About Tamara

Tammy Walker enjoys working with children. One of her primary roles is to be an educator of new parents. She wants to provide the best care possible to the individual patients and their parents. She says “when a parent trusts you with their child, it’s an honor to oversee their care and provide expertise.”
She and her husband, Josh, have four children. With family in this area, she said it was an easy transition “to jump across The Sisters” to Rock Springs from Evanston, Wyo.
