    Dr. Walter has a passion for serving others and translating her knowledge to those around her.  These qualities led her to receiving a Clinical Excellence Award in 2017.  She explains, "As a neurologic PT, I spend time developing lasting relationships with people who have conditions that can't always be "fixed".  I've learned to develop partnerships with people to help them live life as fully as they desire.  I depend on continued professional training and scientific developments to fulfill my own potential and to impact their lives".

    She started her career in in patient therapy and was determined to bring some type of clinical research to her organization.  She initiated a project to implement outcome measures which led to a study of extra walking practice for stroke recovery.  Post receiving her NCS in 2012, she transitioned to out patient serving as a "knowledge broker" within her organization.  Her roles include patient care plus work on program development, innovation, teaching and mentoring.  Dr. Walter also uses her experience and knowledge base to be an article reviewer for the section's Locomotor Clinical Practice Guideline.

    Highlights of her career including leading a team to write and implement an organization specific CPG on the use of technology for walking recovery, being lead mentor for her organization's neurologic residency and coordinating 2 clinical trials with an exoskeleton.

    Resources she finds valuable include:
