About the Author

Hope A. Walter, EdD grew up in East Greenville, Pennsylvania. After graduating from Upper Perkiomen High School, Hope received her BS in Elementary Education at Kutztown University in 1996, her MS in Educational Psychology in 2002 from the University of Las Vegas in Nevada, and her EdD in Educational Leadership in 2018. Currently, Hope resides in McMinnville, Oregon with her husband of twenty-five years, her three boys, and her two dogs and two cats. She works as an adjunct professor at Linfield University and Oregon State University teaching mathematics education and educational psychology to future teachers.

Punk’s Plight was conceptualized after teaching future teachers about Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). Hope saw the connection between ACEs and the journey of her own bulldog, Pumpkin, who was neglected, rescued, and spent the rest of her life learning how to trust and love again. Sadly, Pumpkin passed away peacefully in November 2020 after a long life with the Walter family. Hope wants Punk’s story to help children suffering from neglect by showing children they can recover, heal, and prosper despite experiencing neglect.
