Walter studied at Lee University, where he focused on psychology. Then, transferred to Theological Seminary in Cleveland, TN, where he completed his Bachelor of Arts degree in Wesleyan Ministry and Pastoral Counseling, as well as a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Prior to joining The Summit, Walter worked as a therapist at Free Chapel Counseling in Gainesville, GA. There, he provided individual and group therapy to adolescents, adults, couples, and families. Additionally, he served as a youth pastor and cross-cultural pastor, offering pastoral counseling for several years.

One of Walter’s biggest passions is soccer. He plays it every chance he can get, and coaches a few youth teams. Walter cherishes quality time with his family and enjoys taking trips to new places. Alongside soccer, Walter has a profound love for music. He relishes attending concerts and occasionally plays the saxophone. Additionally, community service holds a special place in Walter’s heart. He actively volunteers with local organizations to give back to his community and make a positive impact. Whether through sports, music, or serving others, Walter finds fulfillment in connecting with people and exploring new avenues of growth and learning.
