In Their Honor

Qwynn Galloway-Salazar

A Veteran's military experience can influence how they approach the end of life. Let us honor them and create a sacred space where we offer compassionate care that truly makes a difference for Veterans and their families.

Meet Qwynn

QGS-Headshot_edited.jpg

Dr. Qwynn Galloway-Salazar is an End-of-Life Doula, Death Educator, Hospice Volunteer, and Qualitative Researcher. She is recognized as a thought leader in the space of end-of-life care for Veterans and their Caregivers. Her work has been featured by the International End of Life Doula Association, End of Life University, the International Doulagivers Institute, and PsychArmor: Behind the Mission. Qwynn graduated from Walden University with a doctoral degree in Industrial and Organizational Psychology.  

In recent years, she found her footing in the space of social change and began sparking conversations nationally and internationally related to suicide prevention and end-of-life care for our nation's Veterans. Shortly after catching the attention of Influencers in the Death Doula Movement, she launched In Their Honor, LLC. In this capacity, she collaboratively works and inspires communities, End-of-Life professionals, and organizations to develop and implement training and technical assistance programming to improve support services to Veterans and their families. 

Qwynn, an Army Veteran, spouse of a retired combat Veteran, and mom to rockstar daughters, understands how one's military experience can have long-term impacts on one's life and the lives of those caregiving. Most importantly, she has gained valuable insight into how these experiences can resurface and how we must collectively stand in the death and dying space and compassionately companion those who have served. 

Previously, Qwynn served as the Co-Director of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's (SAMHSA) Service Members, Veterans, and their Families Technical Assistance Center. Throughout her two decades of service, she has been steadfast in working on local, state, and national initiatives enhancing the quality of life and well-being of our Nation's Military and Veterans. She currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Minority Veterans of America and the American Association of Suicidology. Qwynn also serves on the Advisory Board of the Veterans Studies Association. Additionally, she is the Co-Principal Investigator for the City University of New York's Brooklyn College: Veterans History Project. Her research interests include death, dying, and end-of-life care for Veterans from the lens of the compassionate cities/communities approach.
