Dr. Qwynn Galloway-Salazar

Dr. Qwynn Galloway-Salazar is the founder of In Their Honor, LLC, and Co-Principal Investigator of the Brooklyn College Veterans History Project. From 2001-2006, she served in the United States Army. Her professional experience has spanned over 20 years of working with military and veteran communities in local, state, federal, and academic organizations, so she brings unique insights into connecting with veterans and enabling them to speak about challenging experiences during and after military service. Dr. Galloway-Salazar received 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 Minority Veterans of America (Vice Chair) and the Advisory Board of the Veterans Studies Association. 

Her doctoral dissertation entitled: “Post-9/11 Women Veterans’ Experiences Transitioning into the Civilian Workforce” shares the stories of women veterans and is permanently housed at the Military Women’s Memorial in Arlington, VA. She also served 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. After being inspired by her late friend, Dr. Kate Hendricks-Thomas, Qwynn started the Legacy Collection, where she collects oral history interviews of women Veterans. In the Summer of 2023, Qwynn will be a visiting scholar at Virginia Tech, sharing her expertise in the Veterans Oral History K-12 Institute.

Qwynn also serves as an End-of-Life Doula, Death Educator, and Qualitative Researcher. In addition, she is recognized as a thought leader in end-of-life care for veterans and their caregivers. The International End of Life Doula Association, End of Life University, the International Doulagivers Institute, the Elizabeth Dole Foundation, and the PsychArmor Institute have featured her recent work. As a result of her dedication, she was recognized as the 2022 State of Georgia’s Woman Veteran of the Year.
