Using her real estate knowledge, she also launched a commercial real estate consulting service. Ms. Walker gained experience in real estate markets across the country, including Florida, Tennessee, and California, before returning to Johnson City in 1996.

She is very familiar with health care matters after working as the business manager for a Johnson City-based cardiothoracic surgical group for over 10 years.

Ms. Walker joined Hunter, Smith & Davis in 2015 after graduating from law school. She practices in the firm’s transactional group, which focuses on real estate, corporate, and banking law.

Prior to attending law school, Ms. Walker donated her time and service to several local organizations. She chaired a $25 million campaign to build Niswonger Children’s Hospital, a unit of Ballad Health, culminating in the opening of the facility in 2009.
