Walt oversees the government affairs team, coordinating strategies for legislative and regulatory positions, as well as lobbying Congress and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on a vast array of issues impacting the homecare sector. His time spent tackling policy issues has placed him on a first-name basis with Lawrence Wilson, CMS director of chronic care policy group, and numerous high-ranking individuals in federal agencies and on Capitol Hill.
Before joining AAHomecare, Walt worked at the American Orthotic & Prosthetic Association (AOPA) for seven years as director of legislative and regulatory affairs, where he worked with current AAHomecare president, Tyler Wilson. Before that, he worked on the staff of the U.S. House of Representatives Ways and Means Subcommittee on Health.
Walt is a proud graduate of the University of Richmond.

- Walt is a lifetime member of the Boston Red Sox Nation and -- here comes a shocker -- names Bill Buckner as his least favorite BoSox player of of all-time
