Actress Kate Walsh is an established television star, best known as the driven neo-natal surgeon Dr. Addison Montgomery on the hit shows “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Private Practice.” But when the actress wanted to lend her fame to the greater good, she came to Oceana. It was a perfect fit: Kate, a native Californian, has a natural affinity for sea turtles.
