Dr. Walter is a native of Iowa. She is a graduate of the University of Iowa - GO HAWKEYES!  She earned her medical degree at David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA in California.  She completed her pediatric internship and residency at the Ohio State University and Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio.  Following her residency, Dr. Walter was drawn by the mountains and outside activities of Asheville and joined MAPA in the summer of 1999.

Since then, Dr. Walter, along with her husband Mark, has raised 2 children here.  She enjoys being a mom, being very active with any and all sports, loves to be outside, and likes to volunteer.

The best thing Dr. Walter loves about her practice is watching all the children grow and be successful.  Dr. Walter says "Children inspire me every day and their parents are amazing! - MAPA's loving and caring nature makes it easy to work here!"
