Dedicated to the prevention of the overwhelming SILENCE and response to injuries of abused woman and children in our churches and communities, she is ever moving toward to shine the light for clergy and spiritual leadership to become informed and proactively aware to face the realities of Family Violence/Intimate Partner Violence and its traumatic consequences is much harder to overcome than staying blind to it.

She has been a National Certified Victim Services Advocate, Criminal Justice Planner, Substance Abuse Network Coordinator, Legal Recruiter, Paralegal Substance Abuse Counselor, General Training Manager for AMTRAK, a mother of 3 adult children and 1 teenager plus the grandmother of 1.
Like the main speaker for the 2011 conference Dr. Rivera, Chaplain Walker-Clark sees the survivor of domestic violence as more than the sum of her parts, a person who, having recognized that she deserves better, is then capable to rise to heights that reflect the newly found power to take charge of her life. This concept is called the Power of Recovery from domestic violence. I too can share this paradigm for I am a generational survivor of family abuse and violence. No More, No Mas…the dialogue must continue to heal our family hurts in our homes and in our churches.
