Bio

Dr. Walker was born and raised in Niwot, CO, a small town just north of Boulder.
She completed her undergraduate education at The Colorado College, in Colorado Springs, CO, where she received a B.A. in Biology.   She spent a year working for a physician group specializing in Infertility prior to starting medical school.  She received her medical degree at The University of Colorado School of Medicine in 2008 and continued her training in Denver, CO at Exempla Saint Joseph Hospital Family Medicine Residency Program.  She completed her training in 2011 and became board certified in Family Medicine that same year.  She worked for Colorado Permanente Medical Group for two years prior to moving to WY.

The Walker family relocated to Lander in 2013.  Dr. Travis Walker, Jessica’s husband, is a board certified general surgeon in Fremont County and has his practice here in Lander as well.  Both Drs. Walker are very excited to have found such a great community to practice medicine in and raise their family.

Jessica’s focus and passion in medicine has been on preventative care and helping patients maintain healthy lifestyles in addition to caring for their acute or chronic medical needs.  She enjoys pediatric, adolescent, and women’s health but her training and experience is with patients of all ages, genders, and medical needs.  In her free time, she enjoys running, skiing, playing and watching sports, and being with her husband and two boys.
