As the daughter of former U.S. Representative and Mrs. Austin Murphy, Colleen has always demonstrated a clear commitment to the importance of voting and exercising one's right to participate in the electoral process. Citing her previous experience in elective office, her community involvement, and her years of teaching experience, Colleen stated that she has decided to take her desire to continue to serve the public in a new direction.

A graduate of California University of Pennsylvania, Colleen is a certified elementary and special education teacher. She has also obtained certification as a K-12 school principal.

Additionally, Colleen currently serves as the President of the Board of Directors of Mon Valley Community Health Services (a subsidiary corporation of Southwestern Pennsylvania Human Services).

Colleen grew up in the Mon Valley with her brother and four sisters. She and her husband have lived in the same neighborhood in the city of Monongahela for over 25 years. Working together on this election, as they have on so many projects, is a challenge that they welcome and embrace. Colleen noted that she looks forward to meeting, listening to, and speaking with voters as she campaigns for the office of Prothonotary of Washington County.
