Hello, my name is Fred Walker and I am the new Radiology Informatics analyst. Born and raised in Cincinnati, I grew up in the Colerain Township area. I spent a lot of time playing basketball and football; there was always somebody in the neighborhood shooting hoops. I grew up in the 80’s so music was always something I enjoyed. I would spin “records” at high school house parties. 

I had been in the IT field for a while when I came to Cincinnati Children’s and had worked with the (IT) Deskside Team for about 3 years. As I worked more and more with the Radiology group, it sparked an interest to learn some new and different skills. 

In my off time, I like to ride motorcycles with my wife, taking out-of-town weekend trips. I also like spending time with my family. 

The most recent movie I watched is my favorite: Training Day with Denzel Washington (my twin).

Hi, my name is Katie Wenz. I grew up in Maysville, KY. I am a 2021 graduate of the Diagnostic Medical Sonography program at Morehead State University.  

I love dogs and have a dog of my own named Gypsy. In my free time, I am either reading, spending time with friends and family, or catching up on Netflix shows. I am excited to join the team at Cincinnati Children’s and to meet everyone!
