Dr. Walker has been our medical director since 2003. A graduate of the Ohio State University's College of Veterinary Medicine, she completed an internship at the Hollywood Animal Hospital, Hollywood, FL.
Dr. Walker is a 24 yr. veteran of the U.S. Army Reserve Veterinary Corps. As a volunteer, she served on active duty during Operation Desert Shield/Storm. She especially enjoyed the challenge of working with the many military working dogs during her years as a reserve veterinary medical officer.
Dr. Walker has special interests in surgery, dentistry and behavior. Her experience, gentle and kind (yet firm, if needed) hand in handling pets (even potentially "difficult" dogs) and devotion to excellence in service and veterinary medical practice, has earned her the respect and appreciation of clients, patients and staff here at Pima North. In fact, our technicians have dubbed Dr. Walker the "German shepherd whisperer".
In her spare time, Dr. Walker enjoys exploring AZ on horseback, hiking, cycling, skiing, wildlife watching, cooking and home improvement projects. Dr. Walker is also a volunteer with the Flying Samaritans.
Dr. Walker's animal family currently only includes 3 horses, Phoenix, Montana, Trigger and her German Shepherd Winston.
