From the time she was three years old, Dr. Walter remembers being deeply bonded to her dogs, cats, and horse. The unconditional love that these pets shared with her inspired her to pursue a career in veterinary medicine!
Dr. Walter was raised in Pearland, Texas. She truly learned the veterinary profession from the ground up—she started as a kennel assistant, then worked her way up to a Veterinary Assistant position and eventually a Veterinary Technician. All the while, she worked in a horse barn while attending college. She graduated from Texas A&M University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in May of 1999, and soon after joined Stafford Oaks Veterinary Hospital as an associate Veterinarian. Dr. Walter fell in love with the pets and clients of Stafford Oaks Veterinary Hospital, so much that she jumped on the opportunity to purchase the practice in 2009.
Dr. Walter enjoys seeing new puppies and discussing the joys of puppyhood with pet parents. She also likes treating pets for allergic skin diseases since it is a common problem for pets in her area of the country.
At home, Dr. Walter lives with her high-school sweetheart husband, Robert, and their large family. They have four children: Bobby, Logan, Hayden, and Brooklyn. They also have three cats, Morris, Braveheart, and Kirby, as well as two dogs, Mastiff, Lola, and a rescue named Blacky.
Dr. Walter is an avid Crossfit exercise fanatic, having even obtained her level-one trainer certificate! She likes cooking with her whole family and is always looking for new recipes to try. Gardening is Dr. Walter’s favorite form of relaxation.
