Kim Murphy is a Registered Dental Assistant, specializing in Orthodontics. She has been with her practice for over 33 years. Kim resides in Ventura with her husband, John and her dog, Primo. She recently lost her “surfing” dog, Haole Boy, who passed away at the age of twelve after fighting a two year battle with cancer. Haole was actually the reason Kim became involved with A Walk On Water, as he was invited to participate at an event. Six years later…she was hooked! A Walk On Water (AWOW) is a non-profit that provides Surf Therapy to individuals with special needs or disabilities.   A day with AWOW is a magical beach day for the whole family.  Kim has served as the secretary for AWOW for 3 years, and recently has taken a back seat on the Board of Directors. “This amazing opportunity to assist in bringing joy to others was provided by an organic connection my dog made with humans through his surfing ability. It led me down a path of realizing my purpose, and I will continue to honor this amazing opportunity in giving back.”
