However, Walker is widely recognized for directing the short movie The Brownlist (2019) and the film My Fiona (2021). In addition, she has worked on Grow The F*ck Up (TV series 2018), This Means War (short 2018), and Cafe Lisbon (short 2018).
Walker is also the director of the upcoming short film titled Miso, which is currently in the post-production phase.
Walker directed and wrote the drama film My Fiona, which was released on 23 November 2021. The movie follows Jane, played by Jeanette Maus, devastated by her best friend Fiona's unexpected suicide and helps Fiona's widow care for their son. However, their friendship develops into a more serious relationship, which may not be a good thing.
Walker also shared a post on Instagram on the day the film was released. She wrote, "Today My Fiona is AVAILABLE on all major VOD platforms! I want to thank the film for everything it's given me. My Fiona --- you taught me that writing during holidays, in between jobs, in the car, on a plane, balconies, hammocks, in the woods, in the middle of the night… it wasn't a sacrifice to miss out on life, it was a privilege to be so in love with a story that it consumed me."
In an interview with Pop Culturist in 2022, Walker mentioned that the inspiration for the film came from when she was twelve and her babysitter passed away from suicide.
She added, "It was one of those things where you go, 'The world is not a safe place. People can make these decisions to exit.' I was inspired by the spiderweb of suicide and how it affects so many people and how grief affects everyone very differently."
Walker said that she began writing the story in 2016 and had many versions. However, she also stated, "There's only one scene from the film that was in that first draft."
The Brownlist is a short film that premiered on 26 March 2019. It is directed by Walker and Ryan W. Garcia, her former boyfriend and current husband.
The Brownlist is a satirical comedy about race and what it signifies as "Diverse" in the entertainment business. It's the tragedy of a girl born with two races but didn't seem to have enough of either to fit in.
The film's cast members include Ursula Taherian as Ursula, Chriselle Almeida as Cassandra, Becky Bonar as Bonnie Becks, Sean Cancellieri as Sherman, Maxine Christians as Glen Coco, and more.
The Brownlist was a success and won the 'Jury Award' for 'Best Short Film' at the Bentonville Film Festival.
