One of the most successful doctors to be from Austin has recently returned to the city to rebuild their practice. Not only are they an extremely successful surgeon, that person is also a woman. Her name is Jennifer Walden as she is one of the most respected beauty surgeons in the United States. She got her start in Austin, later transitioned to New York City, and is now in Austin running a quickly-building practice that she built up in just 3 years. She is also a mother as well. There is nothing that she can’t do.
Dr. Walden grew up in the city and went to school there. She got her undergraduate degree at the University of Texas. After that, she was wait-listed for medical school at Texas but later got in. She chose plastic surgery and went to school for medicine at the The University of Texas at Galveston. The art and creativity of plastic surgery are what primarily led her to the decision to study beauty surgery.
After growing up and going to school in Austin, TX Walden was awarded a residency position at the Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat hospital. Only two people each year receive this residency. The fact hat she got it may have something to do with the fact that she was the salutatorian of her class in medical school.she worked very hard in medical school to get great grades because she felt slighted by the fact that she was not initially admitted into the school.
Because of her strong work ethic when it came to her professional life Jennifer waited until her late 30’s to have kids. Ther wasn’t much time for dating. This is what led her to have in vitro fertilization. She gave birth two twin boys in that are now 6 years old. Her commitment to her family is a big part of the reason that she moved back to Texas.
She moved back to Austin so she could raise her sons closer to their extended family. She has started a new practice from scratch in Austin and has built it up in just the three years since she moved back to Austin.
