She has served in all roles on over 100 exercises since 1980: table-top and full-scale, pollution, storms and terrorist, for both the public and private sectors, and she is a FEMA-certified ICS instructor for 100-700 level courses. She has supported public and private sector preparedness and response efforts nationwide, as well as overseas. Other areas of expertise include risk communications, liquefied natural gas (LNG), stakeholder engagement, and offshore oil and gas development.  Ms. Walker has a BFA in Architecture and Environmental Planning and an MBA in Management.
