Quite the intense individual. GM and Yoga Teacher @Huckletree D2. Love a good brainstorm, jumping in the sea, discovering new places/people/things, building companies and helping others to see how great they are. Proud to be a part of the Startup Grind Family.
In the searing Western Australia Outback heat of approximately 48 degrees, Dr. Walker provided care to 48 pregnant women a day -- from the back of a truck. This is where the initial entrepreneurial thoughts spurred to the mind of Dr. Walker, leading to the highly successful international telemedicine practice "Global Diagnostics." The thorough care, passion and selfless acts expressed by Dr. Walker throughout his mission reveal his ambition to leverage global healthcare to the highest quality.
