It was at quite a young age that Jennifer Walden figured out what it was she wanted to do. This was also helped by the fact that both of her parents were also high achieving and well to do, as her father was a dentist and her mother was a surgical nurse. Their support was a great push for Jennifer to be successful. After high school, Jennifer Walden went on to attend the University of Texas, where she earned her degree in Biology. She later went on to study in Galveston at Texas University, where she managed to successfully acquire her M.D. This is when she went on to work in Manhattan at the Ear, Eye, and Throat Hospital. This opportunity led to an 8 year long stay at the facility, where she worked with Dr. Sherrel Aston and gained a considerable amount of experience.
By 2011, Jennifer’s personal life was becoming a little more demanding, as her family was starting to grow. It was because of this that she ultimately decided she would make a move back to her hometown in Texas to be closer to family. This was not the end of her career though, as she is still a leading plastic surgeon who has since been advancing her career from Houston. Being a top surgeon in the field is a quite demanding job, never mind the added aspect of being a mother and trying to spend time with family. Luckily, Jennifer excels in this type of situation and loves the challenge, which is made a little easier by the extensive amount of support she receives from friends and family.
The high level of success that Jennifer has been able to achieve in her field is testament to her strong work ethic and determination, as plastic surgery is a male dominated field. Jennifer takes a lot of pride in how far she has come, even making it onto the board of directors for the ASAPS. Despite having to balance work time and family time, the level of support and family she has to encourage her will make the journey much more rewarding.
