Recently Austin MD Magazine did an article about Dr. Jennifer Walden. Dr. Walden is native to Austin Texas, and in this article she speaks about the reason why she went back to Austin. Dr. Walden was named one of the 24 best surgeons in the United States. She received that title by Harper’s Bazaar magazine.
Dr. Jennifer Walden was born in Austin Texas, and she grew up in Northwest Hills. Her father was a dentist and her mother was a nurse. Dr. Walden has four other siblings, and she grew up in an atmosphere where goals and education were very important. Walden is a woman that has always been determined in life. She went to the University of Texas and got her bachelors degree, and later she went to their medical school. Walden went to the plastic surgery program at UT Galveston, and she went to a post residency aesthetics surgery fellowship program at the Manhattan Eye Ear and Throat Hospital. Walden was able to thrive at that practice, and she stayed there from 2004 until 2011.
Walden moved back to Texas because of her sons, and she had to start her practice all over again when she got back to Austin. Walden was able to get a lot of support from her mother; her mother still lives in her childhood home. Apart from her mother, Dr. Walden has enlisted the help of nannies and other family members to help in the rearing of her two boys. Her practice has grown in amazing amounts in Texas, and she is able to do 99% of her surgeries in her own operating room.
Dr. Walden is truly a woman that has it all, and her dream is to help inspire other young women to pursue careers in medicine and in business. Walden wants young women to understand that it is possible to pursue these careers with confidence and determination, and she wants to let them know that success is a marathon and not a sprint. Even though success may take time, Dr. Walden is proof that all the hard work pays off in the end.
