Meet the Program Director

Suzanne Holroyd, MD

Dr. Holroyd has been enthusiastically involved in psychiatry residency education for over 25 years. Trained in general psychiatry and geriatric psychiatry at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, she joined the University of Virginia Department of Psychiatry in 1992, creating an ACGME accredited fellowship program in Geriatric Psychiatry, and served as Program Director of that fellowship from its inception in 1995 to 2013. She also served as Vice Chair for Education, overseeing the general psychiatry residency program, fellowships in child and adolescent, forensic and geriatric psychiatry, as well as medical student education. She has won local and national awards for her teaching, as well as recognized for her clinical excellence nationally, having been named a Best Doctor and an America's Top Doctor for many years.

Dr. Holroyd decided to leave the University of Virginia to come to Marshall Psychiatry to serve as Chair and Program Director in 2013. She understood the need for additional psychiatry training programs in West Virginia, as it is an underserved area, and fell in love with the people and region. She was impressed with the commitment and support from the Dean of the School of Medicine for the department of psychiatry and wanted to be part of its growth and development. We are pleased to be a close knit and friendly department, and enjoy teaching and working with our residents!


Meet the Program Coordinator

Missy Clagg-Morrison, C-TAGME

A native of Huntington and graduate of Marshall University, Missy is known throughout the area for her passion in serving the local homeless and those in addiction recovery. Over the past ten years, in a volunteer capacity, she’s done event planning and collections for the homeless clients of the Huntington City Mission and Coalition for the Homeless’ Programs (Harmony House and First Steps First Steps Wellness & Recovery Center) as well as coordinating community-wide programs and events for those in recovery at Project Hope for Women & Children, Lily’s Place, and the Cabell County Drug Court.  Annually, along with the Cabell Huntington Breast Center, she plans and co-hosts a “Mamm & Glam” event for underserved women to obtain a (free) mammogram and afternoon of spa services. Collaborating with the Marshall Alumni Association, she began “Herd for the Homeless” in 2016, and continues to hold it annually - offering a community-wide day of service, as well as hosting several drives/collections, and historically providing 200 needy folks from the community with a hot meal, warm coats and winter gear.  From 2012 until 2017, she served in a volunteer capacity as the coordinator for Marshall Medical Outreach (“MMO”), a medical outreach program offering free medical, ophthalmology, and dermatology services to Huntington’s homeless and indigent population.

Selected for her volunteer service, Missy was named the Cabell Huntington Hospital Women’s Philanthropy Society’s 2015 Focus Award Winner, the 2015 Herald Dispatch Citizen Award – Zack Binkley Award for Community Service, and the Marshall Alumni 2015 Community Achievement Award winner. In 2014, she was selected as "Volunteer of the Year" by both the Cabell-Huntington Coalition for the Homeless and Recovery Point/The Healing Place of Huntington. She has 22 years of experience in mental health, having worked at River Park Hospital prior to coming to Marshall Psychiatry. She decided to come to Marshall due to her interest in and passion for education and a desire to be instrumental in the start-up of the new Psychiatry Residency and Fellowship Programs.

Besides volunteering, she has interests in hiking, biking, gardening, photography, and cooking. She and her husband, Brian, reside in Huntington, and daughter, Lexi, is currently finishing up a Master’s Degree at Photojournalism at Ohio University.  Missy recently finished a three-year term on the Board of Harmony House and in July was nominated to serve on the Marshall Alumni Association’s Board of Directors.  An ambassador and “Daughter of Marshall,” she looks forward to sharing Marshall’s exceptional attributes with applicants and trainees. Our Residency and Fellowship Programs are fortunate to have Missy as the Program Administrator. Residents and Fellows will soon learn they also will be "well cared for" when they join Marshall Psychiatry.  Her goal is to offer an organized and supportive training environment, and she strives to continually improve upon training processes and trainee wellness initiatives in order to fulfill this.
