Ms. Walters commenced her tenure at the Cincinnati State Technical and Community College in 1970, where she first began as head of the allied health department. After six years, she ascended to the role of coordinator of medical assistants, a position she has held since 1976.

She has also sat on the board of directors of the ACLU in Cincinnati since 1988.
To remain abreast of developments in her industry, Ms. Walters maintains affiliation with several organizations, including the Ohio State Society of Medical Assistants, where she has served as secretary since 1997 and previously from 1993 to 1994. She has also sat on the long range strategy committee of the Ohio Society of Medical Technologists since 1995, having formerly maintained membership with such entities as the American Society of Allied Health Professions, the Ohio Society of Allied Health Professions, and the American Association of Medical Assistants.
