Nita is retired from 30 plus years in sales. At Tupperware World Headquarters she served as a VIP Manager and trainer for launching new products and establishing new programs. She served as Assistant Manager at Ashley’s Furniture before retiring from a sales and training position at Havertys.
More importantly, Nita received her God-given “master’s” in advocacy care after 38 years of being the sole advocate for her son, Lee Murphey. Lee had Duchennes Muscular Dystrophy.
Nita had to, and willingly did, put all formal education and career ambitions aside in order to give Lee the care he required. Her work in sales allowed her the flexibility to support herself while caring for Lee.
Nita is indeed a master at navigating the health care system which is evidenced by Lee living well past the years medically anticipated. And his was a life of quality; he even accomplished two majors.
In her words, “I am passionate about helping those who rely on TJC for assistance in their own advocacy efforts. I am grateful for the opportunity to do so.”
