Our 2014 Event Chairwoman

Dr. Rondi Walker

Dr. Rondi Walker

Dr. Rondi Walker is a surgeon and the owner of Walker Plastic Surgery. She is recognized in her field as a physician providing exceptional aesthetic and reconstructive surgical care.

For over 20 years, Dr. Walker has worked with Knock Out Abuse to help victims identify, understand and admit abuse. She has supported shelters and housing for women and children. More importantly she has identified the critical need for the development of educational programming and arrangement of legal assistance that enables continued recovery for the victims of abuse.

In addition to her support of the DC Lawyers Volunteer Project, Dr. Walker has brought on board DV Leap - Domestic Violence Legal Empowerment and Appeals Project. DV Leap provides a strong voice for justice by fighting to overturn unjust trial court outcomes, advancing legal protections for victims and their children through expert appellate advocacy, training lawyers, psychologist and judges on best practices, and spearheading domestic violence litigation in the Supreme Court.

Dr. Walker's promotional "Knock Out Days" at Walker Plastic Surgery have become a valuable source of income for Knock Out Abuse. She will again this year donate proceeds from "Knock Out Days."

A mother of three, Dr. Walker, understands the need for creating a legacy for the Knock Out Abuse effort. She will be creating a Junior Executive Committee to ensure the continued success of Knock Out Abuse for the coming decades.
