Dr. Jennifer Walden is a widely popular national figure who’s known for her expertise in the field of plastic surgery. Walden who grew a taste for the art of surgery at very early age obtained medical doctorate from the University of Texas, Austin.
After being selected for a fellowship at the renowned Manhattan Eye, Ear & Throat Hospital, she shifted her base of operations to New York. During her time in the Big Apple, Walden gained her fame while serving as an associate of Dr. Sherrell Aston. When she did eventually return to Texas, Walden kick-started her own clinic named as – Walden Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center.
Standing Out from the Rest
Dr. Walden is a rarity in the field of cosmetic and plastic surgery. Around 92% of the board-certified surgeons in the country are male. The reason for this can be attributed to how one has to go through at least five years of post-medical training to be a surgeon. For women, this would mean that they would have to sacrifice the idea of being a mother in her late 20’s or early 30’s. Not only has Walden been able to overcome these hurdles and earn recognition from peers but she has done so while multi-tasking as a mother.
Her elevation to the executive committee of the ASAPS is just one of many examples of how she has been able to break down barriers for her gender. Walden had been a member of the ASAPS since 2008, and now has become the first woman to serve as a secretary for the societies’ executive committee. In addition to her association with ASAPS, Walden is also a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and also a fellow of the American College of Surgeons.
In addition to her new role as the secretary of the ASAPS, Dr. Jennifer Walden will continue on as the commissioner of communications of ASAPS. The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, abbreviated as ASAPS, is the global leader dedicated to ensuring the best practices for aesthetic plastic and cosmetic surgery.
