*Dr. Walter always reads over my records carefully before the visit. She seems to genuinely enjoy listening to her patients & then families. She speaks in understandable phrases without ever talking down to me. I especially appreciate the way she lets me give input about things that I've learned from with PD. She is always warm & encouraging & I am extremely grateful to be her patient. I hope you will give her a raise to encourage her to stay with Kaiser she is brilliant - Your rivals will try to recruit her!

I have always been a Pacific Northwesterner at heart. I grew up in Eastern Washington, in the beautiful desert. I later grew to also love the wetter, greener Western side of the Cascades, attending college at the University of Puget Sound and completing residency and fellowship at the University of Washington in Seattle. I also lived for a number of years in Washington, DC and Virginia (for medical school at the University of Virginia), and enjoyed these locations. I always knew I would eventually return to the Pacific Northwest. I enjoy living in Oregon immensely for the natural beauty, the friendliness of the community, and the ties to my family.

About my practice

My passion within neurology is the diagnosis and on-going care of patients with movement disorders, including Parkinson's disease, dystonia, tremors, chorea, ataxia, and related conditions. I trained in this subspecialty at the University of Washington and practiced in this field prior to joining Kaiser Permanente. I chose this subspecialty because I love that it still requires "old-fashioned" style doctoring where the patient's story and the details of the neurologic exam are often much more important than the results of labs and scans. I value listening to my patients and carefully observing their movements. I love that I often get to know my patients quite well over the long term, and this allows me to tailor medical decisions to individual needs. I am skilled at botulinum toxin (Botox) injection for patients with dystonia, torticollis, hemifacial spasm, blepharospasm, and migraine. I also assess patients who may be candidates for deep brain stimulation (DBS) and provide care after the procedure.

How I thrive

I'm a devoted mom to two young children. As a family, we love hiking, camping, experimenting with various creative art forms, and exploring local children's activities.
