Walden University, specializing in Industrial and Organizational Psychology. In addition, she holds a Master of Arts degree in Professional Counseling and a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice. She serves on the Board of Directors for the American Association of Suicidology and the Advisory Board of the Veterans Studies Association.
