Walsh earned her Bachelor's degree at Newton College of the Sacred Heart in 1976, her MTS from Harvard Divinity School in 1982, and her Juris Doctor from Suffolk University School of Law in 1986.
In early 2009, Walsh sought an appointment from Gov. Deval Patrick to a position as assistant executive director of the Massachusetts Health and Educational Facilities Authority at an annual salary of $175,000. The controversial appointment led to a reporter filing a request for email from the governor's office to determine whether the governor's office had offered the appointment to Walsh "as payback for being an early political supporter." The email correspondence indicated that this was the case, and Walsh's name was withdrawn from contention.
