FOUNDER + CREATIVE DIRECTOR
MEET | PAMELA SCHEIN MURPHY
Pamela Schein Murphy sees the world through the eyes of a native New Yorker — she was born and raised in Manhattan. Her ability to combine sensibility with vision planted the seed for The Select 7.
Drawn to the excitement and fast pace of the media world, Murphy pursued literature, psychology and women’s studies at the University of Rhode Island and later earned her Master’s Degree in Magazine Journalism from New York University. Working her way through the ranks of print media, she worked at some of the publishing world’s biggest women’s magazines, such as Fitness, Mirabella, Elle, and Glamour.
After successfully climbing the masthead, Murphy created her first independent venture, a national lifestyle magazine called Madison. For readers with an appreciation of the arts, culture, photography, and architecture, the magazine covered book reviews, travel, food, fashion, commerce, and entertainment. She went on to add Film Producer (with actor Ed Burns) and Marketing Director (of her husband, Chef Marc Murphy’s restaurant group) to her resume, and also ran The R.E.S.T. Initiative, a non-profit organization that brought massage therapies directly into chemotherapy treatment rooms, which she started after completing her own battle with breast cancer. Today, the program runs at the NYU Clinical Cancer Center as part of the alternative medicine practice.
Most importantly, Murphy is the principle of The Select 7, a platform imagined from years of travel, research, recommendations, and list-keeping. The Select 7 is a curated exploration into the worlds of philanthropy, food, beauty + wellness, travel, fashion, interior design and social media by some of the most interesting people out there. The site unlocks the worlds of today’s top tastemakers, acting as an exchange hub for people who want both the aspirational and the totally obtainable to share their finds, recommendations, and ideas by inviting you into one person’s world for seven days.
Murphy lives in New York City with her husband Marc and their two children, Campbell and Callen.
