My name is Afton Murphy, and I was born and raised in Prince Edward Island, Canada.  I am a wife and mother.  I am a daughter and sister.  I have some fantastic life long friends.  I have worked as a medical secretary for a number of years, and have learned much along the way.  I always had an interest in health care, with a particular love and appreciation for mental health and recovery.

I am a dreamer, writer, and lover of music, movies, and poetry. My two beautiful children, and husband, are the best pieces of my world. Travel and seeing live music will always be at the top of my “to do” list. I’ve known since I was a little girl that I wanted to write a book, and that I wanted to help people. I’ve yet to write that book, but I have worked in healthcare in the sum of my adult life. I love to make jewelry in my free time, and take photos of anything that brings me joy; my favourite subjects usually being my sleeping children or animals. Despite an interest in post-secondary education, my heart has always gravitated towards surrounding myself with family, and working towards building something of my own. Since becoming a mom, I’ve learned how important it is to not only encourage your children to listen to their own hearts, it’s equally important to nourish your own.
