Dr. Jennifer Walden is one of the most accomplished beauty surgeons in the USA. She was born and raised in Austin but studied in New York with some of the best beauty surgeons in the world. She was raised among four other siblings. Her mother was keen to teach them on the value of education and achieving set milestones.
Walden attended the University of Texas where she took her bachelors. She was later to be admitted to medical school, although, on a waiting list. That did not demotivate her. In fact, she was determined to work even harder and prove to everyone that she was good than those directly admitted, maybe even better. Therefore, she read her way through and graduated salutatorian.
When in medical school, she majored in plastic surgery. This decision was fostered by her love for art. Also, she had an interest in seeing women reach perfection and boost their self-confidence. Thereafter she attended UT Galveston for a plastic surgery program. Her determination led her to being accepted to the Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital for a post-residency aesthetics surgery fellowship.
Dr. Jennifer Walden stayed in Manhattan for eight more years and in collaboration with her mentor Sherrell Aston, they started a practice. When she got pregnant with her twins, she had to move back to Austin where she would get the support of her family. Walden says that raising a family is not an easy task. However, with the help of her parents, other family members and nannies, she is able to give her two boys a good life.
While working in Manhattan, she acquired loyal clients, some even international and she retains them to date. Jennifer collaborates with the Hospital at Westlake Medical Center. They admit any emergency patients who need nursing.
