RJ Walker has been around the caregiving industry most of his life. RJ grew up with his parents providing foster care services to children who experience intellectual and/or developmental disabilities in his family home. This has given him an exceptionally deep understanding of how necessary it is to provide solid supports to people in the I/DD community, and how meaningful those supports can be to the individuals served. While RJ graduated with a degree in Business from Oregon State University in 2019, he chose to apply this experience and education to the I/DD field.
In his free time, RJ likes to explore new locations, listen to podcasts, and watch sports.
