About Dr. Walker
Dr Walker is a board-certified Allergy and Immunology specialist, and is also a board-certified Pediatrician. She is particularly interested in allergic and immunologic problems in children, but she has extensive experience in dealing with these disorders in adults and children. With over 30 years of experience in her own clinical practice in Salt Lake City, Utah, and on the faculty at the University of Utah School of Medicine, she brings outstanding knowledge and clinical effectiveness to our practice. Dr. Walker is a past president of the Utah Society of Allergy and Asthma, and the state association for board certified Allergy and Immunology specialists.
She received Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degrees from UCLA and then earned her M.D. degree from the University of California Davis. This was followed by a Pediatric residency at Children’s Hospital in Oakland California. She completed her Allergy and Immunology fellowship at the University of California San Francisco.
Her passion for medicine began with an insatiable interest in normal human function and the many disorders that afflict patients. She has found enormous satisfaction in making an accurate diagnosis and working with patients to restore their health. This has carried over to her frequent visits to a medical outreach program in the Solomon Islands, providing patient care and education for local health care providers.
Outside of her work, Dr. Walker and her husband are avid back country hikers. She also enjoys spending time with her daughters and grandchild.
